Langley Sustainable Urban Extension and Peddimore Supplementary Planning Documents

Closes 22 Oct 2018

Opened 10 Sep 2018


The Birmingham Development Plan was adopted by the City Council in January 2017, and is part of the city’s statutory planning framework, guiding decisions on development and regeneration activity. The plan allocated land at Langley for a Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE) of approximately 6,000 homes, and 71 hectares of land for employment development at Peddimore. Both of these sites make important contributions towards meeting the city’s overall housing and employment needs to 2031.

The draft SPDs set out the following:

Langley SUE Draft SPD

  • A Vision to set out what the city expect Langley to be once it is developed, including a number of Big Moves that identify the key structuring elements that need to be delivered to make Langley a successful place.
  • Development Principles to provide planning guidance and advice to developers on matters covering Connectivity, Activity and Design.
  • Delivery requirements to support development, including site-wide strategies, infrastructure delivery and the planning process.

Peddimore Draft SPD

  •  A Vision to set out what the city expect Peddimore to be once  it is developed.
  • Development Principles to provide planning guidance and advice to developers on matters covering Connectivity, Design and Sustainability.
  • Delivery requirements to support development, including partnership working, infrastructure delivery and business support.

The documents are availble to view below, and we welcome your views on the documents via the online survey.
