Langley Sustainable Urban Extension and Peddimore Supplementary Planning Documents

Closed 22 Oct 2018

Opened 10 Sep 2018

Overview

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.

Why We Are Consulting

An online survey has been set up for people and organisations to provide their comments on the draft SPDs (a copy is available to download below). People can also provide comments by email or post (Planning & Development, Birmingham City Council, 1 Lancaster Circus, Birmingham, B4 7DJ).

A number of public drop in sessions have been organised for people to attend, ask questions and provide their comments. Details for these sessions are set out below. The draft SPDs can also be viewed at libraries in Sutton Coldfield Town Centre, Walmley, Boldmere, Mere Green and Castle Vale, and at 1 Lancaster Circus, Birmingham, B4 7DJ.

Meetings will also be held with key stakeholders throughout the consultation period.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) on particular matters such as housing and open space, health, education and transport are available to view below. A link has also been provided to the Birmingham Development Plan.

Transport for the West Midlands are currently running a consultation on the Sprint route from Birmingham City Centre to Sutton Coldfield Town Centre via Langley. A link to this consultation is available below.

What Happens Next

The SPDs need to be adopted by the City Council in a timely manner to ensure the guidance and requirements can be used to influence decisions on planning applications for the sites. To ensure this happens, the preparation of the SPDs is progressing to the following timetable:

  •   Public consultation on Draft SPDs – 10th September to 22nd  October
  •    Review comments and prepare final SPDs – November to   December 2018
  •    October 2018 Adoption of final SPDs by Cabinet – January 2019
