A new 750-home development in Lichfield has moved a step closer.
IM Land says it has begun the search for development partners for the project in Curborough.
The company says The Lakes of Curborough development will include 233 affordable homes along with a new primary school, sports pitches and a centre for the Staffordshire Air Cadets.
Jonathan Dyke from IM Land said he was extremely pleased to be pushing the green light on the plans.
“We understand the importance of providing quality shared community facilities and have already developed strong links with Lichfield,” he said.
“We’ve been liaising with the Air Cadets to create a new home for them on the scheme. We’ve also recently sponsored the transformation of the St Mary’s public library, as they share our passion for creating new high quality community hubs.
“We want The Lakes at Curborough to also be seen as a real local asset and be a desirable new neighbourhood to live in Lichfield.”
Jonathan added that The Lakes at Curborough will benefit from improved access from Watery Lane and Netherstowe Lane, with new walkways and cycle paths also set to connect the new neighbourhood to the rest of the city.
“Placemaking is top of our agenda,” he said. “If you look at our scheme at Blythe Valley Park in Solihull, you can see the level of detail being delivered – the landscaping, playareas, cycle paths and walkways all offer a strong sense of connection, which is at the heart of all good communities.”
