Harrowby Road nominated for prestigious regeneration award

Residential regeneration scheme Harrowby Road (Woodlands) has been nominated for the Regeneration Project of the Year award at this year’s Insider West Midlands Property Awards, recognising leading developments in the region for outstanding construction, value and design. The Insider West Midlands Property Awards, being held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham takes place on 19 November 2015 and recognises the outstanding projects and the contribution they have made to the Midlands landscape over the past year.

Harrowby Road, located in the Moxley area of Walsall is a mixed tenure scheme of 234 open market and affordable homes. The success that has been achieved by the partnership of Kier Living and Walsall Housing Group (whg) led to further sites across the borough being released for development including Pennine Way, Somerfield Road, Wessex Close and Short Street (which recently secured the Small Housing Public Sector category of the Build in Quality Awards 2015).

The project has seen Kier Living lead in the rehabilitation of this former mining site to deliver a vibrant new and integrated community that enjoys enhanced landscaping and connectivity, while setting new standards in the region for quality of accommodation. Not only has Harrowby Road delivered on quality, value and design, bringing a choice of house types to the market in the area but it has also boosted the local economy in the form or jobs and local supply chain opportunities. As part of the partnership with whg and nearby Bilston College, Kier Living has created training and education opportunities for young people in the region through its apprenticeship recruitment and training programme.

Kier Living’s entry faces stiff competition in the Regeneration Project of the Year category, with the much praised £600m regeneration of New Street Station, which officially opened in September dubbed ‘Grand Central Birmingham’ also featuring in the nominations list. Orbit Homes’ Queensway Development in Leamington Spa and the redevelopment of the BBC’s former studios at Pebble Mill into a brand new medical and life science hub, led by Calthorpe Estates make up a diverse line up in a category that reflects the growing strength of the industry in the region over the past 12 months.
