Birmingham City Council will launch its search for investment and development partners to deliver a major housing-led regeneration of the Ladywood area this month, it has announced.
It will begin the procurement process for the scheme, which would be one of the largest city centre estate renewals in the UK, on 26 March and successful bidders will then be invited to ‘participate in dialogue’ by 21 June.
The council said it was seeking a partner that could “demonstrate a successful track record of delivering housing regeneration initiatives” for the 150-acre project.
The partner will be tasked with designing a new masterplan for the area that “responds to the needs of residents and delivers the scale of improvements envisaged through the Big City Plan”.
Birmingham’s cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods, Sharon Thompson, said: “This is a huge opportunity to help transform the lives and opportunities of the people that live in this part of the city centre. There will be a real chance for everyone with a stake in the neighbourhood to have their say and help shape the future of the area.”
