JLL has been appointed by the government’s housing agency, Homes England, to advise them on a tailored marketing and disposal strategy leading to the sale of their 51 hectare (126 acre) landholding near Sutton Coldfield, which forms part of the Langley SUE comprising some 264 hectares (652 acres) in total. The Homes England landholding is set to deliver c.2,200 new homes from the allocated 5,500 homes designated as the Langley Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE), one of the largest residential property developments in the UK that will meet some of the housing needs for Birmingham over the coming years.

Located eight miles from Birmingham and close to key transport networks like the A38, M42 and M6 Toll, the Langley SUE forms part of the city’s ambitious growth plans to deliver 51,000 new homes in the region by 2031.

Together with the significant residential property development, the project will also establish a new sustainable community in the region. This will include a network of public open space provision, three primary schools, a secondary school and sixth form, a district centre and three local centres incorporating health and fitness, sports and play facilities. Planning is currently pending.

Alongside Homes England, the SUE will also be delivered by Taylor Wimpey, Vistry, Bellway and William Davis acting in partnership through a Consortium Collaboration Agreement.

The project is led by JLL’s residential team in Birmingham, headed by Director Simon Horan. Commenting on the transaction, he said:

“This extensive sustainable development is a cornerstone of the city’s growth plans. Not only will it bring considerable benefits to new residents, but it will also set a national benchmark for high quality residential development projects at this scale.

“As a region, the Midlands has high growth potential. We’re continuing to see strong appetite from developers be they national, regional or local housebuilders looking to be part of a sustainable development where placemaking is a core attribute. This urban extension will bring positive economic benefits to the region and adds considerable firepower to improvements in infrastructure and job creation.”

Sarah Taylor, Head of Planning & Enabling for the Homes England Central and West Development Team, and Project Lead for Langley SUE, says:

“As the government’s housing and regeneration agency, Homes England is committed to ensuring that more people in England have access to better homes in the right places. Having acquired 94.68 ha (234 acres)  at Langley SUE in 2021, our Strategic Vision for Langley SUE is to work with our Consortium Partners to establish a new sustainable community of around 5,500 homes, including schools, community facilities and infrastructure, and set a national benchmark for high quality development at this scale. We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Jones Lang LaSalle who will provide expert property advice across the Agency landholdings (delivering around 2,200 new homes). JLL’s commitment to sustainability and the creation of places that thrive gives us confidence that they will play a key role in achieving our Strategic Vision.”
