Perry Barr Residential Scheme, Perry Barr, Birmingham

Birmingham City Council, Arcadis and Lendlease Construction

The Perry Barr Residential Scheme is an exemplar sustainable residential development in a well-connected urban setting. It will deliver nearly 2000 new homes over a series of phases, with key infrastructure including green spaces and a school being delivered up-front. The mixed community will include older people, renters, accessible affordable housing products, and owner occupiers. The ambition, quality, and pace of delivery should be recognised.

Setting a very high bar, it achieved significant social value surpassing targets with over £300m of contracts secured by local construction firms/suppliers, delivering huge benefits to local businesses, charities and local schools including extensive engagement.
