Care home disposal is final piece in HDD’s Lawley Village jigsaw

23rd November 2017

A decade after work first began at a major mixed-use development in Shropshire, commercial property developer Henry Davidson Developments (HDD) has announced it has disposed of the final plot.

LNT Care Homes has purchased the key 1.2 acre plot at Lawley Village, Telford, and is expected to start construction of its 66-bed facility within the next few days.. The care home will  be operational in Q3 2018.

HDD commenced construction of the £30 million district centre development in 2007. The scheme comprises a 40,500 sq ft Morrisons supermarket, a children’s day nursery, a Marston’s Inns and Taverns public house and retail occupiers including Subway, Greggs and Barnardo’s. HDD has also delivered 23 apartments and 16 town houses, and an extra care facility for Sanctuary.

Scott Davidson, managing director of Birmingham-based HDD, said: “This has been a major commitment for us since work first started in 2007. It has been very successful and well received right from the start of our 10-year association with Lawley Village.

“To have sold the final plot to LNT Care Homes represents the very last piece of the jigsaw for us. We are very proud of the facilities we have provided for the people of Telford. The district centre is a great example of what we do well; developing great schemes which attract well known retailers and local businesses to ensure the community is well served.”

The Lawley Village site, located just off the M54 motorway, covers more than 330 acres of land. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2028, across 11 phases, with more than 3,500 homes and both primary and secondary schools. Telford & Wrekin Borough Council first approved plans for the £600 million development in 2005.
