The charity making life better by water

Icknield Port Loop - Birmingham

We've worked in collaboration with Birmingham City Council to secure outline planning consent at Icknield Port Loop.

This site extends to approximately 43 acres (18 hectares) to the west of Birmingham city centre.

The proposed scheme is a mixed-use development including up to 1,150 new homes, plus retail, employment and leisure uses, non-residential institutions, hotels and community facilities.

Alongside the City Council we have instructed real estate advisor Savills to secure a joint venture partner, which will help to unlock the development potential of a major regeneration site near Edgbaston Reservoir.

Barry Allen, head of Savills Birmingham, said: "This is a unique opportunity for a major canal-side regeneration scheme in Birmingham and we are delighted to be working with the landowners to bring it to life. The focus now is on selecting a strong private sector delivery partner to invest in the development and begin to realise its full potential."
