In the future a master plan for the Lanchester cluster will be developed alongside the community and stakeholders and everyone within the cluster will have an opportunity to have their say. Significant investment has already been committed to this cluster: The new Lanchester School has opened Park Hall School has been redeveloped under the Building Schools for the future (BSF) programme and opened in October 2008 Over £500,000 invested into improving Lanchester Park Construction of 44 new homes completed on the Oaklands development In 2005, we worked with residents to develop a Neighbourhood plan for this area which was approved by the Council in November 2005.
Following the strategic framework review which was agreed in June 2009 we are planning the regeneration based on a cluster approach which focuses on bringing forward regeneration activities centred around large scale investments such as new schools and villages centres.
In 2005, we worked with local people and businesses to develop a Neighbourhood plan for the Kingshurst and Babbs Mill neighbourhoods. The Neighbourhood plan identified the physical regeneration plans for the area which included identifying some properties for demolition and new housing sites.
