Birmingham is set to see a significant expansion in its housing developments in 2024. With a growing population and a diverse demographic, the city is addressing its urgent housing needs with several major projects. These developments are not just focused on providing new homes but also aim to enhance community facilities and local services. With the ongoing discussion of ‘buy or renovate’ still being a hot topic, Skip Hire Birmingham experts have looked into the property market to spot the next new build trends in the West Midlands city.

Ladywood Estate

Port Loop, Ladywood

Icknield Port Loop, set to be a unique island community, will feature 1,150 homes along with a community hub, office space, public green spaces, playgrounds, and a new leisure centre.

Langley, Sutton Coldfield

The Langley scheme is another massive development, transforming a large area with 5,500 new homes, schools, medical centres, and leisure facilities.

West Works, Longbridge

At the former MG Rover factory site in Longbridge, St Modwen Homes is building hundreds of homes, with recent approvals for new phases adding to the development.

Belgrave Village, Balsall Heath

Belgrave Village, located at a former college and sports site, is developing 438 residential units, comprising apartments and townhouses.

The Point, Castle Vale
