Work can now begin to regenerate the brownfield site, which is located within a mile of the city centre in Digbeth. The development will deliver a new sustainable neighbourhood centred around a renaturalised River Rea, which runs through the middle of the site, but is not currently accessible to the public.

Dandara Living will make significant investment in landscaping the river, creating desirable new public spaces along its banks and laying the foundations for a dynamic new mixed-use destination a short walk from the city centre. This first phase of the development will spearhead the delivery of the Council’s Rea Valley Urban Quarter regeneration with successive phases delivering further homes, workspaces, commercial space and new active travel routes.

With an already strong track record of delivery in Birmingham City Centre at Aston Place and Unity & Armouries, we are delighted that Birmingham City Council’s Planning Committee has today approved our application to deliver a new neighbourhood at Warners Fields.

The redevelopment will deliver much-needed new homes to meet Birmingham’s housing need and drive the ecological and environmental transformation of this part of the city by renaturalising the River Rea and delivering significant net biodiversity gain.

Rachel Allwood - Planning Director, Dandara Living

Rachel continues, "Phase 1 will see the excavation and landscaping of the River Rea for the first time in decades, alongside over 1,300 new homes and 2,700sq.m. of commercial space. This initial investment will catalyse the construction of successive phases, including further mixed-use developments and bring much needed regeneration into the area.

We are grateful to the Officers at BCC who recognised the necessity of this phasing and recommended the scheme for approval and to the Committee Members who approved it."
