Project overview

The Shrewsbury development land originally comprised of around 100 acres split approximately 50/50 between residential land (eastern parcel) and employment land (western parcel).

The land is allocated in the adopted local plan as part of a wider strategic urban extension. It   benefits from outline planning permission for up to 550 residential units and 37.65 net acres of employment land, including B1, B2 and B8 uses, a hotel and a care home with up to 70 beds. It also supports local centre and community uses (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, D1 and D2).

Lands Improvement has invested over £2m towards the construction of new access points, ground preparation and in bringing utility services to the development. The serviced, residential and commercial development land has been sold in six separate parcels to Vistry, Galliers Homes, Bellway Homes, Miller Homes, Lioncourt Homes and Morris and Company.

Project progress

Lands Improvement is currently on site, having invested a further £1m to service and prime the remaining employment land for development. The works underway include a new access road and utility services. The remaining employment land is on the market with Toby Shaw Roberts.


The land is located on the southern side of the historic market town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
