BETTER TOGETHER

A PLACE DESIGNED TO BRING
IT ALL TOGETHER

The masterplan sets the boundaries of the settlement and puts everything in the optimum place: schools near homes, homes near green space, employers near major roads. The natural landscape breaks up the built environment into three distinct villages and separates employment space from homes.

FUTURE AT WORK

The Midlands Tech Park at J3 will provide 4 million sq ft, equal to 62 football for major employers – dynamic businesses that both local and regional governments want to attract. The park will accommodate the industries of the future – advanced manufacturing, agritech, modern methods of construction and renewable technologies – strengthening existing local clusters.

TAKING CARE OF IT ALL

Three garden villages offering a total of 2,500 new and affordably priced homes on land furthest from the motorway. A new health centre, school and amenities will meet the needs of new residents and relieve pressure on those in neighbouring communities, providing capacity and choice for existing residents.

OPEN TO NATURE

J3 opens 300+ hectares of countryside to public access, including a woodland park with trails and activities, a new country park, local parks, playing fields and allotments. This variety puts green space on the doorsteps of all residents as well as attracting visitors from neighbouring towns and villages.

ACCESS ALL AREAS

Within the community, 10 miles of new footpaths and cycle paths will create safe and healthy routes from homes to community facilities, jobs and transport. Public transport linking neighbouring communities will be cleanly powered by electricity or hydrogen.

MAINTAINING MONARCH'S WAY

A 70-metre green buffer protects the character and setting of Monarch’s Way – the escape route taken by the future Charles II in 1651. There are areas we can continue to improve, making it safer for walkers to cross the A41.

Skills for the future

Employers need skilled employees and local people need training for new opportunities. J3 will provide a skills pool for employers and upskilling for local people through a new university campus. Research space will develop marketable new ideas while an incubator supports university spin-offs and other start-up businesses. Close links to employers on site will ensure that training and research is relevant.
