London developer Galliard Homes has teamed up with regional landowner-developer Apsley House Capital and Midlands-based property developer Wavensmere Homes to deliver a brace of schemes worth £300m.
The two residential-led schemes, Belgrave Village in Birmingham and the regeneration of the HMS Ganges Naval facility in Shotley near Ipswich.
Belgrave Village will be built in Balsall Heath, between the city centre and Moseley, the 12-acre development fronts the A4540 Belgrave Middleway and the A435 Haden Way and is bounded by Sherbourne Road and Balsall Heath Road.

Masterplanned by Clague Architects, the project will require the preservation and restoration of several Royal Navy heritage assets, including the Grade II listed ceremonial mast, Grade II listed entrance gates, a mid-19th Century Fort and two Martello Towers.
There will also be nearly 10,000 sq m of new and converted commercial and leisure premises in a new commercial centre which will include a grocer, retail space, a gymnasium and children’s play areas.
