Just as its architecture and design principles reflect the style of more traditional English villages, the overall layout at Lawley Village contributes to the 'feel' of a modern community. From family-friendly 'safer streets', pleasant views and tree-lined avenues this is a development that has been thoughtfully designed, making it the perfect place to call home.
Newly-created neighbourhoods surround the commercial and social hub of Lawley Square - an area providing a bustling environment of shops, offices, restaurants and bars, complemented by the development of a new primary school and extensive park areas. The centrally-positioned Lawley Square provides the focus for commercial, community and retail uses as well as a great place for residents in the area to meet and get to know one another.
Ironstone Management Services (IMS) actively promotes the creation of a community and provides opportunities for residents to meet and get involved in the community in which they live.
If you want to find out more about community involvement please contact the IMS Resident Involvement and New Communities Officer, Emily Benson on 01952 630585 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whilst it is still very much a growing community, the new Lawley Village is already promoting its own sense of identity. With the assistance of IMS, a new Community Association has been formed by elected members; it has set up its own web site where information on the latest news and activities can be found:
Off-roading with the walking bus
Lawley Primary School operates a Walking Bus every Monday and Wednesday during school term time. It provides a healthy and environmentally friendly way for children to get to school, at the same time reducing traffic and parking congestion around the school.
If you would like to find out more about this or are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact either Emily Benson at IMS on 01952 630585 or Lawley Primary School directly on 01952 388410.
