Raise a glass to Telford's newest pub
1st August 2012
Work has started on Telford's newest pub restaurant situated in Lawley Village.
The Mayor of the Borough of Telford and Wrekin, Cllr Kevin Guy, cut the first sod on the site in Lawley Square on Tuesday 31st July, in a ceremony also attended by Steve Roberts, Acquisitions Manager for Marston's, Peter Maddock Senior Project Manager from Henry Davidson Developments, a wholly owned subsidiary of Development Securities Plc, Guy Scott, Project Director of Lawley Village Development Group, and Nicola Marshall, Head of Midlands West from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
The pub is scheduled to open early next spring, giving residents of the new Lawley Village neighbourhoods which surround Lawley Square a place to eat, drink and socialise on their doorsteps.
The pub will offer a Milestone Rotisserie format with an extensive range of food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. The pub restaurant is part of an ongoing new build programme from Marston's Inns and Taverns to provide quality pubs throughout the UK.
Work is now well underway on the creation of Lawley Square as a bustling commercial and community hub, with the opening of a Morrisons supermarket due in November, and building work progressing on other shops, offices and restaurants.
Steve Roberts, Acquisitions Manager for Marston's Inns & Taverns, says: "We're delighted that work has started on the new pub restaurant at Lawley Village. We hope the pub restaurant will build a great reputation locally, offering top quality pub food and an unrivalled selection of drinks, including cask ales from across the country."
Lawley Village is one of the largest sustainable urban residential-led developments of its kind in the UK, ultimately providing some 3,500 new homes alongside new retail, commercial, education and leisure facilities.
The new community comprises four distinct neighbourhoods and has been carefully designed to offer a bustling social hub, a combination of contemporary and traditional architecture, public open spaces and a host of local amenities, including a supermarket, offices, shops, community facilities and a primary school.
For commuters, the village is well served by both existing and planned public transport links, while the M54 and M6 are only a short drive away, with Telford's vast array of shopping and leisure opportunities located less than three miles away.
Ironstone Management Services (IMS), a joint venture between Bournville Village Trust and Sanctuary Housing Association, will deliver Stewardship at Lawley Village, which includes estate wardens, enhanced community communications and events, digital technology and high-quality landscaping. Residents will also be encouraged to become actively involved and to help make decisions about the future of their village.
Lawley Village is being created by leading developers Charles Church, David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes, Barratt Homes and Taylor Wimpey.
For more information about Lawley Village and the homes available for sale at present as well as those planned for phase six, please contact the developers directly.
