A group of students have been given hands-on experience of housebuilding at a special event hosted by David Wilson Homes in Stanford in the Vale.

17 students from King Alfred’s Academy visited the developer’s River Meadow development on Ware Road to try their hand at a variety of practical skills, whilst learning the ins and outs of the construction industry from the experienced site team.

Work to regenerate and restore the faded glory of another Victorian building in Birmingham’s historic Corporation Street is to receive a £9.5m investment from the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). The ornate Citadel building is being transformed into an eco-friendly hybrid mix of office, retail and social space, helping to bring new life and vitality to what had traditionally been the city’s premier shopping street.

Victoria Hills, Chief Executive of the RTPI said, “The fact that planning is so central to this bill makes it feel like the profession has been promoted from the Championship to the Premier League.
