A UNIQUE recipe book of Walsall-inspired dishes has been created by members of the community to commemorate the launch of Lockside, the latest development by national housebuilder Lovell Homes.

‘A Taste of Lockside’ has been lovingly crafted through recipe submissions from schools, organisations near to, or associated with the development, as well as the Lovell Homes team, to showcase the area’s incredible diversity and to share food that reminds local people of home.  Creations include spicy bean burgers, brownies and a classic Sunday roast – perfect plates for bringing loved ones together.

Lockside is a stunning new community in the heart of Walsall that offers 252 homes including two-, three- and four-bedroom properties. All have been designed to cater for local demand including first-time buyers, second steppers and growing families. Prices range from £197,500 to £272,950.

Trish Foster, regional sales director at Lovell Homes, said: “The dinner table is somewhere that households discuss their plans and aspirations, celebrate good times and get through countless milestones in life. Much like the communities Lovell Homes strives to build, food brings people together, allowing conversations to flow and friendships to form. So, what better way to mark many new chapters beginning at Lockside than with a warm welcome and a slice of what makes Walsall special?”

The £44 million scheme is located just one mile from Walsall town centre. The stunning properties have been sympathetically designed to complement their surroundings and to enhance life in an exciting new community, adjacent to an attractive canal.

This is the first development to be realised by Anthem Lovell LLP, a joint venture between Lovell Homes and a subsidiary of housing association whg, Anthem Homes.

Trish added: “Lockside is the result of taking a proactive partnership approach to addressing the rapidly growing demand for houses in Walsall and utilise brownfield sites. Given its connectivity to Birmingham, Lockside is a key example how derelict land has provided an ideal opportunity for regeneration and affordable housing.

“We've been thrilled to see the exceptional demand for the homes at Lockside, in an area that has such character, and we look forward to continuing our work as Anthem Lovell LLP to bring even more high-quality homes to the market in the West Midlands.”

Claire Brabbins-Pretty, sales executive at Lovell Homes, said: “Lockside is a wonderful neighbourhood and demonstrates how, through partnership working, derelict sites can be successfully transformed into desirable places of well designed, low carbon homes at a range of affordability levels. 

“Moving to a new home is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbours and the wider area. We hope the recipes in this book go some way to learning about Walsall’s brilliant community, while providing some delicious meals that will help everyone feel right at home, wherever they are.”

Contributions for the recipe book have been gratefully received from Birchills CofE Community Academy, whg, Elmwood School, Croft Academy, and the Lovell Homes sales team in Walsall. To view and download the recipe book, visit: Lockside Recipes
