A housing estate which will eventually boast 3,300 new homes has been officially launched in Shropshire.
The estate will be one of the biggest in the UK
The Ironstone scheme will see four neighbourhoods covering 70 hectares (173 acres) in Lawley, Telford.
A quarter of the properties will be so-called affordable housing, split between shared ownership and rented.
The development will also encompass a primary school, shops, offices, bars, restaurants and parkland. Work has already begun on the first 400 homes.
The four neighbourhoods - Newdale Valley, Lawley Village, Lawley Bank and Newdale - will all boast distinctive characteristics, according to the developers.
At the heart of the estate will be Lawley Square, the shopping and transport centre.
Lucy Allwood, from the regeneration agency English Partnerships, said: "In terms of new development, there really isn't anything like Ironstone in or around the region at present.
"This scheme will well and truly put Telford on the architectural map and this sustainable development is sure to benefit the community for a generation to come."
The launch ceremony was attended by dignitaries from Telford & Wrekin Borough Council, English Partnerships and developers Barratt, George Wimpey and Persimmon.
