Work is set to start on a new housing development in Hampton Magna near Warwick after detailed plans were approved by the local authority.
Bellway has been given the green light by Warwick District Council to build 147 new homes on the 17-acre site off Daly Avenue, on the south-eastern edge of the village.
The development, which will be known as Hampton Trove, will include a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and bungalows, alongside public open space, a children’s play area and allotments. A total of 59 of the houses, along with two of the bungalows, will be provided as affordable housing for local people available through shared ownership or rent.
Elaine Brown, Head of Sales for Bellway South Midlands, said: “Our new development in Hampton Magna will help meet the growing demand for new housing in the Warwick area.
“We’re providing a wide variety of house types from our new artisan range to cater for the needs of local buyers, whether they’re first-time buyers, growing families or downsizers.
“We’re also going to be investing heavily in the local area through the planning agreement for the development, with more than £1 million in financial contributions towards education, health, sports and other facilities nearby.
“This is a sustainable location for new housing, within walking distance of a primary school, medical centre, post office and convenience store. It’s also less than a mile from Warwick Parkway railway station, which has direct trains to Birmingham and London Marylebone.
“We’re already seeing a great deal of interest in this development and I would encourage anyone hoping to find their new home here to visit our website and register to receive the latest updates as they become available.”
Bellway’s financial contributions towards the local area will include £454,370 for Aylesford School in Warwick, £224,000 towards extending the number 16 bus service between Hatton and Kenilworth, £169,174 and £122,674 for indoor sports facilities at local leisure centres, as well as further contributions towards supporting children with special educational needs, bus stops, new highway infrastructure, libraries and outdoor sports.
