Planning permission granted in Midlands neighbourhood

Planning permission has been granted for Spitfire Homes to deliver 48 new homes in Wolston, Warwickshire.

Spitfire Homes acquired the 5.44 acre site in Wolston to create 34 two- to four-bedroom homes, plus 14 properties which will be part of the Government’s First Homes scheme – which will enable buyers to purchase a home for 30% to 50% less than its market value.

Named Rosedale, these traditionally-inspired homes will feature a varied palette of external materials comprising a mixture of red brick and chalky white render, paired with a combination of red and grey roof tiles.

Ben Leather, managing director at Spitfire Homes, said: “Wolston is a desirable village location with a growing requirement for new homes – the commuter links and countryside setting make it the ideal location for these homes to meet this rising demand for high-quality, future-proofed homes designed to suit modern lifestyles.

“The homes at Rosedale are a further example of Spitfire’s investment into the Midlands region alongside following recent collections in Royal Leamington Spa, Northampton, and Daventry.

“We look forward to working with the Parish to deliver both the new homes and the allotments for the local community, ensuring these properties support our ongoing commitment to providing energy-efficient and sustainable homes.”

The energy-efficient new homes will all have heating and hot water supplied courtesy of air-source heat pumps and will feature electric car charging points as standard.

This aligns with the priorities of buyers and Spitfire’s commitment to its Sustainable Futures strategy, which outlines a number of sustainability targets to be achieved by the homebuilder by 2030.

Located midway between Rugby and Coventry, Wolston has commuter links to nearby cities and towns and has seen rising demand for homes in the area.

Spitfire Homes will also be working with the Parish Council and Allotment Association as part of the new development to enhance the community’s allotment used by residents in the area, complete with a management building adjacent to the site.
