Midlands neighbourhood takes major step forward with planning permission granted for new homes
Planning permission has been granted for Spitfire Homes to deliver a stylish collection of 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. 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. Within each property, layouts will be carefully considered and appointed with a stylish internal specification.
Located in the sought-after village of Wolston, Rosedale will feature Spitfire Homes’ signature design-led properties, bringing modern, quality features to suit a variety of lifestyles aimed at first-time buyers, individuals, couples, families and downsizers alike.
The 14 properties due to be delivered as part of the First Homes scheme will be available exclusively for first-time buyers at a reduced rate of the market value. These homes will be the first of their kind delivered by Spitfire marking part of an ongoing commitment to enable a range of buyers to get on the property ladder.
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.
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.”
To ensure that the local community continues to have access to allotments, Spitfire has replanned the existing allotments on previously underutilised land to the north. In addition, we are constructing a new management building and trading shed on site for the enjoyment of allotment holders, so the overall facilities will be improved.
Located midway between Rugby and Coventry, Wolston has strong 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.
