Work commences on 215 homes in Bishop’s Cleeve

Midlands-based homebuilder Spitfire Homes has commenced work on 215 new homes in Bishop’s Cleeve, Gloucestershire, after securing the site and planning permission earlier this year.

Spitfire acquired the 34-acre site, which includes plans for retail and commercial use alongside the new homes, in partnership with its parent company, IM Properties. Following the deal, Spitfire launched a public consultation on its vision for the development, before securing planning from Tewkesbury Borough Council in July.

The site marks the first opportunity for Spitfire to showcase its newly introduced product range, targeting a broader market. Launched alongside a refreshed brand this Spring, the design-led stylish and energy-efficient properties will enable more prospective buyers to own a Spitfire home.

Construction is now underway on the one- to five-bedroom residences, with the first homes due for completion in Winter 2022. Suitable for young professionals, downsizers, couples and families alike, each property in the collection will combine traditionally-inspired design with the latest interior trends to create homes fit for modern lifestyles.

Ben Leather, Managing Director at Spitfire Homes, said:

“We are particularly excited to start work on our Bishop’s Cleeve development as it will be the introduction of our new house designs. Spitfire’s plans for this development reflect our aspiration to deliver stylish and contemporary residences fit for modern living for more people across the Midlands, in response to ever-increasing demand for our homes.

“This collection will have a broad range which will see it become a vibrant neighbourhood for families, first time buyers and downsizers, all benefiting from its stunning countryside surroundings and strong connectivity.”

The village of Bishop’s Cleeve sits on the outskirts of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while benefitting from easy access to Cheltenham and Gloucester, creating a well-balanced lifestyle proposition for buyers.

Leather added:

“Bishop’s Cleeve fits within a strong pipeline for Spitfire over the coming years, with plans to deliver more than 1000 homes across the Midlands. From Gloucestershire to Northamptonshire, Leicestershire to the Warwickshire and everything in between, we are actively seeking more land opportunities across the region in an effort to increase our reach and offer our homes to a wider market.”

Details of plans and prices for Bishop’s Cleeve will be released in early 2022. Register your interest for more information.
