Richborough Estates wins approval for housing site at appeal

National land promoter Richborough Estates has won planning approval for a 147-unit housing development at Hampton Magna in Warwickshire following an appeal.

The site, off Lloyd Close, is made up of two parcels of land which lie adjacent to existing housing and Budbrooke Primary School.

The plans for 147 homes had been refused in June 2018 by a delegated committee at Warwick District Council.

Richborough then brought the matter to appeal through the appeals process and won planning approval for the site.

An overarching vision for the land will bring forward up to 40% affordable housing plus a children’s play area and significant areas of open space.

The site was allocated for homes in the Warwick District Local Plan, adopted in September 2017.

The land benefits from its proximity to local transport networks, most notably Warwick Parkway station and the A46 dual carriageway.

It also benefits from a superb local location in relation to a range of facilities and the location is also just two miles from the centre of Warwick with its shops, amenities and visitor attractions.

Martyn Grimes at Richborough Estates, said: “New homes and families moving into the area will help support existing facilities such as the local primary school and shops which are the lifeblood of a semi-rural community such as this.

“The new housing will also bring with it a new play area and significant new areas of accessible green space. The delivery of these new houses, 40% of which will be affordable, will ensure that Hampton Magna continues to thrive while retaining the key characteristics and charm of this quintessentially English semi-rural village community.”
