The land is located within the Gaydon and Lighthorne Heath new settlement, where a total of 3,000 homes and extensive community facilities will be delivered.
The plans for the homes at Kingston Fields Farm have been informed by the Gaydon/Lighthorne Heath Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). A mixed-use local centre is proposed in the development parcel adjacent to Terra’s site, so consideration to additional footpaths and cycle linkages has been made.
James O’Shea, Managing Director of Terra said: “The Gaydon and Lighthorne Heath new settlement is in the early stages of development, so we are really pleased to be bringing forward plans for this quality scheme of family houses and maisonettes.
“We have already carried out consultation work and look forward to working alongside Stratford-on-Avon Planning Officers, District and Parish Councillors, and additional consultees while the planning application is being considered.”
Terra’s site lies within the Park Edge character area of the Gaydon/Lighthorne Heath SPD. The 35 houses and maisonettes have been designed in a traditional architectural style, utilising red brick and render. A proportion of the homes will have garages, and a total of 80 parking spaces have been provided for across the scheme. 12 of the proposed dwellings (35%) have been designated for affordable rent and shared ownership.
Terra currently controls 24 sites, with circa 415 acres of residential land that is capable of delivering 2,200 new homes.
