Together with the landowners, who included the King Henry VIII Trust, Catesby Estates worked to discharge pre-commencement planning conditions, and agree reserved matters for the delivery of onsite road and green infrastructure, including detailed designs for highway improvements on Europa Way.
Reserved Matters was granted in 2017 for the site-wide infrastructure, with the public open space work commencing early 2018. Four housing parcels were provided, and housebuilders started on site early 2019, with first residents taking occupation that autumn.
First onsite was Avant Homes (13.4 acres - up to 200 new homes), followed by Miller Homes (8.7 acres - up to 134 new homes) and then Bovis Homes (8.9 acres - up to 135 new homes). The final land parcel was sold to Redrow in February 2020 (17.6 acres - up to 266 new homes).
As part of the site early infrastructure works, Catesby delivered Myton Green Park which was adopted by Warwick District Council in December 2020. This extensive public open space and green infrastructure consists of six equipped play areas including a multi-use games pitch with five-aside football and basketball court, a 4,500 metre network of new footpaths and cycleways along with the planting of more than 250 specimen trees.
In addition, a further 17.5 acres of land was gifted to Warwickshire County Council for the provision of education facilities.
The early installation of infrastructure helped to maximise value for the landowners, and resulted in housebuilders bringing forward the construction of new homes. As a result, residents benefitted from earlier occupation dates and more established recreational and wildlife areas.
