New Homes for Kenilworth Move Forward

 

A busy few days for the Catesby Estates team, with our second resolution to grant in less than a week.

Following a virtual planning committee, we are pleased to announce that Warwick District Council has resolved to grant outline planning permission for 620 new homes on a 76 acre site at Woodside Conference Centre and Crewe Lane, Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

The site forms part of the land east of Kenilworth allocation in the adopted Warwick Local Plan and Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan.

Following extensive pre-application discussions with both the District and Town Council and wide ranging community engagement, the Planning Committee members voted in line with the Planning Officer’s recommendation to approve the application subject to additional mitigation measures being agreed.

The scheme includes 40% affordable housing along with land for a new primary school, allotments, equipped play areas, informal public open space and substantial highway, footpath and cycleway enhancements.

Ed Barrett, Associate Director of Planning for Catesby oversaw the application and was supported by Catesby’s other in-house specialists.
