Residential Development

Show on Google Map

Catesby Estates has been promoting land at Red House Farm, Lillington, Royal Leamington Spa, for residential development through the Local Plan  process. 

The Covid pandemic has shone a bright light on the housing crisis with many families squeezed into inadequate homes, and young people with no option but to live with their families.  It is clear that adequate housing remains unaffordable to many.

Red House Farm lies to the north west of Royal Leamington Spa, within the Leamington Lillington District Ward. The site can be directly accessed by connecting to the existing secondary road network to the north of the site.  This in turn connects to the primary road network (A452, A445, A46 and the M40), providing easy access to wider area.

The site has been identified as potentially suitable for release from the Green Belt to meet local housing need.

Development at Red House Farm can offer significant public benefits to existing residents of Lillington over and above new homes.

The site can deliver not only up to 300 new homes, with 40% affordable housing  provision including First Homes and Shared Ownership as well as more traditional social rented options. But the site would also provide significant public open space, including a 10.15 ha / 25.08 acre extension to Newbold Comyn Country Park increasing the opportunities for residents to access and enjoy this popular leisure facility, as well as providing key pedestrian and cycling links to the wider area. 

Red House Farm would also include a community hub which could include a hall, flexible office facilities or other community benefits as appropriate.

Our strong working relationship with Warwick District Council can be evidenced at our Myton Green site , located off Europa Way, Warwick where 735 homes are being delivered. 

Our early investment in infrastructure means residents are benefitting from earlier occupation dates and more established recreational and wildlife areas, including the highly regarded Myton Green Park, consisting of over 25 acres of public open space and green infrastructure with 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.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO DELIVER MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Roya Leamington Spa is a desirable, but expensive place to live with many first time buyers struggling to take their first steps on the housing ladder, and consequently having to relocate out of the town and move away from their families.

Properties in Royal Leamington Spa had an overall average price of £ £380,443 (Rightmove) over the last year, compared to the UK average of £ £250,341 (Land Registry).  This site will provide 40% affordable housing for those looking to get on the housing ladder, including First Time Homes and Shared Ownership as well as more traditional social rented options.

MEETING THE CHALLENGE OF CLIMATE CHANGE – DELIVERING ENERGY EFFICIENT NEW HOMES

Homes both new and existing account for 20% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK.  To help reduce carbon emissions and keep down household energy costs, the new homes built will meet the latest energy efficiency standards and be heated by cleaner energy sources.

In this regard the new homes to be developed will:

  • Reduce carbon emissions by up to 31% (compared to homes built to current energy efficiency requirements) in accordance with new Building Regulations to be introduced in 2020, increasing to 75-80% reduction by 2025 once the Future Homes Standard is fully introduced by the Government
  • New homes will feature technology including photovoltaic (solar) panels, heat pumps, triple glazing and standards for walls, floors and roofs that significantly limit any heat loss
  • Provision of electric vehicle charging points in accordance with the adopted Parking Standards SPD
  • Infrastructure to enable homes to connect to high quality and fast broadband services for leisure and homeworking
