Catesby Estates plc are promoting 76 acres of land east of Kenilworth,  which has been allocated for new homes in the adopted Warwick District Local Plan (September 2017).

The land is controlled through two separate promotion agreements, the first of which was agreed in April 2014 at which point the land was not identified as an allocation in the emerging Local Plan.

Latest News - 24th August 2018

An outline planning application has been submitted to Warwick District Council for the construction of up to 640 new homes which will set the principles of the development in more detail including site access and housing layout.

The proposals include:

  • Up to 640 new homes in a range of sizes and styles
  • 40% affordable housing
  • Roundabout access onto Glasshouse Lane and a new link road to Crewe Lane
  • Funding for improvements to the local highways network
  • Onsite community facility and allotments
  • Funding of new and extended bus services
  • Retention and protection of Glasshouse Spinney, ancient woodland and Scheduled Ancient Monument (a buried Roman Villa)
  • Significant financial contributions towards education and healthcare improvements
  • New equipped play areas and footpaths and cycle routes

The scheme will be determined by Warwick District Council.  This process will take about 3 months and will involve a range of statutory consultees such as the Town Council, utilities, education providers, highways officers and local healthcare agencies commenting on the proposals and helping ensure that they positively contribute to the local community.

Should the application be approved, we will then work with a range of housebuilders to deliver a range of new homes, with first residents taking occupation in 2020.

The Land

The land under the control of Catesby Estates forms part of a wider area which has been allocated in the local plan for residential development to the east of Kenilworth. This allocation is bounded by Glasshouse Lane to the west and the A46 to the east.

Page 23 of the Warwick Local Plan (you can download a copy here) allocates the following sites east of Kenilworth:

  • H06 East of Kenilworth (Thickthorn) – providing 760 new homes, 8ha of employment land, a local centre and new primary school
  • H40 East of Kenilworth (Crewe Lane, Southcrest Farm and Woodside Training Centre – including the Catesby Estates land) (policy DS12) providing up to 640 new homes, relocation of secondary school; primary school; community facilities
  • H41 East of Warwick Road, Kenilworth providing 100 new homes

The above allocations will also be reflected in the emerging Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan.

Warwick District Council is in the process of creating a Development Brief for east of Kenilworth allocations and this will emerge during 2018.

We will keep this website updated as the proposals progress and we’d welcome your comments; feel free to let us know your thoughts.
