Catesby Estates are pleased to announce the sale of a 76 acre residential land site in Kenilworth, Warwickshire to a newly formed joint venture between Vistry and Milverton Homes who will be collaborating to deliver new homes on the site (August 2021).

Catesby has worked closely over a four year period with both the District and Town Councils, and carried out extensive wide ranging community engagement to bring this site forward.  At a virtual Planning Committee, members voted in line with the Planning Officer’s recommendation for approval subject to additional highways mitigation measures being agreed.

The site at Woodside Conference Centre and Crewe Lane forms part of the land east of Kenilworth, allocated in the adopted Warwick Local Plan and Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan. 

The scheme for 620 homes, 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.

Resolution To Grant

Following a virtual planning committee (17th June 2020), we are pleased to announce that Warwick District Council has resolved to grant outline planning permission for 620 new build homes and a range of community benefits at Woodside Conference Centre and Crewe Lane, Kenilworth.

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.

Energy Efficient, Low Carbon 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 to the east of Kenilworth 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.
  • This means the 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.

The Land

The Woodside Conference Centre and Crewe Lane site forms part of the land east of Kenilworth allocated in the adopted Warwick Local Plan and Kenilworth Neighbourhood Plan for the delivery of a high quality new community comprising approximately 1,400 new homes together with supporting infrastructure. This allocation is bounded by Glasshouse Lane to the west and the A46 to the east.

  • H06 East of Kenilworth (Thickthorn) – providing 760 new homes, 8ha of employment land, a local centre and new primary school
