PLANS for 115 new homes in Allesley in Coventry have been given the green light.
The approval for the properties, on land off Pickford Green Lane, was given at Coventry City Council’s planning committee meeting yesterday and they will now be constructed by Piper Homes.
The proposals – for a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes, including some two bedroom bungalows – received plenty of support and work on the homes will begin in the spring.
A total of 34 per cent of the development is being allocated to open green space and, where possible, existing mature hedgerows and trees are being retained.
The existing pond on site, home to great crested newts, will also be retained and supported by new areas of natural planting.
The area being developed, located off the A45, was allocated for a Sustainable Urban Expansion in 2016.
The site is also likely to benefit from the wider Eastern Green Masterplan which proposes a new village centre within walking distance from the Pickford Green Lane site.
Andrew Browne, head of land and partnerships at Piper Homes, said: “It’s great news we’ve been given the go-ahead to deliver these much-needed new homes for local people.
“Respecting the rural surroundings of the development, our aim is to create a village-like feel – building low-density homes in a variety of styles and including features such as a community orchard with picturesque seating area, a village square and public open space that can be used by residents and neighbours for socialising and exercising.
“At Piper Homes we strongly believe in delivering high quality and well-designed homes that people are proud to call home.
“Now that planning has been granted at Pickford Green Lane, we can’t wait to get started and look forward to welcoming our first homeowners towards the end of the year.”
