LIVING Space Housing has submitted a Full Planning Application to Coventry City Council for 57 new homes on a 1.35Ha (3.3-acre) vacant site located off Meadow Road in the Holbrooks area of Coventry.
The proposal is for a mixed-tenure housing solution, to meet local needs.
The rear of the scheme borders Abbey Fields Wetlands, which the new development will connect to and overlook. Keresley Jubilee Wood – created as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations – is also nearby.
Living Space’s proposals focus on creating connectivity to these existing green community spaces.
The Meadow Road site is within easy reach of the Ofsted Outstanding-Rated President Kennedy School, a convenience store, food outlets and local bus stops, with a total of six bus services passing the site entrance. Coventry Train Station is four miles away, with a bus stop offering a direct regular service located on Nunts Lane, which adjoins the proposed development.
Chris Loizou, land and partnerships director for Living Space Housing said: “This scheme is important to enhance the provision of varying types of affordable housing in north-west Coventry.
“There is a chronic shortage of the type of terrace and semi-detached homes that we are proposing, especially purposed design accommodation, in line with the requirements of Homes England.
“Our plans also feature the latest standards of eco-efficient insulation to minimise household energy consumption.
The development design is tenure-blind, with local materials proposed to replicate nearby traditional dwellings.
A contrast of varying red bricks with render features and grey roof tiles defines the design principles.
The house designs are all two storeys high, as is the plan for the low-rise block of apartments.
All houses will have a private secure garden, and a total of 112 parking spaces have been provided for across the scheme, to cater for residents and visitor parking.
