Plans submitted to create new homes and primary school as part of Rugby Borough Council’s Local Plan

Plans have been submitted to create new homes and a primary school as part of Rugby Borough Council’s Local Plan by one of the UK’s leading property development and investment companies.

Warwick-based L&Q Estates, which was previously known as Gallagher Estates until its integration into the award-winning housing association and residential developer L&Q in February, has put forward an outline planning application for up to 210 homes on land at Coventry Road in Cawston in the town.

The proposals include 30 per cent affordable homes along with a two-form entry primary school on the site which is part of a wider allocation for housing in the emerging Rugby Borough Council Local Plan.

Glen Langham, Group Planning Director at L&Q Estates, said the range of homes would be in keeping with the area following its extensive consultation with the local community.

He said: “The application has now been submitted for a combination of housing and a primary school which will ensure the early delivery of the school to meet the education needs of the wider proposed development in South West Rugby.

“We are hoping the application will be approved this Autumn and development work would then start in the middle of next year.

“The submission took into account feedback from local residents following a public exhibition at Cawston Grange Primary School last November.

“This development over 34 acres will include open spaces and is part of the first phase of the South West Rugby Allocation which aims to create over 5,000 homes.

“This is our third planning application in recent times in Rugby and our track record as master developers underlines our ability to deliver high-quality residential developments on time.”

L&Q Estates has also been involved in another site near Cawston at Cawston Meadows where work is underway on delivering 600 homes. They have also been involved in a joint venture with David Wilson Homes (East Midlands) after securing planning permission for 860 new homes including 40 per cent affordable housing, open spaces and a primary school on land off Ashlawn Road. Work is due to start later this year.
