DETAILS of where almost 11,000 new homes will be built in Warwick district over the next two decades were unveiled this week.

Warwick District Council's 'preferred options' for housebuilding up to the year 2029 were listed in a report which went before the authority's executive committee at Leamington town hall on Monday night (May 21).

The stated aim of the plan is to identify sites for about 600 newly constructed homes each year, as well as the necessary accompanying services, but to ensure growth is concentrated within and on the edge of existing towns, avoiding towns and villages joining together.

It will go out to public consultation for eight weeks from June 1.

The largest planned developments are on land between Warwick and Leamington, where 1,100 homes are for ‘Myton Garden Suburb’ north of Gallows Hill and west of Europa Way, plus an additional 1,600 homes planned south of Gallows Hill and west of Europa Way.

Land in Blackdown, north of Cubbington, could take 1,170 homes, land north of Milverton 810 and land at Thickthorn near Kenilworth 770.

A further 650 homes are proposed near Whitnash south of Sydenham, 250 at Woodside Farm south of Whitnash, 90 off Fieldgate Lane and Golf Lane in Whitnash, 200 at Red House Farm east of Lillington, 180 at Loes Farm north of Woodloes in Warwick and 200 at Warwick Gates on land between Habury Lane and Heathcote Lane.

There are also 300 new homes proposed on on Warwickshire College’s site in Warwick New Road, Leamington, 80 on the former Ridgeway School site in Warwick, 50 at Warwick District Council's headquarters at Riverside House in Leamington and 50 at Leamington fire station.

A further 100 houses each are proposed for Barford, Bishops Tachbrook, Hampton Magna, Lapworth and Radford Semele, and between 30 and 80 in Cubbington, Hatton and Leek Wootton.
