Living Space Housing has secured a 1.13Ha (2.8-acre) site on the outskirts of the North Warwickshire town of Nuneaton.
Situated off Plough Hill Road, the parcel of land could deliver 35 affordable homes for local people.
The site neighbours Countryside Properties PLC’s Baberton Grange development, which is currently under construction.
The vision for Living Space’s land is to create 35 affordable dwellings to deliver the final phase of the Plough Hill Road residential development.
Living Space will shortly be undertaking pre-application consultation with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and key stakeholders, prior to submitting a planning application in 2022.
Chris Loizou, Land and Partnerships director for Living Space Housing, said: “This site presents a great opportunity to provide much-needed affordable homes in the semi-rural outskirts of Nuneaton.
“Nearby countryside walks are complemented by outstanding schooling and a range of local and town centre amenities. Nuneaton train station is also only three miles away, providing frequent services to Birmingham city centre and beyond.
“We are already well underway with the groundworks and community facilities at the 72-acre Hawkesbury Canal Village development, which is also within the Borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth.
“We look forward to engaging with stakeholders, Officers and Councillors to work collaboratively to bring forward the development plans for this site next year.”
