The site, at Walton Road Wellesbourne, has been identified by Stratford-on-Avon District Council as being suitable for self or custom build homes and will comprise of 14, two, three, four and five bedroom customisable carbon-neutral homes.
The application has been submitted by land promoter, Lone Star Land Limited and aims to provide an exemplar scheme in terms of high quality design, excellent environmental performance and achieving a 10% biodiversity net gain on site.
Lone Star has partnered with custom home builder Youngman Lovell to deliver this scheme that responds not only to the housing crisis, but also to the shortage of energy efficient homes buyers can personalise.
Richard Burke, Director of Lone Star said: “In July 2019, Stratford-on-Avon District Council declared a ‘climate emergency’ with an aim of being carbon neutral by 2030. With this and the recent COP26 conference, it is abundantly clear the enormity of the challenge we all face. Stratford-on-Avon’s Self and Custom Build policy can deliver innovative and forward-thinking custom build housing products to meet identified demand using Modern Methods of Construction. Initiatives such as this can only help to change mindsets and Lone Star is delighted to be leading this charge.”
Harry Lovell from Youngman Lovell said: “These striking properties will be sustainably constructed off-site with buyers able to benefit from up to 120 customisation combinations. This results in the provision of a range of two or three bed options for the Barn House and four or five bed options for the Barn House Plus. These homes are extremely energy efficient and will have low running costs for the homeowner, which is a significant advantage in the current climate when the vast majority of homeowners are facing exceptionally rising energy costs.”
Dan Jackson, Director and Co-Owner of Sheldon Bosley Knight, will be marketing this scheme once a planning permission is approved.
Dan said: “This is a highly innovative, quality proposal that will generate significant interest levels. We know there are 228 people registered on the District’s Self and Custom Build list and this is just the start of the depth of demand we foresee for schemes such as this.
