Housebuilder gets permission to press ahead with Tewkesbury development

Persimmon Homes

Housebuilder Persimmon is to press ahead with a development in Tewkesbury after landing planning permission for 114 new homes.

The homes are being built on land in Fiddington after planning approval was unanimously granted for the site by Tewkesbury Borough Council.

The land known as ‘Fiddington Fields Phase 1’ is located to the east of Tewkesbury and south of the residential and industrial development of Northway and Ashchurch.

Persimmon’s initial phase will deliver a mix of apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached new homes, including 23 one-bedroom units, 32 two-bedroom units, 44 three-bedroom units and 15 four-bedroom units.

The site’s masterplan includes a network of open spaces and green corridors through the new development, linking existing features and surrounding areas of open space and the countryside.

A number of landscape features will be included in the development such as hedgerows, trees, grassland, proposed street, sports pitches, natural play areas, community allotments and footpath and cycle ways.

As part of the scheme, Persimmon will also build and transfer 39 homes to a local housing association partner.

Persimmon’s managing director for Severn Valley, Paul Moody, said:  “This is welcome news and I’d like to thank Tewkesbury Borough Council for its unanimous approval of our site in Fiddington.

“This scheme will deliver a range of quality new homes designed for local families and first-time buyers who otherwise might struggle to get onto the housing ladder in Tewksbury.

“The design seeks to build upon the site’s assets, landscape character and local context and respond to the issues of ecology, access, landscape and surface water management in an integrated way.”
