Prominent Coventry site sold to housebuilder

Persimmon Homes has purchased a parcel of land from Clowes Developments with planning consent for residential development.

Planning consent has been granted by the site’s local authority, Coventry City Council, with permission for 223 residential dwellings ranging in size from two to four-bedroom homes.

There will also be 25% affordable housing made available.

While the Burnaby Road site in Coventry is facing major redevelopment, the site has a famous history as the property is, allegedly, where the first ever Aston Martin was manufactured.

Paul Shanley, consultant at Clowes Developments, said: “We are excited to see how the development will progress and we wish Persimmon Homes all the best in bringing the site back to life with their comprehensive residential offering.”

Neil Williams, managing director at Persimmon Homes Central, added: “This is a hugely exciting development which will provide 223 quality homes helping address the need for local housing in Coventry whilst at the same time making important contributions to local services.

“This is a continuation and additional phase of our current and successful Whitmore Place development. Demolition is due to start this August and be completed by late summer with the development commencing soon after and early occupation planned for later in 2023.”
