Construction underway at 95-home development in Coventry

Housebuilder Keepmoat has started construction on a new housing development, Exhall Meadow, at Wilson’s Lane near Coventry.

The plan is to build 95 homes on the land, with a mixture for private market sale and plots that will be sold for affordable housing in partnership with Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council.

Under section 106, the housebuilder has agreed to provide funding for local parks, as well as sports and recreation facilities.

Funding contributions will also be made to the County Council to improve local schools and deliver new cycleways and highway improvements.

Another development at Exhall Gardens, situated on School Lane, is currently under construction, delivering 125 new homes, therefore these new plans will further expand upon this housing development.

Amanda Bishop, regional managing director at Keepmoat, said: ‘’After the success of our Exhall Gardens development, we’re excited to be moving forward with the planning approval for this second phase which will deliver a development with a further 95 much-needed new homes for families and residents to build a life in this fantastic area.

“This housing project will deliver brand new homes and maisonettes to the local community, plus significant financial contributions to improve local services and facilities. Keepmoat will regenerate the land, where a portion was previously used as storage to create a new, thriving community. A quarter of the development will be available as much-needed affordable housing, while the remaining plots in the scheme will deliver new homes including two-, three- and four-bedroom properties as well as one-bedroom apartments. The first homes are expected to be complete in Spring 2024.”

Cllr Richard Smith Cabinet member for Planning and Regulation at Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council added: “I am delighted to see the Exhall Meadows Development get underway. This Keepmoat brownfield regeneration scheme will deliver much-needed affordable homes that will help our young families to get onto the housing ladder and will contribute important funding, supporting improvements in essential local infrastructure, making Bedworth a great place to live. I look forward to seeing the completion of the first new homes in the coming months.”
