Developer gets green light for affordable homes on airfield site

Airfield House landscape plan

Vistry Group has been granted approval to construct 60 affordable homes on the last parcel of Marston Airfield.

The Airfield House project will repurpose the remaining section of the former RAF Long Marston airfield, blending rural landscapes with modern living.

Situated close to Stratford-upon-Avon, the development will offer a mix of affordable rental, social rental, and shared ownership homes.

Adam Sharpe, managing director for Vistry South West Midlands, said: “We are excited to have secured planning permission for Airfield House and to be working with Greensquare Accord on this exciting new development. There is a significant need for new, high-quality, affordable housing in this part of the Warwickshire and this is a major step forward in meeting that demand. We know that affordable buyers will relish the opportunity to live in modern family homes and to be part of a vibrant and well-connected new community here in Warwickshire.”

Under section 106, Vistry will also invest more than £600k towards enhancing local services, including education, healthcare, infrastructure, and law enforcement.

Teaming up with GreenSquareAccord, one of England’s major providers of social housing and care, Vistry aims to address the pressing need for affordable housing in the region.

Mike Nolan, head of development at GreenSquareAccord said: “We are proud to be delivering 60 new affordable homes for people and families in Warwickshire as part of the Long Marston Garden Village development. By providing homes for affordable and social rent alongside homes available under shared ownership scheme we are helping to meet a variety of local housing need in part of Warwickshire where it is highly desirable to live.”
