One of the leading providers in build-to-rent housing across the UK has started work to bring 90 new homes in Wolvey, Warwickshire.
The development, named Kingsmaker View, will deliver a total of 90 new homes on Wolvey Campus, Rugby, which will incorporate a mix of private rental, open market sale properties and homes provided by Midlands largest housing association. Simple Life Homes, with thousands of properties across the UK, will launch 32 two to four bedroom homes to provide high-quality living environments for families in the area.
Kingmakers View will include landscaping, an open space with children’s play area and storm water attenuation areas. Residents will also benefit from great transport links to Coventry, Nuneaton and Leicester.
The local community is not only set to gain much needed new housing, but will also benefit
from a contribution of over £145,000, comprising:
• £2,462 towards education and libraries;
• £45,568 for healthcare;
• £22,974 for transport, including road safety, sustainable travel, bus stop contributions
and public rights of way improvements;
• and £74,365 towards public open spaces and play areas including improvements to
Wolvey Rush Pasture Nature Wetland Reserve and sports provision.
The community’s natural world will also benefit with biodiversity improvements, offsetting any
losses elsewhere, which will be provided on-site rather than as a contribution. The site is situated at the edge of the village of Wolvey, which is located to the south of Hinckley, east of Bedworth and southeast of Nuneaton. Excellent transport links are available with Junction 2 of the M6 located only five miles away to the south of the site and Junction 1 of the M69 located around two miles to the north, providing access to the wider national motorway network. Bedworth station is around 4.5 miles to the west, providing regular rail services to Coventry via the West Coast Main Line.
Kate Tuckey, Development Director at Simple Life Homes said: “We’re delighted to be working
alongside Countryside to bring yet another very desirable development to a new location for
Simple Life Homes. With some existing sites closer to Coventry and other surrounding
areas, which have experienced huge demand, we’re pleased to be in a position to provide a
better quality, pet friendly, rental home for local families, teamed with a professional landlord
Keep an eye out, Kingsmaker View is set to launch summer 2023.
