Elaine Brown, head of sales for Bellway South Midlands, said: “Our new development in Hampton Magna will help meet the growing demand for new housing in the Warwick area.
“We’re providing a wide variety of house types from our new artisan range to cater for the needs of local buyers, whether they’re first-time buyers, growing families or downsizers.
“We’re also going to be investing heavily in the local area through the planning agreement for the development, with more than £1 million in financial contributions towards education, health, sports and other facilities nearby.
“This is a sustainable location for new housing, within walking distance of a primary school, medical centre, post office and convenience store. It’s also less than a mile from Warwick Parkway railway station, which has direct trains to Birmingham and London Marylebone.”
Bellway’s financial contributions towards the local area will include £454,370 for Aylesford School in Warwick, £224,000 towards extending the number 16 bus service between Hatton and Kenilworth, £169,174 and £122,674 for indoor sports facilities at local leisure centres, as well as further contributions towards supporting children with special educational needs, bus stops, new highway infrastructure, libraries and outdoor sports.
