Plans submitted for London Road Innovation Scheme
January 19, 2022
Plans have been submitted to Shropshire Council for a unique housing development focusing on delivering sustainable and cutting-edge homes in Shrewsbury.
Cornovii Homes, Shropshire Council’s wholly owned homebuilding company, has submitted plans for an innovative development of 137 homes off London Road in Shrewsbury.
The development would provide a mix of one through to four-bedroom properties, which will be a mix of bungalows, apartments and houses, as well as offering 16 custom-build and 16 self-build plots.
The properties will include 89 low energy homes, 16 carbon neutral properties and all will be constructed to be at least 31 per cent more efficient than your typical new build.
The development would offer a mix of affordable, shared ownership and market sale homes.
Harpreet Rayet, managing director of Cornovii Homes, said: “We are excited to lodge plans for this development. It is the first development of its type in the region and I am confident we have a mix that the market in Shropshire is not currently catering for.
“All the homes will be fully electric and will benefit from increased insulation, sustainable and smart technologies including PV panels, air source heat pumps and smart heating devices and will enjoy at least an EPC “A” rating.
“This application demonstrates that Cornovii Homes is leading the way in delivering innovative, sustainable and mixed tenure housing in Shropshire, helping people to take the first steps on the property ladder.”
It is hoped planning permission will be granted this summer with works to begin in the autumn and the first homeowners moving in in the autumn of 2023.
The development will benefit from green, play space and public open spaces, and is forecast to generate more than£500,000 to be spent on enhancing and supporting local infrastructure.
