Housebuilder gets approval for new homes in Binley

A South Midlands housebuilder has welcomed the decision by Coventry City Council’s planning committee, to grant permission for a housing development on Skipworth Road in the village of Binley.

Persimmon Homes South Midlands plan to invest £3.5 million in the construction of 41 new homes on the 2.4 acre parcel of undeveloped land 3.5 miles from Coventry city centre.

Speaking of the new development, Richard Oldroyd, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said:

“We are committed to building high quality homes in sought after locations that are within easy reach of local amenities and transport links.

“Our plans for Binley Place include a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes to suit a range of buyers, from those looking to get on the property ladder for the first time to families seeking more space as they grow.”

In addition to the new homes Persimmon Homes has made a commitment to provide funding of over £200,000 for community facilities including education and off-site open space.

Construction at the site is scheduled to commence in May 2014 with the first properties expected to be occupied by November 2014.
