The Rugby Radio Station site will undergo extensive regeneration over a 20-year phased plan, to include homes, jobs and commercial space, schools, green space and a whole series of supportive infrastructure. The site was a large radio transmission facility in Hillmorton near Rugby.

“Rugby Radio Station is a strategic site to the south east of Rugby which is allocated in the Rugby Local Plan and is set to deliver in excess of 6,000 dwellings, along with a range of other uses including a secondary school, three primary schools, public open space, community uses, shops, restaurants and cafes, leisure use and commercial and employment floorspace.”

Rugby Borough Council has given the green light for the development of 352 homes on the site across three tenures – 40% affordable housing, a similar number of Build to Rent homes and the remaining homes for sale.

“This site is part of the second phase, and we worked closely with Countryside, the council and the site promoter, Urban & Civic, to ensure the proposal met the complex provisions of the site-wide outline permission.”

Planning proposals were submitted to Rugby Borough Council by Harris Lamb’s planning consultancy, on behalf of Countryside Properties for the development of homes on land off Crick Road. To deliver the scheme, Countryside Properties is working in partnership with Midland Heart and Sigma.

Aiming to deliver its first homes by early next year, groundwork is expected to start as soon as possible.

“We are delighted that this scheme has been granted approval. The completed development will provide high quality housing across all three tenures to meet the ever-increasing demand for new homes throughout the region.”
