The site was granted its initial Outline Planning Permission in 2014, but a further application was needed to ensure the site was developable with a further Outline Planning Permission granted in 2015.

Due to the size and complexity of the site, Catesby Estates were appointed to deal with the Reserved Matters Application, deliver the site infrastructure, the dualling of Europa Way and the public open space works which were required to bring forward residential development on the site.

Reserved Matters was granted in 2017 for the site-wide infrastructure and public open space works.  Work started in early 2018 and finished late summer 2020.

Housebuilders started on site early 2019 with first residents taking occupation in the autumn.  There are currently circa 45 plots sold, and by the end of 2020, 80 homes are expected to be occupied. 

First onsite was Avant Homes (13.4 acres/up to 200 new homes), followed by Miller Homes (8.7 acres/up to 134 new homes) and then Bovis Homes (8.9 acres/up to 135 new homes).  The final land parcel was sold to Redrow in February 2020 (17.6 acres/up to 266 new homes).

The extensive public open space, will be open to local residents following adoption by Warwick District Council which is expected to take place October 2020.
