Green light for 185 new homes in Longbridge

16 August 2017

Award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, has been given the green light for 185 new homes in the second phase of its Cofton Grange development in Cofton Hackett, near Longbridge.

The new homes, due to be launched this autumn, follow the sell-out success of the first phase of homes for Cofton Grange and will include a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties with a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced designs.

Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “We’re thrilled to have received planning permission at Cofton Grange. Our first phase proved incredibly popular with all 14 properties reserved from plan in just two months and there is currently a waiting list of over 900 people for the new homes. As such, we’re gearing up to start groundwork on site and expect to release the first homes for sale in the next coming months.

“Less than two miles from Lickey Hills Country Park and just a short distance from Longbridge town centre, Cofton Hackett is fast becoming a top choice for new homeowners and we’ve worked closely with our architects, RPS, to create an attractive and sustainable environment for our homeowners.”

Designed according to St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height each property will benefit from large windows and higher than average ceilings throughout to create bright open living spaces.

In addition to the new homes, the second phase will deliver a large quantity of open space, including the planting of hedgerows, shrubs and trees around the development, as well as a new public footpath and cycle routes.
