Our vision


Much needed homes within a family friendly and inclusive neighbourhood

First time buyers, growing families, and elderly residents looking to downsize will all find their ideal home within our plans at the Burton Road development. The scheme has been designed to deliver a range of high-quality homes suitable for every stage of life.    

Our proposals will help alleviate the local shortage of new homes, by building up to 340 new properties

A range of high-quality homes, varying from 1–5-bedroom properties, ideal for first time buyers, growing families looking for more space, or those looking to downsize.

35% of the new homes on offer will be affordable.

An all-encompassing approach of providing homes for every stage of life. All dwellings will be built to meet adaptable and accessible standards.

An attractive design which respects and enhances the surrounding landscape

This spacious new neighbourhood has been designed to create a peaceful environment for residents, which promotes healthy living and wellbeing.

At its heart, we envisage a beautiful neighbourhood of modern and high-quality homes, set within landscaped grounds and extensive open spaces.

Key features include:

New accessible green space and child play areas will act as a focal point of the new neighbourhood.

Landscaped streets will run through the site, planted with flower beds, new trees, and shrubbery.

A network of new footpaths and cycle paths will criss-cross the neighbourhood, opening up the landscape to the local community and improving connectivity with the existing canal trail.

Retain and enhance existing trees and hedgerows within the former estate gardens of Helme Lodge.

Respecting local heritage

We have taken extra care to ensure that the Grade II listed Helme Lodge and its estate gardens, are respected, protected and enhanced by the proposed development. 

The garden space will be carefully maintained to preserve the rich natural environment, whilst green open space to the south and west of the site will further boost biodiversity and wildlife.

A sustainable neighbourhood

Carbon emission reduction by designing buildings to meet Future Homes Standard.

Boosting local economic growth with new jobs

Alongside new homes and outdoor amenity space, the proposed development would deliver new commercial and employment space, which in turn would deliver an economic boost to the area and create hundreds of new jobs for local people.

Our plans will deliver:
