Council thumbs up for 19 new homes on county development

Evesham Editorial 16th May, 2023   0

COUNCIL chiefs have given the green light to 19 new homes on the Whittington Walk development on the edge of Worcester.

The new homes will make up part of the third phase of the wider Whittington Walk scheme, which – upon completion – will bring up to 300 homes to the city.

It will provide a mix of two to four bedroom properties and Persimmon Homes claim it is carefully planned to deliver a ‘sustainable community’.

Of the 19 homes, five will be transferred to a housing association partner for social rent, with two of the homes available through the Government-backed First Homes scheme, allowing localbuyers to purchase a home at Whittington Walk at a 30% discount.

Russell Griffin, managing director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands paid tribute to Wychavon District Council for its support.

“Not only will this phase deliver 19 quality new homes, it will also create local jobs as part of the construction, generating an investment in the local economy,” he said.

“We’ll continue to work in partnership with the council and other stakeholders to ensure our developments deliver real benefits for the communities they are based in.”
