Cornovii Developments Limited’s first housing development given planning permission
Cornovii Developments Limited are “incredibly excited” to be working on their first housing development at Frith Close in Shrewsbury, in partnership with Shropshire Council, after the scheme secured planning permission on Tuesday 18 August 2020.
On the site of a former care home, which has remained vacant for the past three years, the Frith Close development in Crowmoor will offer a vibrant housing scheme to satisfy the needs and aspirations of those wanting to own their own home within walking distance of Shrewsbury town centre.
The new development – consisting of 33 properties – will offer a range of high-quality 2, 3 and 4 bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, and 1 and 2 bedroom bungalows. The first homes will be released and available to reserve from Spring 2021, with the vision for buyers to move in from August 2021. Homes on the development will start from £180,000.
Cornovii Developments Limited, the Shropshire Council-owned housing firm, will also work with the local community and provide several financial contributions for amenities as part of the proposed development to fully regenerate the area.
Harpreet Rayet, Shropshire Council’s lead director of development, commented on the development:
“We are incredibly excited to start work on the Frith Close development later this year. The new development will regenerate a key site in Crowmoor and provide much needed starter homes and family housing. We are committed to addressing the housing shortage in the county by building homes that people want to live in – and from which they can enjoy the many benefits of life in Shropshire.”
Councillor Mark Jones, Chair of the Housing Supervisory Board, said:
“We are delighted to be working with Cornovii Developments Limited. The new development will help fulfil local housing needs and deliver much-needed family homes in Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury is a sought-after location in the county, with great schools and excellent commuter links. The new housing development will allow families and couples to enjoy everything that Shrewsbury has to offer, as well as supporting local contractors during a difficult time.”
