Barton Willmore has secured planning permission for 189 new homes in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The former Cattle Market site, which has been an eyesore for years, will become a vibrant new community, providing one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes and is due to be completed by 2018/19.

The site, which was first closed in 2001 and has remained redundant since with short stints as a car park, is the opening gateway from Stratford train station. Not only will the ‘Arden Quarter’ provide 87 new homes, it will also deliver 102 dependent living with care apartments. The new community will also provide a play area, pocket park, café and retail unit for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.

Work will start in autumn 2016 and is due to be completed by 2018/19. The Cattle Market has been the subject of several planning proposals, none of which then came into fruition, but last July provided a glimmer of hope when Barton Willmore, on behalf of Orbit Homes, unveiled its plans at a public exhibition.

The redevelopment of the Cattle Market site will be carried out alongside separate proposals from Warwickshire County Council and London Midland to re-develop Stratford Train Station.

At the time the plans were announced, Anthony Holt, Head of Development at Orbit Homes, said:

This is a great step forward in bringing to life our vision to transform the former Cattle Market into a vibrant and prosperous place that people are proud to live. We have committed to spending £40million to re-develop the area, and this is a key site in helping us achieve our target of building 12,000 homes by 2020.”
