Develop Warwickshire partners have marked the opening of the first showhomes at Brookmill Meadows in Warton, Warwickshire.

Vistry Group, the UK’s leading provider of affordable mixed-tenure homes, was joined by joint venture partners, Warwickshire Property & Development Group (WPDG) and Warwickshire County Council to celebrate the opening of the first showhomes.

The two showhomes provide the first opportunity for potential homeowners to look around two of the 71 homes at this development which comprises two-, three-, and four-bedroom houses and bungalows.

Over the next 30 years, Develop Warwickshire, the joint venture between Vistry North West Midlands, Warwickshire Property and Development Group (WPDG) and Warwickshire County Council, will build over 1,800 much-needed new homes in Warwickshire, with three sites, including Warton, currently earmarked for development.

Brookmill Meadows is prioritising affordable homes, with 40 percent designated as affordable housing, evenly split between shared ownership and affordable rent options.

Each home will be constructed using modern methods of construction, incorporating features such as air source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points. Additionally, the development will boast energy-efficient design elements, incorporate sustainable urban drainage systems and will include beautifully landscaped green open space.
