We are excited to announce that Lockley Homes have submitted an application for 14 high-quality homes in Callow End, Worcestershire. The site already benefits from an allocation for 15 dwellings in the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP), and will provide the perfect backdrop for an exclusive residential development. The site comprises the vacant grounds of the ruined Wheatfield Court, a Georgian period property that was destroyed by fire in 2004 after it was converted into flats.
Our proposal, designed by A2 Architecture, will replace this derelict site with a stunning development in a gateway location to the village, and bring the site back into economic use. It will also help the Malvern Hills District Council deliver a key housing site in line with the SWDP village allocation and development strategy. Lockley Homes Land Director, Ian O’Gorman said “We are looking forward to progressing this detailed planning application with Malvern Hills District Council, and expect to receive planning permission by Christmas”.
The site lies approximately 600m north of the village centre, which benefits from a number of services that support its residents including a village store, village hall, playing fields, a primary school, a number of inns and pubs and the beautiful Stanbrook Abbey - a grade II listed and 16th century former monastery.
Callow End itself is less than 5km south of Worcester City, and with its close proximity to Malvern via the A449 this is an ideal location for residents commuting to both Worcester and Malvern whilst enjoying the surrounding Worcestershire countryside.
