A public consultation will be held today (Tuesday) to showcase plans to build 1,000 new homes on open fields off Ashlawn Road.

David Wilson Homes is proposing to build 1,000 homes, a primary school and associated infrastructure on land between Ashlawn Road and the Hillside estate - close to the landmark water tower.

Carrick Casson-Crook, strategic land director for David Wilson Homes, said: “We are currently proposing to build up to a thousand carefully designed, energy efficient new homes, a primary school, public open space and associated infrastructure on land north of Ashlawn Road in Rugby.

“These much needed homes will benefit the local economy through investment into local jobs and by significantly increasing local expenditure. As with all of our developments, we will endeavour to work with the local community and consult local people to further understand any specific concerns and help frame our development proposals as much as possible.

“We are intending to submit a planning application in the summer of this year and as part of the consultation process, local residents are invited to attend an exhibition at Rokeby Primary School on Tuesday 28th January from 3pm to 7.30pm where members of the project team will be present to listen to any views and suggestions for the site.”

The exhibition will be held this evening (Tuesday) at Rokeby Primary School in Anderson Avenue from 3pm to 7.30pm.
