Proposed Development

Windermere Grange

Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 8JU

Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Stourport-on-Severn

We are working closely with local residents, the local council and key stakeholders to develop plans for an exciting new community in Stourport-on-Severn.

Our proposals, in conjunction with Severn Academies Trust, include 118 homes including 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses on the land formerly occupied by the Stourport Sixth Form College. 25% of homes will be affordable housing. The street scenes have been designed with mature woodland retained to frontage, and mature trees to site boundary. Fitting in with the nature reserves near by. 

Our plans include an area of natural play, which leads into a linear area of open space. A footpath/cycle link runs through this open space from Coniston Crescent to provide links to the former golf course to the north-west and allotments to the north-east. We have created a central landscaped amenity area which will be overlooked by the new dwellings and will create a sense of place.  

Some images are used for illustrative purposes only and include optional upgrades at additional cost. Development managed by Taylor Wimpey West Midlands.

The Master Plan

We want to create a new thriving community in Stourport-on-Severn. Our proposed site Windermere Grange will generate funds for the Severn Academies Trust that will be spent on essential repair work to Stourport High School.

 
The development will provide 118 dwellings on the land formerly occupied by the Stourport Sixth Form College. 25% of homes will be affordable housing. 
 
We will also deliver an area of natural play, which leads into a linear area of open space. A footpath/cycle link runs through this open space from Coniston Crescent to provide links to the former golf course to the north-west and allotments to the north-east. We have created a central landscaped amenity area which will be overlooked by the new dwellings and will create a sense of place.  

Streetscenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby.

About this site features

Connectivity

We understand that a new development will have an impact on the existing community and we have carefully considered this as we have developed our proposals.
Cycling and walking will be encouraged with a network of footpaths and cycleways, these footpath/cycle links will run through open space from Coniston Crescent to provide links to the former golf course to the north-west and allotments to the north-east.
 

Sustainability

Preserving and enhancing local wildlife is a key consideration when we plan and build new developments here at Taylor Wimpey West Midlands.
We plan on including hedgehog highways and bird and bat boxes in this development. With wildlife habitats under pressure and growing evidence of climate change here at Windemere Grange we wanted to demonstrate how a few simple measures can make every householders outside space that little bit more sustainable.

Our Approach

Previous use

Windermere Grange in conjunction with Severn Academies Trust, will be built on the land formerly occupied by the Stourport Sixth Form College. Extending to a gross area of 8.99 acres, the site previously formed sixth form college buildings, tarmac car park, caretakers dwelling and playing fields and is proposed for 118 dwellings.
The school was due to be demolished and rebuilt during the mid 2000’s, however following the cancellation of the Building Schools for the Future programme, this opportunity was lost. 
The Trust has spent a number of years exploring potential funding opportunities for this work; however, the necessary funding is not available. The Trust has agreed with the Secretary of State that the application site can be sold to help fund the repair works to the school. 
The Trust has, therefore, reached an agreement with Taylor Wimpey whereby they will submit a planning application proposing the residential-led redevelopment of the site.  If the planning permission is granted the money received from the sale of the site will be used by the Trust to deliver the works.

Open Space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to green open space is a key consideration.

 

Our plans for Windermere Grange include mature woodland retained to frontage, and mature trees to site boundary. We have included an area of natural play, which leads into a linear area of open space. We have created a central landscaped amenity area which will be overlooked by the new dwellings and will create a sense of place.
