Warwick, CV34 6RG

Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Warwick

Welcome to semi-rural living at Tournament Park.

Situated on the southern fringes of the historic market town of Warwick, Tournament Park will be a stunning new community. 

Our proposal includes a new residential development of up to 67 new homes, and will feature a range of 1- 4 bedroom homes where 40% will be affordable housing, each home will be unique, perfect for families.

Tournament Park is situated within a network of green spaces linked to the wider countryside, yet within easy reach of the town centres of both Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa. Tournament Park is proposed to provide a vibrant, sustainable, healthy and community focussed new neighbourhood suitable for everyone. 

We will be introducing a new range of property types which will ensure that the new development has a high quality finish, which complements the existing attractive residential estate. All homes are proposed to include solar panels and electric vehicle charging points which further reduces our carbon footprint.

To keep up to date with our progress as we apply for planning, please register your interest.

Homes proposed

This application seeks permission for 67 new homes; 27 (40%) of which are provided as affordable housing.
The layout incorporates 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroomed properties, laid out in a manner that responds to the constraints and opportunities identified. The proposed housing density is reflective of the neighbouring settlement and is both realistic and practical to achieve. The mix is policy compliant and in keeping with the character of thelocality. 

Key features of the proposed layout include: 

  • Two primary points of vehicular access from Goggbridge Lane, both in suitable positions.
  • Three secondary points of access that will be utilised only by the dwellings they serve.
  • A noise mitigating fence on the northern and western site boundary, with a detailed planting scheme to ensure visual impact will be softened via climbing plants and a landscaped buffer.
  • A landscaped attenuation basin to create a feature of the open space, and improve outlook for neighbouring plots.
  • The proposed landscaping is intended to maximise opportunities for ecological enhancements. The layout also utilises bird & bat boxes, bee bricks and bug hotels.
  • The development is designed to interface with the existing dwellings on Goggbridge Lane, which contains a mixture of mainly semi-detached and detached dwellings.
  • Further on-plot noise mitigation through varying boundary treatments.
  • Allocated parking, positioned either adjacent to or in-front of plots.

Economic benefits

We want to deliver new homes and facilities that positively integrate with and enhance the local community.  


Taylor Wimpey is committed to the environment, and to ensure all new developments have a vast array of ecological and habitat enhancement features. A preliminary ecological enhancements plan has been proposed and will include: Bee bricks, bird boxes, bat boxes, bug hotels, log piles & hibernaculum.

History of the site

Historically, the site, together with the modern housing opposite, formed part of wider agricultural fields associated with a farm once accessed from Hampton Road to the north. The driveway to the farm was broadly in the position of Morecroft Drive, which is now one of the main spine roads within the Tournament Fields housing development. 

As you may be aware, this site has long been designated in the current Local Plan as an employment site. This dates to Warwick’s previous Local Plan (1996-2011) which showed the site as part of a wider Employment Commitment, adjacent to what was a housing allocation which has now been constructed. The site is now shown as Major Employment Commitment within the most recent Local Plan, adopted in 2017. 


Despite the site being earmarked to become an employment site and form part of the Tournament Fields Business Park, there has been little interest in acquiring the site for this purpose. There are a number of reasons for this which may include the size and shape of the site, where it would be difficult to fit a large commercial storage warehouse. But as an employment allocation, the site could still accommodate a range of industrial, light-industrial or commercial uses. Nevertheless, the character of this locality is, in our view, more residential in nature and would not necessarily be suitable for large HGVs making deliveries, along with staff and visitors moving to and from the site and the noise disruption associated with it.

For these reasons, we consider the site to be far better suited for residential development. The site is within walking distance of the existing office uses at Tournament Fields as well as being within walking distance of several services and facilities, including of shops, Medical Centre, Pharmacy, Nursery, play areas, sports pitches, Secondary School and Sixth Form College.



Before we start designing a new scheme, we complete an assessment of the site and surrounding area as they are now. We record those features that will need to be considered in our design approach.

The main access point to Tournament Park will be via Goggbridge Lane.
