Persimmon Homes Wessex has lodged plans for the third phase of its Warminster development to deliver a further 193 homes alongside sister company Charles Church.

The application, which now awaits approval from Wiltshire Council, would see construction of a mixture of properties, including 58 designated for a local housing provider.

Persimmon has pledged to invest millions of pounds in the local vicinity, providing land for a new primary school and significant areas of open space – including a riverside park, children’s play areas, sports pitches and changing rooms.

A local centre, allotments, public art, employment land, improvements to public footpaths, new pedestrian and cycle routes, biodiversity enhancements and a dedicated ecology area will also be delivered at Jubilee Gardens.

The housebuilder will also put money towards education provision and local infrastructure.

This latest application follows a site visit from the board of Selwood Housing, a local housing association partner to which Persimmon has already transferred some of its Warminster properties.

Julian Roper, regional managing director at Persimmon Homes, said: “We’re very proud of the progress we’ve made so far at Jubilee Gardens and are delighted to be bringing forward the next stage of our plans as we aim to deliver on our full vision for the development.

“Persimmon is a business that is committed to leaving a positive and lasting legacy in the areas in which we build, from environmentally sustainable homes for the open market and housing associations, to open public spaces and ecological enhancements.

“These principles have been exemplified in our site at Warminster, which is why we’ve been happy to host visits from local parliamentarians, councillors and housing association executives.

“We hope our record of delivery and the quality of our plans will speak for themselves, and we look forward to working with key stakeholders such as Wiltshire Council and Warminster Town Council as we move our application through the planning process.”
