On behalf of Cassidy Group, DPP have secured planning approval residential scheme which is at the heart of a wider regeneration initiative in Rugby.
DPP secured unanimous approval for the 360-apartment scheme at Rugby’s virtual planning committee last week.
Designed by Maber, the four blocks of apartments will provide a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom units serving the build-to-rent market. The site is located directly adjacent to Rugby train station, offering direct links to London Euston in under one hour. As such, DPP built a successful planning case on the proposals meeting a different housing need.
This consent comes within a week of DPP securing consent for 319 build-to-rent apartments in Nottingham.
Commenting on the positive outcome, Director Gareth Hooper said:
“This consent will not only deliver a high-quality build-to-rent product in Rugby, but it also represents the final piece of the regeneration of the former cattle market site, bringing with it a new gateway to the town and an opportunity for wider renewal. The applicant has worked hard with the design team to deliver a viable but high quality product so it is pleasing that was reflected in the comments of the planning committee members.”
