A £17 million housing development has been revealed for a Northamptonshire village by one of the country’s largest building firms.

Charles Church Midlands says it wants to build 125 new homes on a swathe of green land at Towcester Road, Old Stratford after finalising a land deal.

The planning permission is already in place for the Roman Court development and prospective buyers could be moving into the properties by the end of the year.

Managing director for the firm, Richard Oldroyd, said: “Roman Court will be an exciting development that will not only provide much-needed new homes but will also breathe economic life into the area and lay the foundations for a thriving new community.

“Our plans include three, four and five bedroom homes to suit a range of buyers, from those looking to get on the property ladder for the first time to families seeking more space as they grow.”

The development aims to “transform an existing green field site” and will see money invested in public open space and play areas to the village, according to the developers.

It also claims it will make contributions to education, primary care and the village library.

Richard added: “Planning consent is already in place so we aim to start work on site immediately and anticipate the first homes will be released for sale later in the year.”
