Almost 200 homes are one step closer to construction after design and layout plans were submitted.

Persimmon Homes Wessex, the builders behind Warminster’s Jubilee Gardens, has submitted proposals to Wiltshire Council for the third phase of its 1,000-home scheme.

The development would continue the expansion of the linear park, offering a mix of two, three and four bed properties.

If the plans are approved, the developer says the wider scheme will invest “millions of pounds” in the local neighbourhood, providing a “sustainable community for local people”.

It said its plans included land for a new primary school, significant areas of open space including a riverside park, equipped children’s play areas, two areas of sports pitches and associated changing rooms.

Outline planning permission has been granted for up to 1,000 homes on the site in 2020 and this third phase of construction would cover land north of Victoria Road and west of Bath Road.

The proposed properties will have allocated on-site parking, and the development would complete the entire length of the central pillar road, linking the previously approved sections of the two new intersections.

Key architectural features of the properties would include “harmonious, locally distinctive palette with simple forms and details”.

Julian Roper, regional managing director of Persimmon Homes, said: “We hope that our delivery results and the quality of our plans will speak for themselves.

“We look forward to working with key stakeholders such as Wiltshire Council and Warminster Borough Council as we take our application through the planning process.”
