East Staffordshire Borough Council has approved plans to create a 30 acre development on disused parts of the Pirelli site. St Modwen’s proposals include 300 homes, a hotel, restaurants, public house, offices and commercial units.
In a trading update, St Modwen also reported that its first full year of housebuilding activity had gone well, both for St Modwen Homes and its Persimmon joint venture. The JV is active on six of its eight sites, most recently at the former Vulcan Works site in St Helens.
St Modwen Homes is now live on four sites and is shortly to start works on a further four, including the next phases of homes at Park View, Longbridge and at Locking Parklands, Weston-super-Mare.
