Platform Housing Group have announced plans to demolish a former pub and develop new homes on the site.

The firm, who’re investing over £250m over the coming years into delivering new homes, have highlighted the site in Upton Snodsbury – Worcestershire – for 14 new affordable homes including four flats, six two-bedroom homes and three four-bedroom homes.

The former Coventry Arms would be demolished within the plans.

A spokesperson for Platform Housing Group said: “The site, being previously developed and reasonably adjacent to the village settlement boundary is locationally sustainable. The pub was commercially unviable and has been closed for some time, having had no interest from pub operators. The redevelopment would improve it aesthetically and provide considerable benefits through the provision of social housing.”

Platform Housing Group consists of several major housing developers and they’ll be discussing their 2023 strategic plan to invest £250m creating 1,600 new homes at our Lincolnshire Development Plans Event in January. Click here for details >
