A housebuilder has had two separate schemes approved in the East Midlands, which in total will deliver 265 homes.

Lovell Partnerships has been granted planning permission for 190 homes in Burton upon Trent by East Staffordshire Borough Council, which form part of the Branston Locks scheme.

More widely, the scheme will see the regeneration of 400 acres of land to the south west of Burton upon Trent and the building of 2,500 new homes.

North Northamptonshire Council has approved 75 homes at Priors Hall Park on the outskirts of Corby. Priors Hall is an urban extension that intends to deliver just under 3,000 homes, as well as 25.5 acres of recreation space, a footpath, a cycle network, nine acres of employment space, two schools and two retail areas.

The 75 homes will be a mix of open market and shared ownership properties.

Chris Timmins, area director, East Midlands, at Lovell Partnerships, said the approvals will see "two sustainable communities"  delivered.

“Branston Locks is a key regeneration site in East Staffordshire, and we’re thrilled to be playing our part on one of the UK’s first large urban extensions as well as a second substantial urban extension in Priors Hall Park, Corby, reflecting our status as a major partnerships developer."
