Hatters Arms, Warton
Caliber Land has successfully negotiated a deal between the owner of the disused Hatters Arms Pub and North Warwickshire Borough Council, owners of an adjoining disused and landlocked allotment site, in Church Road Warton.
The Caliber team was successful in gaining agreement between both parties to join the two sites together, effectively releasing land for 23 new affordable houses, plus the conversion of the existing pub building into an apartment scheme.
The agreement has created considerable value for the landowner of the disused public house, whilst releasing the potential of the neighbouring landlocked site by joining the two pieces of land together.
The developer also worked with Finance 4 Business, one of Caliber’s group partners, in assisting with providing finance for the planning application and the impending purchase of the site.
This project is the latest example of our ongoing partnership with developer Fitzpatrick Group and registered provider of affordable housing Waterloo Housing Group. Mark Fitzpatrick, of Fitzpatrick Group commented:
“The Church Road development is a brilliant example of urban regeneration and how we can address the housing shortage by finding solutions that transform previously disused land – it is a testament to the proactivity and creativity of the team at Caliber, to bring all of this to fruition.”
North Warwickshire Borough Council is delighted with the outcome and the way in which Caliber made the process as smooth as possible. As a result, Caliber is now engaging with the council on a number of other prospective sites.
Planning permission was granted by committee on 8th July and the developer is looking to start on site in September 2019.
