View looking east from the new roundabout on the A429 Ettington Road. The work on the new roundabout started on 22nd. July 2013, and is due to take 14 weeks. It is the first stage of a large new housing development east of the A429 on the edge of Wellesbourne.
This will be the entry road onto the new housing estate, and the speed limit signs indicate the end of the highway and the start of the estate.
Wellesbourne New Housing 'Ettington Park' by David P Howard
A large new housing development of approximately 175 homes is being built to the east of the A429 on the southern outskirts of Wellesbourne village.

It has been named Ettington Park, although there is some local feeling that it should have been called Redlands Park after the nursery that originally occupied the site. The original Ettington Park is a country house turned hotel not far away from here. LinkExternal link

The lead developer is Charles Church (Persimmon). LinkExternal link LinkExternal link LinkExternal link

A quantity of "Independent Living Extra Care Housing for older people" is being built by Orbit Homes as an integral part of the development. LinkExternal link LinkExternal link

The first stage of the development started on 22nd. July 2013, with the construction of a Section 278 roundabout (one funded by the developers), which was planned to take 14 weeks to construct. The contractor is McVeigh Construction working on behalf of Warwickshire County Council. LinkExternal link

The work building the new houses appeared to go quite quickly and a number were occupied by November / December 2014, in time for Xmas.
