Start your journey
What you see today is only the beginning of your journey, as well as ours. 6,200 homes will be created in the verdant Warwickshire countryside with new schools and an excellent location. Set within 1,200 acres of beautiful open space, this is an unspoiled, super-connected place with a rich history and an exciting future.
The first homes at Houlton are now underway and we hope to welcome our first residents in early summer 2017. Our carefully selected housebuilders build quality homes that look good and fit well into the beautiful countryside setting at Houlton.
This is one of the most well-connected places in the country, and from Rugby you can reach 80% of the country within 4 hours. So whether it’s visiting family, weekends away or the daily commute – you couldn’t be in a better place.
The Bigger Picture
The development is being brought forward by Urban&Civic in partnership with Aviva Investors and partners – combining long term investment with experience of delivering largescale communities across the country.
We are proud of our track record for community engagement in Rugby. Local Parish Councils, community groups, elected members and neighbouring residents are amongst our wider network of partners. They come with us on the journey and help steer us in creating a place that truly fits with Rugby and its existing communities.
We’re looking for people to come and work with us at Houlton and be based in our new Dollman Farm Visitor Centre. Marketing Executive and Visitor Centre Manager are what we’re looking for. Download the details and we’d love to hear from you.
