Owl Homes, the leading Midlands home builder, has been granted full planning permission for a development of 18 homes in Doveridge, Derbyshire.

The decision marks another significant milestone in Owl Homes’ mission to bring its distinctive quality homes to a wider market across the Midlands.

The 3.36-acre Marston Lane site includes a variety of two, three and four-bedroom homes. Of the 18 homes, 12 will be for private sale and six will be affordable housing. These affordable homes will be subdivided into two first homes, two homes for affordable rent and two shared equity homes.

Working with Derbyshire Dales District Council, Owl Homes is aiming to make sure that the affordable homes meet the specific housing needs of the community.


Managing Director Dave Bradley said: "This new project in Derbyshire represents another step in our long-term strategy to expand into various Midlands communities. Marston Lane not only allows us to develop more high-quality homes, but also to work closely with the District Council in providing a range of affordable housing options."

All homes in this development will be fitted with air source heat pumps, reiterating Owl Homes' ongoing commitment to sustainability.

Dave Bradley added: "Just as with our recent developments, these homes will meet the high standards that our clients have come to expect. We will continue to focus on quality, community and sustainability, as we have successfully done with our other developments."


This latest development follows a busy summer for Owl Group, made up of Owl Homes and affordable homes developer Owl Partnership. The Group acquired three new sites across the Midlands, totalling more than 200 new homes, including 135 affordable homes.
