This section outlines how we will engage and involve the local community in realising the scheme’s full potential.

As a large site controlled by five different landowners, we are working together to ensure delivery of the entire scheme to ensure individual parcels create a cohesive neighbourhood.

Through each stage of the planning and development process, we will keep in touch with the public and key stakeholders, so people have chance to share their views or contribute to consultations.

Details of active consultations are below.

Planning applications for Homestead View will be submitted over the coming months. You can access live application links and progress updates on our Applications page.

Community Update Exhibition June 2024 Postponed

Following the announcement made on Wednesday 22 May from the Prime Minister that there will be a General Election to the UK Parliament on Thursday 4 July, there is a need to postpone the Homestead View Community Update Exhibition to be held at Dunchurch & Thurlaston WI Hall on Wednesday 5th June 2024.

We will seek to confirm a re-arranged date, this is likely to be September 2024, following the school holidays. If you have any enquiries or for more information, please contact

Community Design Event July 2023

Homes England is now at the early stages of developing a vision for their land within the South West Rugby Allocation known as ‘Homestead View’.

Homes England invited Rugby’s residents to join a Community Design Event in Cawston and Dunchurch between 6th-8th July 2023. The event was a further opportunity for the community to share local knowledge and shape the Homestead View vision.

Homes England were seeking views on the Homestead View area and the emerging design for the primary road infrastructure for development in South West Rugby Urban Extension, notably upgrades to Cawston Lane and a new Community Spine Road. Homes England will submit a full planning application for these roads later this year.

Homestead Link Road

Engagement Event December 2021

Homes England is preparing a planning application to create a new link road in the Dunchurch area to support the planned development of the South West Rugby Urban Extension.

This new link will help to ease traffic through the area as it grows, reduce air pollution, and includes a significant landscaped green corridor to protect the adjacent woodland.

In December 2021, we launched a virtual and in person consultation on these plans. The consultation closed 7th January 2022, you can view and download copies of the exhibition information boards via the links below.

Homes England has now prepared the Homestead View Link Road planning application. The new link road will help ease traffic congestion in Dunchurch, support the delivery of the South West Rugby Urban Extension, and provide a significant landscaped corridor between Dunchurch and the future development. If the planning application is approved, construction of the road will commence in 2023.

Local residents were invited to find out more about the planning application at an Information Event in Dunchurch on Saturday 21st May, where updates on the development and its progress were shared.
