Major Development – Radio Station Rugby

The Rugby Radio Station site is a former radio transmission facility located off the A5.  Following decommissioning in 2003, BT and Aviva formed a joint venture, the Rugby Radio Station Limited Partnership (RRSLP), to promote the redevelopment of the Rugby Radio Station site.

In 2012 RRSLP went to the open market to select a development partner for the 1,170 acre SUE site and, following a competitive process, Urban&Civic was confirmed as the preferred partner in May 2013 since which time we have taken forward the outline planning application.

Rugby Borough Council granted outline planning permission in May 2014 and the Key Phase 1 information is currently before them for approval.

Once the world’s most powerful radio transmitter, reaching out to people across the globe – RadioStation Rugby will now connect people in whole new ways as the site’s legacy underpins its future. 6,200 new homes, 3 primary and one secondary school will be built as well as a new health centre and other community buildings and local centres.

There will be over 200 hectares of open space and nearly 14 km of footpaths and cycle paths criss-crossing the site. Intriguing and inspiring stories fill the historic buildings on the site and their presence in the future district centre will connect modern living with a rich heritage and green landscape. This is Rugby’s new sustainable urban extension – this is RadioStation Rugby.

A new website ‘Come Home to Houlton’ has recently been launched by Urban&Civic.  The website provides detailed information about the development of the site.
