Amington Garden Village

Amington Garden Village in Tamworth, is a great example of how close cooperation with the local authority and adapting quickly to changing circumstances can successfully deliver much-needed new homes, community facilities and green space, alongside jobs and training.

Key stats


new homes

including 207 affordable


community investment

including a new on-site primary school


Public green space

including a nature reserve


Amington Garden Village is a perfect example of Redrow’s commitment to strong placemaking, sustainable developments and creating thriving communities.

The local centre and on-site primary school will provide key services for new and existing residents, while the delivery of 25 hectares of green space, including a nature reserve, community woodland, a network of footpaths and cycleways, and children’s play areas, will ensure that people living here can connect with nature on their doorstep.


Outline consent for Amington Garden Village, given in 2016, allowed for 1,100 new homes on the former golf course site. The final reserved matters application, agreed in 2021, means that the number of homes eventually
delivered will be 1,036.

Another major change delivered through close cooperation between Redrow, Tamworth Borough Council and NHBC is a new training hub on part of the land allocated for the local centre.

By slightly reducing the number of homes planned, we’re ensuring we meet consumer demand for larger houses with more private outdoor space and fewer apartments”
