Sixty high specification residences and a clubhouse are to be built at the Silverstone race circuit, the globally recognised home of motorsport. ‘The Residences at Silverstone’ will be made available for short term rental and will be managed under a hotel operating model. The Residences will offer priority use of the circuit and are designed to attract individuals with a passion for motorsport from all over the world.
The masterplan for the site sees four different types of building sitting within a generous 14-acre landscape. Raised landforms, swales and extensive planting will create features around which each residence is arranged. Careful positioning will maximise views of either the track or rolling countryside, whilst maintaining privacy for occupants.
A clubhouse at the south-end of the site will provide guests with a gym, treatment rooms, track- briefing area, simulation room, concierge, and restaurant and there will be a bar to promote social interaction amongst like-minded visitors. A roof terrace will sit directly above the most exciting complex of corners on the circuit.
The scheme gained Outline Planning consent in May 2018 as part of the wider Silverstone Circuit outline approval. Today the Local Planning Authority Committee voted to support the Officers’ recommendation to grant approval of the Reserved Matters Application and delegate to the Director of Planning.
Further details on the development will be provided over the next couple of months and this will include the anticipated timeline for completion and opening.
