Over £500,000 for South Wigston thanks to new homes development
Over half a million pounds will be contributed to local projects in South Wigston as part of the planning application for Waterside Gardens, the latest new homes development from Barratt Homes.
The funding, which totals £567,338, comes as part of the planning permission agreed by the Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and is being given by the homebuilder to support community investment through the development of educational facilities, infrastructural improvements and travel provisions.
Specific contributions include:
- Educational facilities – £399,90.24
- Bus pass contribution – £78,000
- Affordable housing – £25,000
- Bus stop contribution – £11,742
- Library facilities – £7,518.60
- Real time information display (at the station) – £3,900
John Dillon, Managing Director of Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We aim to contribute a great deal to the local area through the development of Waterside Gardens, both in terms of the high-quality homes we are building and the jobs we will be creating.
“We strongly believe that community development is one of the most important aspects of any new housing scheme and we hope that these financial contributions will go a long way towards improving the lives of those who live in the local area.”
Waterside Gardens is a beautiful development located on Pochin’s Bridge Road in South Wigston, a quiet suburb of Leicester. With beautiful countryside, great commuter links, local shops and ‘outstanding’ schools nearby, this is an ideal location for both first time buyers and families looking for a new place to call home.
Construction work is underway, but due to demand a selection of homes at Waterside Gardens will be made available for sale on Thursday 12th June between 5pm and 7pm from neighbouring development, Glenfield Park, on Kirby Road in Glenfield, where the showhomes are representative of the home styles found at the new development.
Waterside Gardens will provide an extensive range of 120 high-quality two, three and four bedroom homes to an area which has lain unused for nearly 20 years.
South Wigston offers the intimacy of small town life, with its open spaces ideal for long walks and for the children to play outside safely. But with the exciting city of Leicester close by, residents also benefit from the popular Highcross shopping centre, as well as a great range of restaurants, cinemas, bars and pubs.
Barratt Homes prides itself on creating exceptional homes in the finest locations and recently achieved the maximum five star housebuilder rating in a customer satisfaction survey ran by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), for the unrivalled fifth consecutive year.
