Redrow has confirmed the development of 42 much-needed homes in Wigston.
Redrow Homes East Midlands has acquired a five-acre site for the construction of three and four-bedroom homes, situated off Welford Road – just five miles to the south of Leicester city centre.
Construction will commence at the development, named Clarence Fields, in September, with the first homes available early next year.
A large part of the development will be set out as public open space, with the addition of a footpath link which will connect the development with amenities to the north. Redrow Homes will also be contributing towards a new primary school and library.
Martyn Pask, Regional Director for Redrow Homes East Midlands, said: “Located to the south of the thriving city of Leicester, Wigston offers the best of both town and country living – making it an obvious choice for us to build our latest development.
“With its own town centre, good transport links and an array of schools, including several rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, it’s easy to see why Wigston is becoming a popular place to call home.
“We are thrilled to be building much-needed homes for the people of Wigston, as well as further cementing our reputation for creating thriving communities across the East Midlands with our second development in Leicestershire.”
Sam Sutton, Director at Phillips Sutton Associates, said: “After a short period of marketing jointly with Gladman Developments and a competitive bidding process our clients decided to select Redrow PLC as the preferred developer.
Redrow performed professionally throughout the process and completed within the agreed timescales to the delight of our clients. A good result all round with Redrow securing a much needed housing scheme for South Leicester.”
Interested parties are being encouraged to register their details now to ensure they are among the first to hear when properties are released for sale next year.
Clarence Fields is the eleventh development in region for Redrow Homes East Midlands, which is currently selling properties across Derbyshire.
Homes are now also for sale from £375,000 at Saxon Meadows in Market Harborough, Redrow Homes East Midlands first development in Leicestershire.
