Redrow to Help More Local Causes
As the ground-breaking Ledsham Garden Village welcomes more and more new residents, Redrow is also keen to build on its help to the surrounding community.
Following a sales launch last summer, the garden village venture has experienced a superb rate of sales across its two developments so far, with homebuyers eager to stake their claim on the new lifestyle on offer.
A staggering total of 65 homes have already been sold at Ledsham Garden Village and the popularity shows no signs of waning, according to Redrow’s NW sales director Jason Newton.
He said: “Ledsham Garden Village has been going from strength to strength and we expect that trend to continue. With a range of homes on offer, it will be an all-encompassing new community, with plenty of green open spaces, a new school and other facilities.
“Boosting the local area further, we’ve also had a lot of success with local charities and causes that we’ve supported with our community fund. So far, we’ve been able to help out scout groups, primary schools, football teams, the Royal British Legion and the parish council to name but a few, and we’re now excited to launch our second fund for the area.”
The first community fund was launched by the housebuilder last year and resulted in 13 local causes being awarded a share of the funding.
Jason added: “Redrow sees it as a high priority to get involved with the communities in which we build and it’s been fantastic to see the results of what we’ve been able to fund so far. If there are other causes in the area that are in need of financial help, we would invite them to apply for a share of another £10,000.”
The community funds are in addition to Redrow’s contribution, as part of the planning process, of over £13.3m to the surrounding area which will go towards a new primary school, off-site school provision, new and improved bus routes, better playing fields / play facilities, and improvements to local shops and health facilities. There will also be a total of 500 affordable homes built.
Those wishing to nominate a project for Redrow to consider should email email@example.com with contact details and a summary of the project by October 31, 2017.
The flagship new development, set to cover 105 hectares to the north of Ledsham Road, will eventually become a sustainable new community of up to 2,000 homes.
Redrow is currently building in two neighbouring developments at Ledsham Garden Village; Oaklands and Sycamore Green. The five new show homes at Ledsham Garden Village are open seven days a week, between 10am and 5.30pm.
