Redrow Homes East Midlands has confirmed the development of 42 homes in Wigston, five miles to the south of Leicester city centre.
A five-acre site has been acquired by Redrow Homes East Midlands, where the housebuilder plans to build 42 three- and four-bedroom homes. Construction is set to 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 it 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.
“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.”
Clarence Fields is the eleventh development in region for Redrow Homes East Midlands.
