Leicestershire housebuilder Barratt Homes is set to contribute more than £50,000 towards local infrastructure and public services as part of the planning agreement for a brand-new housing development in Melton Mowbray.

The 233-home development named King’s Meadow, which is set to launch on Saturday 9th July, will consist of a mix of two, three and four bedroom homes upon completion; 15% of which are affordable properties.

As part of the agreement for the new development, Barratt Homes will contribute a total of £51,756.29 to Melton Mowbray. Among the contributions are over £25,000 towards education in the area, in addition to more than £19,000 towards civic amenities and over £7,000 towards library facilities.

Mark Cotes, Managing Director for Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “The funding boost we are providing as part of our King’s Meadow development will enable substantial improvements to be made to public facilities and services used by the people of Melton Mowbray and its surrounding areas.

“As well as direct funding as part of our planning agreement for the new homes, the development will also deliver additional benefits to local economy through job creation, and provide greater support to local businesses from new residents moving into the new properties.”

The sales centre is being unveiled at the development on Kirby Lane as part of an official launch taking place on Saturday 9th July.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “With the first properties already on sale and our new sales centre launching next weekend, we are very much looking forward to welcoming more people to this exciting new community.

“We’d strongly advise any interested house-hunters to get in touch with our Sales Advisers to find out more about the excellent variety of new homes we have available.”

There is currently a selection of three and four bedroom properties available at King’s Meadow with prices starting from £271,995. For a hassle-free move, Barratt Homes can pay the estate agent fees of second steppers with its Movemaker scheme.
