Barratt Homes North Midlands has announced that its new development in Leicestershire will underpin approximately 466 jobs for local people.

The leading developer is set to deliver a total of 233 new homes to its upcoming King’s Meadow development in Melton Mowbray, on Kirby Lane, which is set to provide the jobs to workers in the area throughout the development process.

The housebuilder predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen, including apprentices, so local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.

“Our dedicated team at Barratt Homes are very much looking forward to helping people find the right homes for them at our well-anticipated King’s Meadow development.”
