David Wilson Homes East Midlands has announced that its new development in Thorpebury will underpin approximately 550 jobs for local people.

The leading developer will bring a total of 225 new homes to its upcoming development, close to Barkby Thorpe, which will underpin close to 550 local jobs throughout the development process.

David Wilson Homes East Midlands predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen – so local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Our new development in Thorpebury will provide much needed housing in the Charnwood area. This is also good news for the local economy with the local construction jobs underpinned by building the new homes.

“We aim to support local sub-contractors and tradesmen where possible to ensure the areas in which we build benefit directly from our developments.

“We’re looking forward to seeing Thorpebury in the Limes progress and our team at David Wilson Homes will take great satisfaction in helping more customers take their first or next step on the property ladder.”

Located on Hamilton Lane, the development will be moments away from Thurmaston shopping centre, which has great retail options such as Next, Dunelm and TK Maxx, as well as Starbucks and ASDA.

Additionally, Leicester city centre is under six miles away, giving access to more shops, as well as both local and chain restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as cultural experiences from museums and art galleries such as Newark Houses Museum.

Residents will also have convenient access to medical care, as there are a range of doctor’s surgeries close by including Hilltop Surgery, as well as Leicester General Hospital being in close proximity, and Leicester Royal Infirmary is just over six miles away.

For those looking for an escape from the city, there will be walking and cycling routes that run throughout the development to both Thurmaston and Hamilton, as well as plenty of planned open space on the development itself.
