A housebuilder in Leicestershire has made a significant contribution to the local community.

Redrow East Midlands, which is currently building at Chantry Mews, in New Lubbesthorpe, and Hugglescote Grange, in Coalville, has made a significant investment into the local area – over £752,000 – and isn’t finished yet.

With developments proving popular with buyers looking for their dream home, Redrow East Midlands has been hard at work supporting the surrounding areas, providing funds to bolster local education services, infrastructure and biodiversity.

Part of the wider New Lubbesthorpe development, Chantry Mews is set in 325 acres of new parkland and wetland – providing a haven for wildlife and residents alike. The development has so far seen the opening of the New Lubbesthorpe Primary School. The Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ school opened in 2019 and is only the beginning of education improvements to the area, with plans for a second primary school and a new secondary school underway.

At Hugglescote Grange, biodiversity is a key priority, and the development has seen hundreds of pounds invested into the creation of animal-friendly spaces, with artificial hibernation areas created and native trees planted throughout.

With over 2,000 new homes in total in the wider Hugglescote scheme, Redrow East Midlands has supported the creation of new play areas, a local library, cycleways and footpaths.

Across Leicestershire, Redrow has invested over £752,000, with a further £706,000 still to be invested in supporting local communities to thrive.
