Works starts on 16 af­ford­able homes

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

WORK is un­der­way on a £2.5m project to de­liver 16 new af­ford­able homes in Earl Shilton.

Le­ices­ter­shire based prop­erty de­vel­oper Ka­plan Prop­erty Group has se­cured full plan­ning per­mis­sion for the scheme, which will be de­liv­ered in part­ner­ship with East Mid­lands Hous­ing Group, Hinck­ley & Bos­worth Bor­ough Coun­cil, Earl Shilton Town Coun­cil and Keg­worth based con­trac­tor Geda Con­struc­tion.

The £2.5m mixed ten­ure de­vel­op­ment at Birch Close, Earl Shilton, will com­prise of 16 af­ford­able houses and bun­ga­lows. Through the sup­port of Earl Shilton Town Coun­cil, im­prove­ments will be made to ad­ja­cent Pub­lic Open Space as part of the scheme, with im­proved ac­cess for new and ex­ist­ing res­i­dents.

Work has al­ready be­gun at the 1.6 acre site close to Earl Shilton town cen­tre.

Ka­plan Prop­erty Group’s com­mit­ment in Earl Shilton forms part of a wider £26.4m de­vel­op­ment pro­gram across Le­ices­ter­shire and the wider re­gion.

Michael Gis­borne, Prop­erty Di­rec­tor at Ka­plan Prop­erty Group, said:

“We are de­lighted to have se­cured full plan­ning per­mis­sion for this scheme. The £2.5m in­vest­ment demon­strates a com­mit­ment to the de­liv­ery of af­ford­able hous­ing within Hinck­ley and Bos­worth Bor­ough and across the re­gion.

“It is our plea­sure to help pro­vide af­ford­able homes for the res­i­dents of Earl Shilton. It is hugely im­por­tant for com­mu­ni­ties in Le­ices­ter­shire to have ac­cess to af­ford­able hous­ing with first-class fa­cil­i­ties, and in this re­spect, these 16 new prop­er­ties are part of a much big­ger pic­ture. We will see even greater in­vest­ment in af­ford­able hous­ing in the re­gion, and Ka­plan Prop­erty Group will be at the fore­front of that.

“Now that work has be­gun on site we look for­ward to suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion and wel­com­ing the first res­i­dents.”
