Work underway at new homes development in sought after Leicestershire location

Dandara has officially begun construction at its The Meadows development on East Road in the village of Wymeswold, North Leicestershire – ranked as one of the top places to live in the UK in 2023*.

The 9.9 acre site will become host to 65 new homes, 26 of which will be affordable, and will be available to move into in early 2024. The Meadows will offer a collection of two-bedroom bungalows as well as three, four, and five-bedroom homes with open-plan living spaces, private gardens, and/or driveway parking.

The development will contribute £205,097 as part of the S106 agreement towards local education, healthcare, libraries and outdoor sport. Open spaces and a play area will be provided on site.

Rachel Lindop, Head of Sales at Dandara Northern Home Countries said: “It’s great to finally be breaking ground here at The Meadows and starting construction! This is a really exciting development, offering better value for money for prospective buyers compared to buying in the surrounding cities like Leicester and Nottingham.

“The Meadows is designed to ensure green space is a priority, with plans for two new ponds, and nearly three acres of open space – which will include biodiversity measures to help enhance local ecology. We look forward to seeing the progress of the development, and the creation of a new community for our residents in this fantastic village.”

Situated in a well-connected location, the development is just a short drive from the A46 and M1, providing easy access throughout the country. Additionally, Barrow Upon Soar train station is just a ten-minute drive away, offering services to Leicester and London St Pancreas.

Located in a tranquil setting, The Meadows offers access to green spaces and excellent local amenities within Wymeswold village. Homes are also close to a choice of ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated schools and are within easy reach of Loughborough University for higher education.

Trusted housebuilder Dandara has been awarded 5 stars for customer satisfaction by the Home Builders Federation both years it has entered following a successful expansion throughout the UK. As construction begins, The Meadows development promises to be another great success.
