Davidsons Homes provides Leicestershire with £1.5m boost so far this year

Davidsons Homes has pledged approximately £1.5m in benefits to Leicestershire communities in the first months of 2016 alone.

The Ibstock based builder has launched four sites in its home county so far this year which have all led to considerable sums of money being designated to help improve local infrastructure via Section 106 planning agreements.

The financial boosts include nearly £300,000 to Lutterworth where Davidsons Homes is building Royal Park, over £300,000 for Barley Fields in Queniborough, over £151,000 for Sutton Park in Broughton Astley and over £600,000 to Ashby de la Zouch where the housebuilder is creating Tudor Rise.

As part of that development, and on top of the financial contributions, Davidsons Homes is also building a new medical centre, a 60-bedroom care home and is providing land for a new primary school.

On top of that, Davidsons Homes is one of the developers that’s creating the 4,250 homes at New Lubbesthorpe which will include two new primary schools and a new secondary school, a new supermarket, a new health centre and a business park set to create approximately 2,500 new jobs.

Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: “It’s a hugely exciting time for Davidsons Homes as we’ve launched a number of developments that are helping to meet the need for new homes in Leicestershire.

“We’re committed to making these developments sustainable and therefore delighted to be able to provide boosts for the communities we are building in via financial contributions.

“Education, health, library services and transport infrastructure are among the areas that benefit from Section 106 payments and we’re also delighted to be providing buildings such as the care home in Ashby as part of our developments.”

Davidsons Homes has recently scored five stars with the Home Builders’ Federation for the fourth year in a row.
