Green light for 210 new homes in Shepshed

06 April 2023

Approval has been granted by Charnwood Borough Council for the creation of 210 new homes in the Leicestershire town of Shepshed.

The development – known as Jubilee Rise – will be delivered by our North Midlands team. Bringing a mix of new homes to the area, the community will help to meet local housing needs, with 20% of properties to be transferred to an affordable housing provider for rent and shared ownership.

As part of the wider site, millions will be pledged to support infrastructure delivery and ensure economic development. Featuring a number of proposed community benefits, the wider site will also bring a range of facilities to the local community, including £2.1m towards local education provision, £349,000 towards local highways and £114,000 towards local healthcare.

Particular attention has been given to the environmental and ecological credentials of the new community, which will bring a biodiversity net gain to the area. Specific measures implemented by the developer include on-site wildflower meadows, bat and bird boxes, and landscaping in keeping with the development’s surrounding green space.

Sean Barratt, Technical Director at North Midlands region said: “We’re delighted to have received approval for our development at Shepshed and I want to thank Charnwood Borough Council for their support. Not only will the development deliver 210 quality new homes and a biodiversity net gain, it will also create local jobs as part of the construction and generate a significant investment in the local economy.

“We’re committed to creating vibrant, successful communities and supporting more local families in getting their dream homes. We’re looking forward to our new community taking shape over the course of 2023.”
