North Midlands team completes deal to develop up to 150 homes in Burbage, Leicestershire

11 October 2023

Our North Midlands team has completed the purchase of land to unlock a housing development in the popular location of Sketchley Old Village on the outskirts of Burbage.

The site will deliver up to 150 new homes, supporting the local need for quality new housing - made up of 2, 3, 4, and 5 bed properties, the new homes are designed to the highest specification and in keeping with the premium Charles Church brand. A significant portion of the land will be kept as public open space for the people of Burbage, helping to enhance the area’s green space and biodiversity.

Along with the boost to local housing needs, the scheme will bring with it a range of community benefits - including a total of up to £860,000 pledged towards the nearby area. Within this amount includes over £113,500 towards early years education, £192,000 towards local highways improvements and over £108,000 towards public transport improvements.  

Dan Endersby, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes and Charles Church North Midlands said: “We’re proud to have completed the purchase of land to deliver up to 150 new homes in Burbage, Leicestershire. Our upcoming new community will bring a wide range of new benefits to the area, including major improvements to local roads, public open spaces, healthcare, and education.

 “Of course, what we do is about so much more than building quality homes. This development will not only generate significant job opportunities throughout the lifespan of the project but will also leave a lasting legacy of community benefits for the people of Burbage and the surrounding areas.”
