First of big trio of Leicester developments completes

The keys to our last new homes at St Mary’s allotments have been handed over to customers, which completes house-building on the first of our three big developments in Leicester with Countryside.

All properties are now occupied on the £18.2m development at Aylestone with the final 17 homes released this month.

All 125 family houses and flats have been finished to a higher environmental standard and have been fitted with solar panels which will help reduce our customers’ energy bills.

The largest site at Wolsey Island – known locally as Sock Island due to the hosiery factory that once stood there – should also complete over the next few weeks.

The third site - our popular development at Green Lane Road - is due for completion in autumn.

The ambitious £58m programme of development got underway in 2017 and is providing almost 400 quality homes close to Leicester city centre with more than half at affordable rent or for shared ownership.

The developments have also regenerated pockets of disused and unsightly land.
