Land deal agreed for new homes in Melton Mowbray

A land deal has been agreed for a housing development that will bring new homes to Melton Mowbray, just off Leicester Road.

Bellway is looking to build a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes at the new development which will be called Roman Gate.

Melton Borough Council approved an outline planning application for the construction of up to 520 dwellings at the site in 2016.

Bellway has put forward detailed plans to build 326 homes at the site, submitting proposals for 266 homes on land south of Leicester Road and a further 60 on an adjoining piece of land to the west.

Sales Director for Bellway East Midlands, Carolyne Watkinson, said: “There is a clear need for new homes in Melton Mowbray and this proposed new development would meet the high demand for housing in the local area.

“The homes we’ve planned as part of the development will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers, with a range of house types all built to a high specification.

“We’re expecting a great deal of interest here, as the new homes will enjoy a convenient and delightful location, with easy access to Melton Mowbray and Leicester, as well as picturesque countryside on the doorstep.”

As well as bringing new homes to the area, the wider development will bring investment in the area in support of local projects and improvements.

This will include a £4.5 million contribution towards roads, as well as over £530,000 towards local education, £500,000 towards sustainable transport services, and over £176,000 to the police service.
