Osgathorpe development site sold to Housebuilder
The 1.7 acre site, which is located on Dawsons Road in the attractive, sought after village, has been sold to Chevin Homes, and has outline planning consent for up to 16 new homes, plus a children’s play area.
An S106 agreement, providing funding for the local community, has already been completed with North West Leicestershire District Council in respect of the site, and looks set to bring funding towards local library, education, and other facilities, including towards the purchase and restoration of a local pub and asset of community value, The Storey Arms.
Gary Kirk, Land Agent for Mather Jamie, said, “This site, located on the northern edge of the village, should provide an ideal spot for proposed new homes for Osgathorpe, being a short walk from the village centre, as well as close enough to the Ashby Road to benefit commuters.
“The site received a lot of interest from the house builder market which is testament to the strong appetite we are experiencing from the local development community, especially for sites in attractive rural locations.”
Dan Stack, Director of Chevin Homes, said, “We’re privileged to have the opportunity to provide outstanding new homes in Osgathorpe, and are delighted that our purchase will make a significant contribution to the local parish council, to assist with local amenities.
“We will be working with the local authority to ensure we deliver a sympathetic and in-keeping development to provide a range of high specification 2,3,4 & 5 bedroom properties to satisfy local demand.”
