Approval granted for 127 new homes in Burbage, Leicestershire

11 April 2024

Approval has been granted by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council to develop 127 new homes in the popular location of Sketchley Old Village, on the outskirts of Burbage.

The site – delivered by our North Midlands team – will bring a range of new homes to the area, supporting the local need for quality new housing. The development will be made up of one- to five- bed properties, with the new homes designed to the highest specification.

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 Charles Church North Midlands said “We’re proud to have secured approval to deliver these 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. We’ll continue to work closely with Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council throughout the build process to deliver on these commitments.”

 “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.”
