Green light for high-end residential development

Catherine Haward

Plans to transform a former Leicestershire warehouse into a residential development have been approved.

Developer Wheatcroft Land has bought the site in Moira and now plans to build nine high family homes in the waterside location.

Director at Wheatcroft Land Catherine Haward said: “We are really excited about bringing this development forward; we will be building a range of semi-detached and detached properties and creating real waterside living.

“This is a really beautiful location right on the water’s edge and within a stone’s throw of the National Forest, which will be a fantastic place to live and enjoy the great outdoors. The former warehouse buildings have been demolished and construction of the new homes will commence in January 2019 with a target completion date of September 2019.”

This is the second residential scheme the developer is currently working on in the East Midlands, with another 14-unit scheme underway in Ancaster in Lincolnshire which is expected to complete in June 2019.
