Developer to support over 450 jobs in Leicestershire
Some 466 local jobs are set to be supported at a new residential scheme in Melton Mowbray.
Barratt Homes North Midlands’ King’s Meadow development on Kirby Lane, which consists of 233 new homes, will provide jobs for workers in the area throughout the development process.
The housebuilder predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradespeople, including apprentices.
Mark Cotes, managing director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “Our new development in Melton Mowbray will provide much needed housing in the Leicestershire area. This is also great news for the local economy with the jobs that will be underpinned whilst we’re building the new homes.
“We aim to support local sub-contractors and tradesmen where possible to ensure the areas in which we build benefit directly from our developments.
“Our dedicated team at Barratt Homes are very much looking forward to helping people find the right homes for them at our well-anticipated King’s Meadow development.”
