Blaby District Council has announced plans for a new residential community named Hayes Gardens in Leicestershire, proposing the construction of up to 800 homes on a 141-acre (57-hectare) area to the east of Enderby.

The council has indicated that the development may involve the closure of the Enderby Golf Course, predominantly owned by the council, to accommodate the project.

Santander UK owns the majority of the land earmarked for development, with the banking firm having reorganised its Carlton Park office complex, resulting in excess land suitable for residential purposes.

The council has said the plan is in its early stages but has the potential to aid in fulfilling its government-mandated objective of identifying land for 687 homes annually until 2036.

It has been announced that several public meetings will take place in May and June to provide residents with further information about the project.
