The developer of Leicestershire’s newest village, Broadnook, is on the cusp of receiving approval for more than 150 homes.

Once completed, the wider project, Broadnook, will have 1,950 houses, along with amenities like a primary school, retirement village, GP surgery, supermarket, and employment areas.

Davidsons Homes obtained approval to commence construction on the first phase of 107 homes last year.

Cora Homes is now set to construct 154 residences on an additional plot within the development, with the application slated to undergo review by Charnwood Borough Council’s plans committee on Thursday evening, May 16th.

According to a report prepared for committee members, planning officers have proposed conditional approval for the application.

Originally, the scheme’s application was submitted to the council in 2016 by the Palmer-Tomkinson Trust, the Cooper family, Barwood Homes (now Cora), and Davidsons Homes.

After receiving approval from the planning committee four years later, Davidsons Homes and Barwood Homes acquired the land in 2022 for an undisclosed sum.

Homes England is financing infrastructure for the project, including a new roundabout from the A6.

The first wave of residents hope to move in later this year.
