Housebuilder makes £10m contribution to community

A South West housebuilder is contributing over £10m to the Tiverton community.

Redrow South West’s Blundell’s Grange development, which includes 122 new homes, including both private and affordable housing, has confirmed that it is contributing over £10m to the area.

The investment includes a number of contributions, with £3.6m to support local schools and education services, and over £921,000 towards making much-needed highway improvements in the local area, including traffic calming measures.

The contribution also includes £852,000 towards improving and creating new transport and cycle infrastructure around the town centre.

The housebuilder will also be contributing £1.3m to creating a brand-new community sports centre, complete with a hard-court play area, five sports pitches, and changing rooms.

Sian Smith, sales director at Redrow South West, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting the community of Tiverton and ensuring the sustainability of our already popular Blundell’s Grange development, while bringing much-needed homes in the region.

“Our commitment to creating thriving communities will not only benefit the local area, but also our new residents, who we are excited to see start moving into this development when it opens later this year.

“With investment in local education providers, highway improvements, as well as a new community sports centre, we are excited to be expanding our portfolio in the area to create high quality, new homes in Tiverton and providing this investment into the Devon region.

“This development is already proving popular with a number of reservations already being taken and we are anticipating a show home launch in just a few months’ time. We’d encourage anyone looking to purchase a home at Blundell’s Grange to register their interest at our neighbouring development, St Michael’s Meadow, as soon as possible.”
