New Lubbesthorpe will deliver a complete community to the west of Leicester providing new facilities for current as well as new residents.

The site lies to the west of the M1, east of Beggar’s Lane, south of Leicester Forest East and north and south of the M69.

The proposal is being promoted by an experienced, local consortium with reputations for high quality developments including local developers, Davidsons, Barratt David Wilson and Hallam Land Management.

Scheme Key Elements

  • 4,250 high quality new homes
  • A strategic employment park, which with the district centre employment, can create approximately 2,500 jobs
  • 75 acres of new woodland and 250 acres of open space and park land
  • Two primary and one secondary school
  • Mixed-use neighbourhood centre with space for a range of food and drink, retail, a health centre, leisure and community uses (including a nursery & community centre)

More than 40 per cent of the site outlined in the master plan would remain as green open space. A significant green buffer is also proposed around existing properties, while still allowing for footpath access to reach the new schools, healthcare, local shops, leisure and other community facilities which would be provided on the site.

We will maintain the distinctiveness of the adjacent communities, setting back the development from homes at Leicester Forest East and Enderby and providing new extensive planting and landscaping areas between the proposed scheme and existing urban edge.
