City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, was recently welcomed by Barratt Homes for a VIP tour of the housebuilder’s City Heights development in Leicester.
Joining the homebuilder’s award-winning team onsite, the Mayor was given a tour of three distinctive show homes before receiving an insight into the development’s progress and trying his hand at bricklaying.
Accompanying Sir Peter on the tour was Chris Southgate (Managing Director), Kevin Mowbray (Senior Site Manager), Matt Gimson (Contracts Manager), Martyn Parker (Sales Manager) and Roxy Williams (Sales Adviser).
Also attending the tour of City Heights was Lauren Tyrrell, Development Manager at Leicester City Council.
During his visit, Sir Peter was updated on the plans for the development and saw the properties at different build stages. He then had a go at bricklaying with the experienced site team.
Sir Peter said: “New housing is much needed in Leicester, which is why it’s great to see this development taking shape. Barratt Homes are developing a wide range of quality homes at this site, of different styles and types, which is an exciting offer for Leicester people and those looking to make a home here.
“We’re working on building more council homes and other measures to bring more affordable housing to the city, and this is complemented by the work of private housebuilders like Barratt Homes investing in our city.”
Since its launch in early 2018, City Heights has welcomed great success with 76 properties already moved into.
With a selection of one, two, three, four and six bedroom properties being built across the development’s duration, the new homes are sure to suit first time buyers and growing families alike.
Chris Southgate, Managing Director of Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “It was a pleasure to have Sir Peter Soulsby visit our City Heights development and we were delighted to show him the progress we’re making on site.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming homebuyers as they make the move to this excellent location and join a new community in Leicester.”
The prestigious homes at City Heights are complemented by a sought-after location close to the city centre, with great amenities in walking distance such as Abbey Park, the Golden Mile, a supermarket and a gym.
A choice of highly-rated schooling options are also nearby which is excellent news for families looking for a new place to call home.
Anyone interested in seeing the development for themselves can do so by visiting the Sales Centre and Show Homes, open Monday 12:30pm to 5.30pm and Thursday to Sunday 10am to 5.30pm.
