Taylor Wimpey East Midlands has announced the name of its planned new 300-plus home development as part of the Money Hill site.
The homebuilder has today (Tuesday) invited interested buyer to register their interest in the new Castle Manor estate, with a launch planned for later this year.
Castle Manor will comprise of 302 three, four and five-bedroom homes which will - says Taylor Wimpey - be designed to suit everyone from first time buyers and downsizers to growing families.
Taylor Wimpey adds that those moving in to Castle Manor will benefit from 'easy access to everyday amenities and plenty of choice for walks, recreation and leisure'.
It adds there will be: "Several new play areas, and a trim trail for children, will provide the perfect spaces for residents young and old to meet and socialise.
"Commuters will also benefit from the close proximity of East Midlands Parkway railway station for journeys to London and Nottingham. For trips further afield, East Midlands Airport is just 17 minutes away by car."
Olivia Peters, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, said: "We are looking forward to offering home hunters the chance to reserve a new house at Castle Manor.
"The homes here have been designed with energy-efficient features as standard, and the peaceful location of Ashby De La Zouch is bound to be a popular choice for people looking to move in this area.
"We would encourage anyone interested in making a move to Castle Manor to register their interest on our website HERE to ensure they are up to date with the latest information ahead of the launch which will take place later this year."
Banners advertising the new Castle Manor homes are now visible on both the Ashby by-pass and on Nottingham Road.
However, while work is progressing on the site, Ashby Town Council is still unhappy about the lack of commitment to a pathway linking the new homes to the town centre at North Street.
Ashby de la Zouch Town Council, along with a number of local residents had objected to the application - in particular, the Nottingham Road section, for that reason.
At a recent meeting of the town council's planning committee, councillors were concerned that the new three metre cycleway ends at the boundary of the developer-owned land.
The continuation of the route to North Street is the responsibility of Leicestershire County Council.
Eventually, there will be 605 houses with Bloor Homes also building at the site.
The applicants – the Money Hill Consortium – also plans to build a 60-bed extra care centre, a new primary school, a nursery, shops and a community hall.
There are also plans for three public green spaces, a play area and a square as part of the development.
Work has already started on the site next to the Ashby by-pass.
