New Market Harborough Housing Development Nears Completion
01 Jul 2020

The Final Homes Are Now Under Construction At A New Housing Development In Market Harborough.

Linden Homes has begun work on the final seven properties at its Ashton Rise development, off Lubenham Hill.

The housebuilder is delivering 119 homes at the development, with construction work due to be completed this autumn. A total of 112 homes have already been built, of which 108 have been sold and are now occupied.

Work began on site in 2016 after planning permission was granted by Harborough District Council.

As well as providing new homes for Market Harborough, Linden Homes has contributed around £2 million in funding for local services through the planning agreement for the development.

The contributions include £873,155 towards primary, secondary and post-16 education, £237,825 towards outdoor sports provision, £170,000 towards cycling infrastructure improvements, and £126,577 towards children and young people’s services.

Funding has also been provided for parks and gardens, green space, a two-court badminton hall, local policing, cemeteries and allotments.

Sales Manager for Ashton Rise, Hannah Dorner, said: “In addition to providing Market Harborough with much-needed new home to meet the demand from buyers, Ashton Rise has delivered a major investment to improve local services and infrastructure for the benefit of new and existing residents in the town.

“The development includes a wide variety of homes designed to cater for people at all stages of the property ladder and that is one of the reasons why it has proved so popular.

“The location of Lubenham Road has also been important to its success. It’s viewed among Market Harborough’s best addresses.

“It has been great to see a new community forming at Ashton Rise, and as construction work draws to a close, I would encourage anyone interested in making their home here to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

A final selection of four and five-bedroom homes are available at Ashton Rise.
