More Than Half A Million To Be Spent On Local Community Thanks To New Homes

Friday 17 January, 2014

More than £577,000 will be given to support local projects in North Hykeham, thanks to two new homes developments from Barratt Developments.

The funding, which is part of planning agreements with North Kevesten District Council, will be put towards such things as creating and maintaining public open spaces, providing improvements to schools and educational facilities, and funding recreational facilities and play equipment, including the construction of a new pavilion with changing rooms.

The contributions come from developers Barratt and David Wilson Homes as a result of their new homes developments, Manor Farm and Kings Court, which have been built in North Hykeham.

In addition to these investments, Barratt Developments has also donated thousands of pounds to local good causes over the past few years, from charity events to sponsoring local sports teams and helping with school projects.

John Dillon, Managing Director of Barratt Developments' North Midlands division, said: “As well as building new homes we want to support local communities and we hope these contributions will go a long way towards improving the lives of people who live in the local area.”

Kings Court features a range of stylish new four and five bedroom luxury homes from developer David Wilson Homes. The new phase at Kings Court will be launching in March 2014, so for more information, or to register your interest, please visit the website at www.dwh.co.uk, or call 0844 811 3388.
