New Homes Set To Transform Derelict Site In South Wigston

Construction work is now underway at Barratt Homes' latest new homes development in South Wigston, which will see 120 new homes built on a site which has lain unused for nearly 20 years.

Located on Pochins Bridge Road in South Wigston, the new development, named Waterside Gardens, is being built on an old recreational ground next to an existing new homes development.

Barratt Homes is redeveloping the area, putting this once derelict site back to good use by building an extensive range of two, three and four bedroom home styles and transforming the neighbouring area into public open space for future residents of the development and the wider community of South Wigston to enjoy.

Once completed, Waterside Gardens will provide two, three and four bedroom homes built with energy and efficiency in mind, underpinning over 200 jobs for local people. And with construction now well underway, the showhomes will be open by summer this year (2014).

John Dillon, Managing Director of Barratt Homes North Midlands, said, “We are really looking forward to launching our new development, Waterside Gardens. This is an exciting project for us and we hope to develop a new community here in the heart of Leicestershire.

“We plan to contribute a great deal to the local area as a result of this new development, both in terms of the high-quality homes we will be building and the jobs which will be created for local people and businesses.”

Waterside Gardens is a beautiful development located in South Wigston, a quiet suburb of Leicester. With great commuter links, local shops, pubs and fantastic schools nearby, this is an ideal development for both first time buyers and families looking for a new place to call home.
