57 new family homes are under construction on the site – 27 Shared Ownership and 30 Affordable Rent.

Anthony Riley from Waterloo Housing Group commented, “It is good to see the site progressing well. I’d urge any local residents to contact us if they are interested in the Shared Ownership homes (part rent/part buy) or go directly to Harborough District Council via Harborough Home Search, who are nominating all the families to us for the rented homes.  These homes will be ready in spring 2018”.

The site is on the old Vedonis works and the construction is by local developer Westleigh. Simon Preston, Director of Westleigh, added “This is a very attractive scheme of semi-detached and detached family homes, close to the Town Centre and we are pleased to be working with our long-standing partners, Waterloo Housing Group and Harborough District Council”.
