Description

Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council are considering the sale of an area of green field land for residential development. This site extends to approximately 15 acres (6 ha) and is situated on the south side of the City of Leicester.
It is intended that the site will be developed broadly in accordance with the layout plan (link to the document is below) and residential properties constructed will reflect strong environmental credentials, that is, construction standard to a minimum of Code for Sustainable Homes level 4, with a Nature Reserve and a large area of Public Open Space to be incorporated within the development. A commuted sum will be required to pay for future maintenance of these areas. This layout suggested denotes a semi-detached arrangement of properties with the island parcel to the south holding some larger detached dwellings. This is an indicative sketch only aiming to show simply the general form and arrangements in terms of frontages etc. to indicate approximately 80-100 dwellings.
In order to establish the development industry’s views on this your consideration would be appreciated to the questions in the document link: “Potential Residential Development Site At Franklyn Fields, Leicester” found at the bottom of this Opportunity, having regard to the layout plan and principles of development as outlined above:
