Other contributions include a subsidy to local public transport and money towards the maintenance of green areas including sports facilities, play equipment, improved drainage, and public art.

The development, which is called Newton’s Place, is situated on Barrowby Road in Grantham, will feature a collection of two, three and four bedroom homes and apartments suitable for a range of homebuyers.

It will feature a collection of 275 homes from both Barratt and David Wilson Homes, and will underpin 550 jobs over the lifetime of the project. Both housebuilder’s predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen so the local economy will benefit directly from the new jobs supported.

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “We will be contributing to Lincolnshire not only through the financial agreements, but also through the jobs and training opportunities we create for local people and the quality homes we build.”
