New homes builder, Miller Homes East Midlands, has announced that an investment of £669,112 is set to benefit the Leicestershire village of Stoke Golding, as it prepares to launch its latest neighbourhood, Kingshill Park.

Primary, secondary and higher education is the principal focus of the investment, with further funds dedicated to enhancing health services and green recreational spaces, as well as providing current and future residents with improved access to public transport.

A contribution of more than £352,000 will go towards improving the facilities at St Margaret’s Church of England Primary School, while The Redmoor Academy will be the beneficiary of over £60,000. Higher education in the area will also see a boost, with Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre receiving £40,818 to make required enhancements to its onsite offering. 

To improve health services for the entire community, £35,441 is to be earmarked for the creation of additional patient spaces at two GP practices in the area - Castle Mead Medical Practice Hinckley and the Pine Close Surgery Stoke Golding.

Acknowledging the importance of green public spaces within communities, a further investment is to be set aside to build a new play area and sporting facilities at Stoke Golding’s Hall Drive Park. An injection of £67,971 will help to provide the village’s younger residents with a safe space to socialise at a fully-equipped playground, while £35,884 is to be allocated towards the development of outdoor sports pitches.

Other significant contributions from Miller Homes include £50,400 for the provision of bus passes to qualifying members of the community. And, together, with a commitment to improve two bus stops, it is hoped that this will encourage some residents to use public transport over short car trips and provide others with much-needed access to shops and other amenities.

The first release of homes at Miller Homes’ Kingshill Park neighbourhood will launch this autumn and will comprise 70 homes, including two to five-bedroom homes and two-bedroom bungalows.

Commenting on the benefits of the latest investments into the Leicestershire community, area sales director for Miller Homes Midlands, Alastair Parsons, said:

“We are always looking to enhance existing communities when creating our new neighbourhoods, and contributing funds to local healthcare, education, transport and recreation is an integral part of this.

“I’m delighted that Stoke Golding’s younger residents, in particular, will soon benefit from the planned investment into the village. Education is the cornerstone of any young person’s development and I am confident that the education providers within the local area will utilise the funds to create an enhanced learning experience for their pupils.

“Further to this, the financial boost to the recreational facilities at Hall Drive Park and medical centres, as well as improved accessibility to public transport, will also have a positive impact on the entire community. 

“Situated in the heart of the country, our new Kingshill Park neighbourhood offers the very best of village life, with the benefit of fantastic transport links to major cities and towns. Known for its historic roots and charming market towns, this pocket of Leicestershire is the ideal location for individuals, couples and families looking for the perfect balance between town and country living.”
