The Spittal


Castle Donington, Leicestershire



Construction Value

Estimated at £5m


13 large bespoke family dwellings


The properties are designed to take full advantage of their position on an attractive wooded slope, with extensive views across playing fields to the north.

The scheme includes a number of landscape enhancements to help promote biodiversity and safeguard the setting of the development - these include habitat creation measures, extensive new tree planting, and natural swales with marginal planting in combination with new sustainable drainage features.

In addition, a new public footpath is proposed, allowing access through the site for the wider community, to the local sport and recreation facilities.

Planning permission for a further property has recently been secured and work will commence on site imminently.
