Views sought on new housing proposals in Narborough and Enderby

The public’s views are being sought on a vision for a potential new community in Narborough and Enderby, which would provide hundreds of new homes.

The site, called Hayes Gardens, includes Carlton Park, owned by Santander, and Enderby Golf Course. The golf course is primarily owned by Blaby District Council with part of the course being owned by Santander.

Leicester Time: Views sought on new housing proposals in Narborough and Enderby

The site is being proposed for inclusion in the Council’s new Local Plan which will be consulted on later this year and which will guide how the district is developed up until 2041.

If accepted into the Local Plan, Hayes Gardens could become a sustainable new community with up to 800 homes along with public open space, play areas, community facilities, and park land.

The inclusion of Hayes Gardens in the revised Local Plan would contribute to meeting the district’s housing needs. National planning requirements mean the Council is expected to deliver 687 homes a year up to 2036.

Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, said: “Working with Santander we see Hayes Gardens as a model sustainable community. In addition to providing much needed housing, this development will look to provide more publicly accessible green space and biodiversity. Improved pedestrian, cycling and vehicle access routes could also help ease the long-standing congestion issues in Enderby, particularly around Mill Lane.

“This work is in its early stages, the suitability of the land for housing will need to be confirmed in our new Local Plan process. We are committed to there being extensive public engagement and giving local people every opportunity to express their views.”

Nick Roberts, Head of Property, Santander UK said: “We have been working closely with Colliers to consider options for surplus land at our Carlton Park site. Since 2021, we have consolidated our office space into one of five office buildings on the Campus, letting three of the buildings to tenants, with one remaining building being marketed to let.  We want to play our part in supporting the local plan, enabling more housing and contributing to the wider local community in which we operate.”

Independent consultants Meeting Place will be carrying out public engagement, including local drop-in events in May and June, as part of the proposals to include the site in the Local Plan. Details for these events are provided below:

  • Wednesday 22 May, 2-7pm – Enderby Civic Centre
  • Tuesday 4 June, 2-7pm – Council Chamber, Blaby District Council
  • Saturday 15 June, 10am-3pm – Enderby Leisure Centre
