The housebuilder constructing 195 homes in Sileby has now provided almost £1m towards local services as the development nears completion.
Miller Homes has contributed more than £930,000 towards a number of key local facilities in the Sileby area as part of the Section 106 agreement which formed part of the developer’s planning consent for its Highgrove Fields development, off Seagrave Road.
Construction work is drawing to a close at the development, which comprises 136 private homes – with only one remaining to be purchased – and a further 59 homes provided as affordable housing.
Miller Homes has contributed £566,233 towards local education in Sileby, while more than £205,000 has been provided for public open space, and a further £121,423 has been put forward for NHS England.
Alastair Parsons, area sales director for Miller Homes, said: “Our development in Sileby has formed a key part of our roster over the past few years and it is with a great sense of pride that we are rapidly reaching the point of completion for the development as a whole.
“As part of our planning agreement with the local authority, not only did Miller Homes commit to the delivery of 195 high quality new homes, we also made a promise to contribute almost £1m via our S106 agreement to directly fund local services in and around Sileby, to support the wider community as part of Miller Homes’ pledge to make our people and the planet prosper.
“We have positively impacted schools, health services, transport and highways, and libraries within the local area, in addition to funding public open spaces for the benefit of everyone, over and above the open spaces we have created at Highgrove Fields.
“The development has quickly become its own community within Sileby, and it’s great to see happy customers living in a Miller property. Our focus is on completing the remainder of the site within the timeframe we’ve set out and then moving on to allow our new residents to enjoy living in their homes for many years to come.”
