A Place To Play
New Lubbesthorpe will have some of the largest, most biodiverse and most attractive new parks created in the wider urban area in the last 50 years.
We are laying out over 320 acres of new parks.
Our new parks and facilities will provide children’s play areas, places to kick a ball, fly a kite and throw a Frisbee; a place to walk the dog, to cycle and even ride a horse; we are already planting over 3,000 new trees in the first phase of new parkland, and we have laid out a sustainable drainage system of permanent and temporary ponds, that will enhance the local wildlife. For every tree or hedge we can’t avoid losing, we are replacing twofold.
Our parks, open spaces and facilities will be managed by the Land Trust, which is a UK charity with many years of experience of managing parkland and open spaces. The Land Trust will ensure you have a safe, clean, green and attractive environment for all to enjoy.
Residents will have a stake in the stewardship of this fabulous place, helping to maintain exceptional quality of the landscaping, green spaces, play areas and public areas so you can be confident that your neighbourhood is the best-kept in Leicestershire.
With Blaby Distrct Council, we are planning a major new leisure centre as part of the secondary school, with an indoor sports hall, gyms and studios, netball and tennis courts and all-weather pitches, creating a major new sports facility for the local community.
