More than 550 jobs underpinned in Mickleover as new community is created

More than 550 jobs are being underpinned at Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ development in Mickleover as a new community is being created.

Once completed, the development will have provided a total of 288 quality homes in the area, which are suitable for first time buyers, growing families and downsizers.

As the homebuilder largely employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen, local businesses are already directly benefitting from this.

Along with supporting the 576 jobs, the developer will be contributing around £2 million pounds in and around the suburb.    

The funding forms part of the planning agreement for the new development and will be used to support services and improve facilities for both new and existing residents.

Chris Southgate, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said:

“Our development in Mickleover will underpin over 550 jobs across its build life with the people we will employ to build and sell the homes and this is fantastic news for people living in Derbyshire.

“As well as the new jobs that will be created, this new development will provide desperately needed new homes for local people at a time when there is a chronic shortage of housing.”

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, added:

“As the development progresses we will not only be contributing to the area financially, but also in terms the quality homes we are building.

“The area will also receive a significant boost for local retailers as people who move into the development will also be spending their wages locally, which is exactly what this area needs.”

The new development, located on Etwall Road, offers a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom Barratt and David Wilson homes to suit the needs of a range of homebuyers.

Residents can benefit from being in close proximity of a range of local amenities as well as being just a short drive away from Derby city centre.
