The first residents have now moved in at Bloor Homes' Bramcote Manor development, on the former Bramcote Hospital site.

Malcolm and Claire Livett have picked up the keys to their four-bedroom detached house at Bloor Homes’ Bramcote Manor development after moving to the area from the South Coast.
They are the first buyers to take up residence at the luxury 28-home development, which is taking shape on land north of Lutterworth Road.
The couple have relocated to Warwickshire for Malcolm’s work, and looked at now fewer than 13 different housing developments in the area.
But they said Bramcote Manor’s rural location and exclusive nature made it stand out from the rest.
Malcolm, a clay modeller based in Longford near Coventry, said: “We wanted somewhere that wasn’t too far from work and that was in the countryside, not in a built up area, and this ticked all the boxes. What we particularly liked about Bramcote Manor is that it is quite a small development of only 28 houses, and it is just a 15-minute drive to work in the morning.”
Housewife Claire said: “Where we lived before was a lovely Sussex village but this is even more rural. We are surrounded by fields of sheep and cows and we have got canal boats going past. It is just absolutely lovely.
“We looked at about 13 different housebuilders and this is one of the best developments being built. The house is perfect for us and the quality of the build and finish is superb. We particularly like the kitchen-diner with French doors to the garden and the spacious lounge.
“We have also been really impressed with the service we have received from Bloor. The sales advisors have been amazing and the site managers Harry Bramwell and Ken Baker could not have been more helpful.”
Bloor Homes was granted planning permission in September last year to demolish the derelict former Bramcote Hospital and transform the site into a new housing development, with work beginning soon afterwards.
