Bloor Homes starts work on 75 home development in Uppingham

Construction work is progressing well on Bloor Homes' The Elms at Uppingham development, which will consist of 75 new homes in Rutland.

Bloor Homes has begun work on the first properties at The Elms, a new development being built on land off Leicester Road.
The Elms will feature a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom homes and areas of open space on a 3.29 hectare site to the west of the town centre. 
Of the 75 homes at the development, 49 will be sold on the open market, comprising a range of three and four-bedroom properties, and 26 will be provided as affordable housing.
Paul Degg, Regional Managing Director of Bloor Homes Midlands, said: “We’re delighted to have started construction work on this long-awaited and much-needed new development in Uppingham.
“As we outlined in our plans, this development will make a significant contribution to meeting the demand for both private and affordable housing in Uppingham, and following extensive consultation with local authorities and residents, we are confident that The Elms will be a positive addition to the town. 
“The range of homes here will cater for different types of buyers, from families looking to upsize to buyers taking their first steps onto the property ladder. 
“We are looking forward to seeing the development take shape and to welcoming visitors to the site in June for our showhome launch, with first completions taking place in July.”
