Ashton Green is a landmark sustainable urban extension scheme to the north of Leicester. In total, it is set to provide up to 3,000 new homes together with community and health facilities, employment land, retail space and approximately 13 acres of green space.

Phase two of the scheme, comprising 307 private residential and affordable properties, has been approved and work is scheduled to commence. The new homes have been designed in distinctive character clusters that specifically reference Leicester’s heritage; the Victorian villa, Edwardian terrace and village street. Open green spaces and wildlife corridors both integrate and create a natural flow through the development.
