Oadby Grange


The Oadby Masterplan

The proposed design and layout has taken shape by following opportunities and constraints of the site.  Analysis has informed the vision for the site, which has enabled the creation of unique spaces, accessible to members of both the existing and new community.

The residential development will deliver 140 new homes, with a mix of affordable and private housing, ranging from 1-2 bed flats, 2-4 bed affordable housing, and 1 bed maisonettes, 2-4 bed private housing.

The development is surrounded by a green wedge and is connected to the country park with pedestrian routes through landscaped areas.

The proposals for the site currently include:

The scheme could deliver up to 232 new homes.

140 of these are proposed to be a mix of 1-4 bed dwellings

70 extra care apartments and 22 specialist supported living dwellings are also proposed.

A central village green with a wildlife pond that creates a focus for the new place

Strong connections to the country park through foot and cycle ways providing access for existing residents and the new community

The dwellings will be set in a high quality landscaped series of spaces, along with a new community building / visitor centre connected with the country park

A highly connected network of attractive streets and spaces, lined with trees and swale corridors that link to existing and new wildlife habitats

New community facilities such as the mobility hub that contains EV charging points, cycle/scooter parking and acts as a key node to reduce the need for future use of cars in the residential area, but enables good pedestrian access
