The MP for High Peak, Robert Largan, was recently welcomed to Barratt Homes’ Midshires Meadow development in Whaley Bridge for a guided tour with the developer’s directors.

Mr Largan was invited to the development on Linglongs Road to view the homes being built following its recent opening, and was accompanied by writer and broadcaster, Edwina Currie. Mr Largan and Ms Currie were able to learn more about the exciting plans for Midshires Meadow from Barratt Homes Manchester’s Managing Director, Neil Goodwin.

Having been elected as the MP for High Peak in the 2019 General Election, Mr Largan has been focused on securing investment for the local community and new opportunities, while protecting local jobs.

He said: “It was good to visit the Midshires Meadows site and learn more about the affordable home plans. It was also useful to discuss the traffic management plan and flood prevention measures, as well as take a look at the steps taken to protect trees on site, which I know is very important for many local residents.””

As part of the Section 106 planning agreement with High Peak Borough Council, Barratt Homes Manchester is investing £330,000 into Whaley Bridge, and the finances will be used to support services and improve facilities for both new and existing residents in and around the town.

The housebuilder also typically sources local contractors and subcontractors, and a total of 214 new jobs have been created at Midshires Meadow.

Neil Goodwin, Managing Director of Barratt Homes Manchester, said: “We were delighted to show Mr Largan and Edwina Currie around our Midshires Meadow development in Whaley Bridge, as well as discussing the investments made by Barratt Homes to the local community.

“As the UK’s leading housebuilder, we are determined to play our part in the county’s economic recovery and to build better and greener than before, while establishing a new community at the development in Whaley Bridge.”

Edwina Currie, former MP for South Derbyshire Constituency, said: “I was very impressed with the quality of site management, with the range of houses on offer on what will be a fabulous estate, and delighted to hear that they are already selling well.”

Midshires Meadow is surrounded by the Peak District countryside, providing plenty of open space for those that enjoy the outdoors, as well as a tranquil environment for those looking to escape big city living in exchange for a more laidback life in the country. The development will feature 107 homes, including 32 affordable homes for the local community.

Midshires Meadow currently has a number of four bedroom homes available with prices starting from £398,995.
