Redrow is launching a new community fund with a budget of £2,500 for residential groups or projects.
The housebuilder had already invested over £760,000 into the Asquith Park housing development with funding allocated towards schools, healthcare, sports facilities, libraries and public art.
Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), explained:
“As we celebrate the first anniversary of Asquith Park, we’d like to invite the local community to suggest projects that they think we might be able to help with and we’ll endeavour to provide assistance where we can. We’d like to help lots of smaller projects rather than spend all of the cash in one area.”
“We’re also keen to get involved with the local community and are inviting residents to suggest causes or projects that could benefit from our support. In other areas we’ve provided new kitchen appliances for a hospice, sponsored sports teams and offered labour and materials to provide safe walkways and gates at primary schools.”
Located off Milton Road, Asquith Park is a 64-home development featuring designs from the Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection.
The scheme includes 25 affordable homes, which amounts to 39% of the development. Six of these properties will be offered through a shared ownership scheme with 19 homes available to rent.
The remaining 39 properties are available for private sale and include a mix of three, four and five-bedroom designs with current prices from £529,950.
Those wishing to nominate a project for Redrow to consider can pick up a form at the marketing suite at Asquith Park from January 30.
Nominations must be submitted by 27 February 2016.
