Garendon Park (formerly West of Loughborough) Development

Due to essential maintenance being carried out by Pay360, customers may experience online payment disruptions on Sunday July 5 between 4:30-6:30am and Tuesday July 7 between 6-7am. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at

The Garendon Park Development (sometimes called the West of Loughborough Sustainable Urban extension) is a new development of 3,200 new houses, 16 hectares of land for employment use, a new local centre with shops and community facilities, two new primary schools, sports facilities, open spaces, play areas and sites for travellers and travelling show people. 

There will be a new link road through the development that joins the A512 with the A6 via two new roundabout junctions and improvements to roads in the area including the upgrade of the A512 between Snells Nook Lane and the M1 motorway to a dual carriageway.

To the south of the housing area the historic Garendon Park and its monuments will be restored and opened up to the public via a series of approved routes.
