Rugby MP Mark Pawsey has visited the Bloor Homes development at Eden Park where hundreds of new homes are being built.

Work began on building the new homes last year, as part of the Rugby Gateway project, now known as Eden Park.

The 300 acre site is on the northern edge of the town and will be transformed over the next 10 years into a thriving new community.

Vanessa Macnee, sales director of Bloor Homes, said: “We were very pleased to welcome Mark Pawsey to view the homes at Eden Park. We enjoyed giving him a guided tour of the development and our newly furnished show homes. Rugby is becoming a great commuter spot so there is an increasing need for more affordable homes. It was a great opportunity for Mark to see the new development first hand.”

Eden Park will feature a new primary school, nursery, health centre, shops and include affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.

Large areas of public open space will be incorporated into the design and much of the existing woodland on site will be retained. 36 hectares of land is allocated for employment, anticipated to create 1,800 new jobs. Major new infrastructure will link the development to Rugby town centre and the surrounding motorway network.

Mr Pawsey said: “Rugby is a great area to buy a home, especially for commuting professionals who might have been priced out of living in London. I was especially impressed by the different schemes and house types Bloor Homes is offering to help potential and existing homeowners find their new home as quickly as possible. I wish them all the best and I hope the local community will visit these fantastic show homes.”
