Project Detail

New Lubbesthorpe Sustainable Urban Extension

Infrastructure Project of the Year Award 2018 Winner

The £40m New Lubbesthorpe is a Sustainable Urban Extension which will eventually have 4,250 homes.

Its infrastructure includes a new bridge over the M1, new road network connecting Beggars Lane to Meridian Way, foul drainage system including pumping stations, sustainable urban drainage scheme including swales and ponds, and public open space.

The first homes have been built, with 150 already occupied, and construction of a new primary school has begun.

Project Overview

New Lubbesthorpe is the only Leicestershire Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE) to be started and is now delivering much needed new homes.

Granted outline planning consent in 2014, the project will include more than 320 acres of new parks.

The first element of sustainable urban drainage has walkways, pedestrian footbridges and landscaping including tree planting.

The infrastructure includes a bridge across the M1 and the opening of Tay Road, which links Meridian Way to Beggars Lane. Both opened in July 2017.
