Welcome to the Money Hill project website

Introduction to the Money Hill Project, the Money Hill Consortium and Local Plan

This website outlines our current proposals for the development of land to the north of Nottingham Road and east of Smisby Road, known as Money Hill.

Money Hill has been identified by North West Leicestershire District Council as a preferred location for future housing growth in Ashby-de-la-Zouch in the Council’s Sustainability Appraisal, which supports the Local Plan.

Our Vision for Ashby-de-la-Zouch includes:

  • The delivery of 605 dwellings;
  • The provision of a 60 unit extra care centre;
  • The provision of a site for a primary school, comprising a 1.5ha site for a single form entry school with capacity to be enlarged to 2.1ha to provide for a two form entry school;
  • The provision of other facilities and services to ensure the proposed development provides a sustainable mix of uses, including a nursery school; a community hall; neighbourhood retail; and public open space;
  • The provision of a main vehicular access from the A511;
  • The provision of a limited secondary point of vehicular access onto Nottingham Road, with access being limited to no more than 150 dwellings (including the extra care facility) and an ‘in-only’ access to the car park;
  • The provision of a number of pedestrian and cycle accesses to the surrounding area; and
    Enhancements to the fabric of the Ivanhoe Way footpath, with provision made for an alternative enhanced alignment to increase patronage.

The project will be delivered by the Money Hill Consortium has a proven track record of delivering new homes and communities in the area local to Ashby.
