The Mayor of Leicester takes an exclusive tour of Wolsey Island


We invited the Mayor of Leicester, Sir Peter Soulsby (top centre), to take an exclusive tour of our eagerly-awaited Wolsey Island development.

The visit saw the mayor taking a guided tour of the Marketing Suite and the stunning two-bedroom Mitchell showhome at Wolsey Island, which have been giving prospective purchasers an insight into the lifestyle opportunities they could be enjoying at this exciting new development.

Situated on the site of the former Wolsey factory buildings between the east bank of the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal, the development has given a new lease of life to an area that has been central to the city’s cultural heritage for more than 100 years.

Among the members of Westleigh’s senior management team present on the day were Managing Director Ian Jones (top right) and Property Director Matt Moore (top left), who personally showed Sir Peter around the development.

Ian said: “We were delighted to welcome Sir Peter to take a tour of our highly-anticipated Wolsey Island development.

“Once complete, the development will provide almost 200 new homes to property-seekers in a wide range of circumstances, and we are thrilled to be breathing new life into a part of Leicester with such a rich and significant industrial history.

“On behalf of Westleigh, I would like to say a big thank you to Sir Peter for all his support.”

Sir Peter said: “Westleigh Homes is making tremendous progress and this new housing development is really starting to take shape.

“Leicester boasts some beautiful riverside settings but until recently, new investment in these areas has been slow to come forward.

“These new homes will serve as a catalyst for more new development in these areas and help bring more of the city’s waterside back into use as new places to live and work.

“We are excited to be supporting this development with a new Sock Island bridge which will provide a safe and attractive new riverside route for pedestrians and cyclists.”

Once complete, Wolsey Island will deliver 188 new homes for house-hunters in Leicester, with 67 of the properties allocated for private sale.

The showhome at Wolsey Island is now open daily between 10am and 5pm. To book a tour, call the Marketing Suite on 0330 058 0911.
