New play area opens on our former Eden development in Waingroves, Derbyshire!

A new play area has opened on our Eden development after the completion of a collaborative project with Codnor Parish Council.

The play area and open space was unveiled on Tuesday 10th December in the Derbyshire village of Waingroves at the site of our former Eden development, following ratification at a Parish Council meeting on Monday the 9th.

This new outdoor space brings plenty of opportunities for local residents to get active. It has been in progress for a number of years and is now open thanks to the support of Codnor Parish Council.

At just over 7-acres, the open space has transformed a patch of land on our former development and is home to a range of play equipment including swings, a seesaw, spinning saucer, climbing frame with slide, a number of litter bins and benches. We were delighted to be able to officially unveil the space at a special ceremony on Tuesday – with Chair of the Parish Council David Jowett cutting the ribbon.

“After the success of our Eden development, this play area is the icing on the cake for local residents because it gives families somewhere to enjoy the outdoors and come together,” says our Land and Technical Manager, Tom Broster.

“As part of our Section 106 obligations, we always invest significant time, money and resources into the communities within which we build in order to make a difference locally. We hope that this new space will give children somewhere to find enjoyment and encourage them to get active in the fresh air away from the distractions of screens and things that generally keep them indoors.” adds Tom. 

Codnor Parish Council Clerk, Andrew Sharpe, is delighted that the parish council was able to step in and facilitate the opening of this valuable community asset.

“This space will be fantastic for the local community and provides some great facilities for families to enjoy. We’ve enjoyed working in partnership with Peveril Homes on this project and look forward to working closely again on other schemes in the near future.” says Andrew.

We are continuing to build homes across Derbyshire with our Holborn Place development located just a couple of miles away from Eden – bringing a range of 3 and 4-bedroom homes to Codnor with prices starting from £207,995.
