Midlands Estate Agents: New landmark complex causes a stir

Rushden Lakes a development that has divided a county for years has been given the green light by Secretary of State Eric Pickles. Local estate agents say the £50 million leisure and retail development, proposed by LXB Properties at the Skew Bridge brown field site, will create a fresh demand for properties for sale in the Midlands. The news follows a lengthy public enquiry, despite East Northamptonshire councillors voting unanimously to grant planning permission for the development back in October 2012. Rushden Lakes will cover a 244 acre plot and will offer 465,000 square feet of mixed use space, with M&S already confirmed as an anchor store. The developers estimate over 2,000 direct and indirect jobs will be created, with a projected 3 million annual visitors once the complex is complete. Geoff Morgan, the Director at Winkworth's Northampton estate agents office, says any development that brings employment opportunities and enhanced facilities always fuels the sales and lettings market: "Midlands property has been popular for some time but the new development at Skew Bridge will really shine a spotlight on East Northamptonshire. The development promises a hotel, waterfront restaurants, a crèche, a boat house, a leisure club and a lakeside visitors' centre. These types of facilities keep people's interest in an area high while attracting business and new residents. Rushden Lakes is an exciting addition to the East Northamptonshire landscape and we look forward to helping movers secure a new home in the area ahead of completion. Winkworth also expects a demand for property to rent in the Midlands while the project is under construction, with an influx of workers starting on site in the very near future." Midlands property has been enjoying a buoyant period for some time, with property portal Rightmove indicating that house prices in the East Midlands rose at a rate of 6% in the last 12 months. "It just goes to show that house price appreciation is not confined to London and the Home Counties. The East Midlands saw growth that surpassed almost all of its neighbouring regions and we're happy to say properties for sale in the Midlands are now realising their true potential," adds Morgan. "We have a varied selection of houses for sale in East Midlands, with a wide selection of property types, from new build homes through to period conversions and purposebuilt flats. The rental market here is equally as fluid, with flats to rent in East Midlands remaining a popular choice with firsttime tenants." Anyone interested in property to rent or property for sale in the region should call their local Winkworth estate agents in the Midlands today. The sales and lettings teams are ready to help buyers, sellers, tenants and property investors from across the region, as well as those looking to relocate to the area.
