David Wilson Homes, part of Barratt Developments PLC, will be investing an additional £6.8 million as part of the planning agreement for its new development in North Newbury.

The funding, which totals £6,841,154, forms part of the S106 agreement for the Donnington Heights community located on Love Lane and will be used to support services and improve facilities for both new and existing residents in and around Newbury.

Donnington Heights will deliver a collection of 222 properties that are set to appeal to first time buyers and growing families alike.

Among the investment is over £4.5m towards the construction of a brand new primary school, in addition to a £921,245 contribution towards bus services and over £700,000 towards the improvements of the Robin Hood roundabout.

The £6.8m investment follows the funding of £9.2m as part of the homebuilder’s Newbury Racecourse development, plus a combined £795,621 for its Cherry Blossom Meadow and Willows Grange communities, totalling more than £16m pounds worth of funding in Newbury.

Campbell Gregg, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said: "Investing in local communities is an extremely important part of building a new housing development. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the local community and strive to support it wherever we can.

"As our Donnington Heights development progresses, (...) we will not only be contributing to the area financially, but the construction process will underpin 444 jobs for the local area."
