Construction of a new canal side residential development off Queen’s Drive in Nantwich is now well underway, and to mark the launch of its new show homes ahead of Leap Day on February 29, local house builder, Barratt Homes, is offering to pop open the champers for ladies planning on popping the question.
Five star house builder Barratt Homes will launch the new show homes at Malbank Waters this weekend, unveiling the first of its 134 properties. When complete, the development will comprise of a total of 268 homes, half of which are to be sold by Barratt. Developing partner, Bovis Homes, will sell the other half.
Commenting on the Leap Year themed show home launch, Barratt Homes Sales Director, Michaela Lancaster, said: “We thought it would be a fun way of celebrating the sales launch; Leap Year only comes along every four years and what better way to toast both than with a glass of bubbly on the house? The homes are perfect for young couples planning to start a family – let’s see if we get any proposals over the weekend!”
Thirty percent of the homes will be set aside for affordable rent or sale to ensure local people are able to access the new properties. Alongside the much needed mix of new homes, the house builders have also contributed a sum of over £700k to Cheshire East Council towards the provision of community amenities, including:
- Canal tow path contribution of £53,888
- Education (primary) contribution of £292,850
- Footpath & cycle path £50,000
- Level crossing £10,000
- Public transport £50,000

In addition to the economic boost to the community, Malbank Waters has been carefully designed to protect and enhance the natural wildlife habitat surrounding the new homes, with the planting of new, and maintenance of existing native hedges, as well as the creation of wetlands and wildflower meadows within the open spaces.
