New village centre date

THE NEW village centre in Kings Warren, Red Lodge, is expected to be completed by Easter next year.

Work is expected to commence on the six-unit village centre in July or August and will be completed by next Easter.

Forest Heath district councillor Roger Dicker said: “I think Crest Nicholson has realised that if the infrastructure is there it will be able to sell the homes.

“I’m over the moon that some positive dates for the development for the village centre to start and be completed have been announced.”

Crest Nicholson has also told Forest Heath District Council that it has entered into negotiations to transfer the freehold for the village centre units.
