Taylor Wimpey hopes for Lark Grange 'floral legacy'
A housebuilder is pinning its hopes on flower-planting to boost local perception of a 100-home development.
Taylor Wimpey is now seeing 2,250 daffodil bulbs planted at Lark Grange, in Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds, come into blossom.
The East Anglia company said this was part of their Proud campaign to promote biodiversity in their housing developments around the region.
“We are proud to show our commitment and pride to leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which we build our new homes,” said sales director Caroline Carter.
Lark Grange, situated off Mount Road, was the first part of a 550-home scheme from Taylor Wimpey in Moreton Hall.
The project was met with some negative responses, when first announced in 2013, with residents concerned about potential noise levels.
Ms Carter said: “We want to leave a place that both our customers and other local residents will enjoy long after we have finished building. We hope that the bulbs will grow year after year into a lovely display that the people of Bury St Edmunds will continue to admire.”
The development contains two, three, four and five bedroom homes. These are now on the market - costing from £250,000 to £610,000.
