New cash will help crucial projects

Evesham Editorial 19th Oct, 2019   0

A HOUSING developer has invested more than £230,000 into improving the area around its Plum Tree Walk development in Pershore.

As part of its commitment to supporting local communities, Taylor Wimpey has put the six-figure sum forward in an agreement with council chiefs.

More than £150,000 will go towards off-site sporting opportunities in Pershore. Thousands will also be pledged towards the provision of sustainable transport in the town, including £69,000 for improvements to the local highways network and a further £5,000 for cycling infrastructure.

Alongside planning contributions, Taylor Wimpey has supported several community initiatives in the area, such as a £500 donation to Pinvin Primary School’s charity masquerade ball and £500 towards a model Viking longboat at Cherry Orchard First School.

Anne Wallace, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said: “We’re so proud of the contributions we’ve made towards the local community around Pershore and our Plum Tree Walk development.

“We want to ensure we are giving something back to the local communities in which we build. It’s a real privilege to be involved in projects and initiatives around our developments.”
