Midland based Godwin Developments has acquired a strategically placed site in the town of Shepshed in Leicestershire.

The five acre site in Ashby Road lies close to the Shepshed Interchange, Junction 23 on the M1, providing good links to the north and south.

Godwin’s group development director Stuart Pratt said: “This is a key strategic site which we have purchased unconditionally.

“It is well located with the centre of Loughborough less than 15 minutes away by car as well as a key connector road from the M1 and M42.

“This further reinforces Godwin’s ability to acquire and purchase a site within the landowner’s timescales. We have continued to grow our acquisitions programme within the last 18 months and look forward to announcing further acquisitions in the coming weeks and months.”

Historically, a centre for the wool trade, Shepshed has a population of around 14,000 and is handily placed for businesses and commuters. East Midlands Airport is less than five miles away and Birmingham International Airport is 35 miles along the M42. Rail commuters are served by the nearby Loughborough Station.

Ben Darlow of Law firm Shakespeare Martineau acted for Godwin Developments. Sam Pancholi at Freeths acted for the landowner.
