Jelson Homes

Development Economics Limited recently concluded a review of the economy of Leicestershire for Jelson Homes to help make the case for increased housing supply in the sub-region.

The review provided a comprehensive assessment of recent growth trends revealed by ONS and other data, and also a review of economic forecasts for the area produced by a range of independent sources.

A key objective of the assignment was to understand the potential implications for future housing demand driven by the decision of the UK Government to give the go-ahead for the East Midlands Gateway, a new strategic rail freight distribution centre near East Midlands Airport of national significance, which has the potential create around 7,500 jobs directly and a further 2,000 jobs via supply chain and local multiplier effects.
