Welcome to our vision for
Hayes Gardens

We are inviting the public to help shape the draft vision for a proposed new development in Narborough and Enderby known as Hayes Gardens.

The 57-hectare (141 acre) site, consisting of land within Carlton Park and including Enderby Golf Course, is being promoted by landowners, Santander and Blaby District Council, for inclusion within the new Blaby Local Plan.

The proposed vision for Hayes Gardens represents an exceptional opportunity to integrate a vibrant, new sustainable community seamlessly with the existing surroundings. The proposals are still in the very early stages and we want to use this as an opportunity to engage with the community and get your input.
