No don’t worry you are quite safe, this is not news of an escapee from the West Midlands Safari Park turning up in a beautiful Worcestershire village. It is news of more improvements coming soon to the south of the County, on the doorstep of the prestigious Saxon Meadows development, by award winning local developer Lioncourt Homes, adding to the appeal of this very popular location.

This week the Department of Transport gave the green light for Worcestershire’s new railway station at Worcestershire Parkway. A spokesman for the County Council was keen to point out "The new station will improve journey times for Worcestershire's rail commuters, cut travel times to and from London and improve links to other major cities. Worcestershire Parkway is going to provide extra rail capacity for the county and importantly more car parking spaces for our train travellers. Given Worcestershire already has one of the fastest growing economies in the country, the new Parkway station will help us to maintain that growth and open the county up to new markets."

The new station, located under five miles from Kempsey, at Norton just east of M5 Junction 7, will include 500 car park spaces and construction is due to commence later this year and is scheduled to be completed and opened winter 2018/2019.

Saxon Meadows offers a selection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom family homes located in the picturesque village of Kempsey within the Malvern Hills District of Worcestershire County. Kempsey has all the attraction of a small village yet benefits from the facilities available in the nearby City of Worcester.

The village has a great selection of local amenities including friendly taverns, a small selection of local shops and a variety of sports clubs. Worcester is also on the doorstep with easy access to a wider range of facilities comprising supermarkets, cinemas, modern shops and a wide range of pubs and restaurants. Worcester is home to the University of Worcester and also has two additional colleges and a number of exceptional schools.

Lynne Gardner, Senior Sales Manager of Lioncourt Homes said “We always knew what Lioncourt Homes had to offer in Kempsey would be a great place to live and call home. This news will undoubtedly add to the appeal and we expect the remaining 19 homes will soon be snapped up”.

Matt Nicol, Managing Director of Nicol & Co Estate Agents, said “We are delighted to be marketing another prestigious Lioncourt scheme, their quality and design is first class. We expect this latest news to increase demand even more so suggest any potential buyers get in touch with us quickly. We can handle all your enquiries on the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme, Part Exchange options and even help Mortgage arrangements if required”.
