South Wigston development on show today
An exhibition detailing a 120 home development in South Wigston is attracting scores of people.
Barratt Homes plan to build the two, three and four bedroom houses at a site off Pochin's Bridge Road.
The project will also include sports facilities, such as a full size football pitch, which will be run by Oadby and Wigston Borough Council.
Barratt's staff are at South Leicestershire College, in Blaby Road, today until 6pm to discuss the proposals with members of the public.

The developer will put in an outline planning application to Oadby and Wigston Borough Council in February.
Resident Kevin Pearson, 45, lives next to the proposed site.
He said: "We're not against the homes, we've always suspected that they'd build some sooner or later.
"The only problem we have is that our garden would back onto the gable of one of the houses.
"We're used to seeing the rolling fields behind our house and if the development goes ahead as stated on the masterplan then we'd lose that."
