Buckshaw Village is becoming a more appealing place to live by the day as more facilities open.

Barratt Homes has been building on the site for 11 years and has watched the

area go from the former site of the Royal Ordnance Factory, to a thriving community with a high achieving school, active community centre, its own railway station and plenty of shops.

Now an Italian restaurant, a bakery, Indian take away, coffee shop, letting agency and a charity shop can be added to the list.

This means that everything that residents may need is right on the doorstep making Buckshaw the perfect place to live.

Stephen Grant, senior sales manager for Barratt Manchester, said: “It has been amazing to see the transformation of this site and what Buckshaw has to offer residents is really second to none.

“When the Prime Minister visited Buckshaw Village, he was very impressed with the transformation.

“With new shops and restaurants opening, it really is a wonderful place to live.”

With plenty of green space, the village is a great place for families and with schemes such as Help to Buy available, it is also ideal for first time buyers.

Help to Buy is the new Government backed scheme that allows you to buy a Barratt home with a four per cent deposit and 76 per cent mortgage.

The remaining 20 per cent is funded by a deferred Government loan.

Barratt Group sold 12,637 homes last year, making it the biggest house builder by volume in Britain.

Last year, site managers working for Barratt Group won the highest number of NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards for an eighth consecutive year.
