Leading North West homebuilder, Barratt Homes Manchester, has agreed a deal with Property Capital to develop the residential element of the former Leyland Vehicle Test Track in Leyland.

Barratt Manchester, which has more than 20 live developments across the North West, is now actively developing a detailed planning application of around 950 new homes from its award-winning 2016 range for the scheme, on Aston Way, after South Ribble Council approved the master plan.

The development work, to include a new school and medical Centre will underpin around 1,900 jobs over the lifetime of the scheme, including local contractors, as well as training opportunities for apprentices in the construction industry.
