Developer’s 550 jobs boost

Housebuilder Barratt Homes has announced plans to open three new sites, creating 275 new homes across the local area.

The new sites will underpin about 550 local jobs.

The new developments include Lake View in Corby, St Margaret’s View in Crick and The Brackens in Brackley. The expansion plans follow a strong recovery in the housing market following the launch of the Help to Buy scheme.
