PHASE 1 NOW FULLY LET
Buckshaw Village is an award winning new urban development, set in the heart of Lancashire which will provide in excess of 4,000 new homes as well as a primary school, health centre and outdoor sport facilities. In addition, it is estimated that the 80 acre business park adjacent will eventually accommodate approximately 377,000 m² (4,058,028 ft²) of commercial floor space with a workforce of some 9,000 people.
The development is perfectly located for access for all access to all the North West being two miles from Chorley and Leyland, around 10 miles from Preston city centre and less than 30 miles from Manchester. The scheme benefits from excellent road connections lying between the M6 and M61 motorways, with a direct connection to junction 28 of the M6 and junction 8 of the M61 together with easy access to the M55, M65 and M62. There are also plans underway for a new railway station within Buckshaw Village itself which will provide a direct service onto Preston-Manchester (and Manchester Airport) line.
