A housebuilder has revealed it will be developing a new site in Crick which will have 135 homes.

Barratt Homes is to open St Margaret’s View, off Main Road close to the A428 in the village, alongside two other schemes in Brackley and Corby.

The new sites will underpin around 550 local jobs in the local area.

The homebuilder predominately employs local sub-contractors and tradesmen – so the firm says local businesses and people will benefit directly from the jobs.

Alison Raine, sales director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “We have seen demand for new homes expand very quickly over the year and the new sites we are opening mean that there will be more choice for local buyers.

“And it’s good news for the local economy as in addition to the local construction jobs underpinned by building the new homes, the local people who move into the new housing will also spend their wages locally.

“This means a significant boost for local retailers as well. It’s exactly what this area needs.”
