Despite the global economic turndown the North West Of England has seen growth in recent years due to strong economic fundamentals and government and private initiatives that have generated jobs and brought investor confidence back to the region. Chorley is a good example of an area in the North West that has turned things around, especially in the manufacturing, services and IT sectors, all of which have seen growth of late.
Chorley Buckshaw Village is a government initiative established with the aim of creating a hub for business and recreational development in the North West. It is a residential and industrial area between Chorley and Leyland in Lancashire and one of the largest urban development sites in this part of England. The development is will include thousands of new homes and a new railway station, making it an attractive place to find work and relocate.
One of the commercial centres within the Buckshaw Village development is the Revolution Park, situated to the southern end of the village. The park is a 128-acre high quality logistics and industrial centre with excellent transportation links to the rest of the North West of England. Multipart and Wolseley UK have already relocated to Revolution Park taking advantage of its excellent infrastructure and the surrounding residential and recreational areas.
It is anticipated that Buckshaw Village will bring more than 6,000 jobs to this part of the UK in all sectors of the community with two industrial parks, Revolution Park and Matrix Business Park, as well as a retail centre, a retirement home, a community centre and several educational centres. Strategically located around 1 mile from Chorley town centre and within minutes drive of of the M6, M61 and M65, the village will draw new business and therefore new job opportunities in the years to come.
