£60k start


Barratt has started work on the first batch of £60,000 homes after getting over the hurdles of planning and red tape. The firm was the first to start work after bagging two sites in John Prescott's Design for Manufacture competition.

Barratt has started work at the Upton site in Northampton and will start shortly on the Allerton Bywater site, near Leeds.
