A new development of shared-ownership homes at Barrow was officially opened by Nigel Evans MP, and Bridget Hilton, Mayor of the Ribble Valley.

The Barleyfields scheme, developed by Plumlife, will create 14 new two-bedroom and three-bedroom houses for local people.

Shared ownership is designed to reduce the costs of home ownership for first-time buyers by reducing the deposit required by lenders and keeping monthly repayments down.
