We really enjoy living on this development and hope to still love it just as much years down the line

Development quality was good however they lacked attention to detail with quite a few snags found. They were good at coming back to fix things but sometimes it was just easier to sort them out yourself rather than message them about another snag and then arrange a time to get it fixed.

Communication was good at the beginning of house purchase but then got a lot less frequent and we had to chase for updates.

Overall the delevepment is well designed and looks great. There is a walk path with exercise machines but no park as of yet.

The development is still being built on but the areas are kept as clean as they could be.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Clean estate with easy access to local shops that are 5-10 minutes away by car. 2 local pubs in walking distance with a sainsburys local and fuel station available at a 5 minute walk too.

Quite and lovely estate.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We hadn’t been told and weren’t aware that our house didnt come with a satellite. This would have been a nice thing to know before move in day.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

When we reached out about issues we have found, they were corrected quite quickly

Good design of houses, nice kitchen, good amount of space including garden and spaces between houses. Need more storage within the home. For example more cupboard space. Nice bathroom designs. Could do with more parking spaces for guests or visitors.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great local area, quiet and nice greens spaces as well as local shops

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Research the area you live in, be prepared for the noise of building houses.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, we had an issue with the fridge door fitting, this was sorted quickly

The development is great.

Review Date Sep 2021

The development is great. Has a wonderful little woodland walk, which also has exercise equipment a long it that will keep you fit or the kids entertained. Hopefully the sports/play area will be built in the coming months to make it even better. Wahoo

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great community with very friendly people. Good location for restaurants/pubs and especially if you’re a Crewe Alex fan

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That the sports/play area wasn’t being built until the whole development was complete

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Management have responded to some of the issues but not all

Enjoyable place to live

Estate design is aesthetically pleasing. Some gardens are quite small. More effort needs to go into communal landscaping, however, building work is still in progress. Good links to local children’s park and enjoyable pathways around the estate. Good parking to most of the estate.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Access to local shops, bars and restaurants is good. Petrol station nearby. Travel/commuting links are excellent.
Bin collections routine 2 weekly.
Minimal traffic through estate. PCSO presence in the area.
Overall, good place to live. Local commuity have an active social calender and inform residents of upcoming activities.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There seem to be a lot of Spiders around this area. Maybe due to rural location.

A lovely place to live

Review Date Dec 2022

The design of the development is lovely and all the houses have nice designs. Playground is now open but is often left in a mess as there isn’t enough bins around. That area also lacks lighting during darker nights. However the football/basketball court is yet to be opened even though it looks complete.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The streets are clean and for the most part kept tidy. There is a local pub, a nice restaurant, coffee shop and petrol station all within walking distance. I feel very safe and happy living in this area.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We had no idea that the ariel wouldn’t be included so were scrambling to find someone to fit an ariel for us.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

When we first moved in and issues were raised, someone came to fix them in the first 2 weeks.
