CBRE’s Operational Real Estate team in Manchester has secured a new development opportunity for nursery group Kids Planet in the heart of Buckshaw Village

The 0.65 acre site is situated within the village centre by KFC and the War Horse Pub fronting Barn Wallis Way. The proposed 140-child place 6,150 sq ft purpose built children’s day nursery
will benefit from two external playgrounds, 25 car parking spaces, generous drop off / pick up points and landscaped areas. A planning application has been submitted and is awaiting determination by
Chorley Borough Council.

Buckshaw Village is conveniently located near to junction 8 of the M61 and is situated circa two miles to the north of Chorley and forms one of the largest new urban development areas within the UK. It comprises 3,000 homes, a vibrant commercial centre and a vast logistics hub.

Nick Huddleston, Associate Director at CBRE comments; ‘‘We are delighted to have brought Kids Planet on board. Not only is it a fantastic location, but the proposed scheme will offer exceptional
facilities in the heart of the village centre, close to Trinity Church Primary School. The current shortage of child nursery places in Buckshaw coupled with the highest quality accommodation on offer
should be extremely popular with parents and local families.’’

Kids Planet, which is head quartered in Lymm, Cheshire, forms the third largest nursery operator in the UK with a 52-strong portfolio, which includes facilities in the Midlands and provides care to nearly
7,500 children. Kids Planet was founded in 2008 by chief executive Clare Roberts and her father John, who is now chairman. It received a £10m investment from the BGF in 2016 and has since trebled
its footprint.

Clare Roberts of Kids Planet comments ‘’We are extremely excited about bringing Kids Planet to Buckshaw. The new development will offer state of the art facilities in a superb and prominent setting in
the village centre. We are dedicated in providing the best in children’s day care and enhancing the offering within the local area. Kids Planet continue to be acquisitive for more opportunities and are very much open for business’’.
