The village centre will be made up of a new primary school, shops, a health centre, pharmacy, dentist and offices.  The offices will include an Enterprise Centre offering office space to small and start-up businesses. Plans for the village centre also contain an open space area with outside seating to provide a high quality public space.  All these elements will be closely linked to the housing development already completed in the area.

The scheme has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
