The relationship management team are so lovely, even if you bump into them walking they always say hello and are just really easy to deal with! I think Get Living do a lot to create a sense of community, the events are great and bring people together.

Whilst most flats have the same layout, NMY did a great job of giving each flat a unique touch. The outside area is also absolutely stunning and looks amazing when the sun weather is nice. The convenience of having a Co-op, beer house and retail park is also very handy.
