Liverpool Mutual Homes are going to be providing 76 new homes on the former site of Notre Dame School in Everton.
The £8 million project will complete by the end of 2017 and forms part of their ambitious development programme that will see them provide 1,200 new homes by 2018.
The development will consist of a range of apartments, houses and bungalows with secure parking; providing a high quality design with three storey town houses fronting onto Everton Valley. Properties for affordable rent and shared ownership will be included.
Steve Coffey, Chief Executive at LMH said, “The site is well placed strategically on a main thoroughfare to and from the City Centre, on the edge of major regeneration projects at Anfield and Great Homer Street. It will contribute significantly to the continuing regeneration of this part of North Liverpool”.
“This regeneration is a major priority for LMH as a key stakeholder within the area and we are committed to working with the Mayor to make North Liverpool a great place to live and work”.
“LMH already has a significant number of homes located close by. This development will add a diverse and quality product to LMHs portfolio and is well placed for local amenities and transport links”.
The scheme is the first of a potential four phases that can be delivered on adjoining sites to provide a total of 230 units.
Councillor Frank Hont, Cabinet member for housing, said: “This is another example of Liverpool City Council working closely with LMH to deliver quality homes to meet the needs of our residents.
“Together with the nearby development at Marwood Tower, we are delivering a wide range of properties for sale, shared ownership and affordable rent.”
The development will be another success for the Liverpool Housing Partnership formed in February 2015 which brought together Liverpool City Council, Redrow Homes and Liverpool Mutual Homes. The partnership aims to deliver 1,500 new homes over 5 years around the city and for LMH to bring up to 1,000 back into use as part of a £205 million investment.
