The next phase of housing redevelopment in the Anfield area is set to start on site.
Phase four of The Parks, by housing and community regeneration specialist, Keepmoat, which has delivered 327 homes on earlier phases, will see a further 106 homes built by May 2019 in a project costing around £12m.
There will be 25 two bed houses, 66 three bed houses and 15 four bed houses all for private sale with prices starting at £92,000 rising to £170,000.
The site is bounded by St Domingo Vale, Oakfield Road, Glaisher Street and Hartnup Street in Everton ward.
And in a boost for local business and employment, Keepmoat is using four local subcontractors for bricklaying, joinery, tiling and landscaping. The firm is also set to appoint four apprentices from the North Liverpool area.
Gareth Roberts, regional managing director for Keepmoat in the North West, said: “There is an unrivalled commitment from all partners involved in this project and we’re proud to be a part of that vision to regenerate Anfield. The first three phases of build have justified the belief that more quality new homes are needed in the region; as demand hasn’t faltered.
“The availability of schemes like Help to Buy and our shared equity scheme has buoyed interest from first time buyers in particular and this next phase will offer more solutions to support local people get that first rung on the housing ladder.”
It includes the redevelopment of Liverpool FC’s main stand, which has just been officially opened, new and refurbished housing, improved shopping facilities and public spaces, office buildings, a hotel and the creation of a major new pedestrian-friendly avenue and public square.
