An £8 million housing development is expected to “contribute significantly” to Everton’s regeneration when it takes shape at the former Notre Dame School.
Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) will build 76 new homes on the site by the end of 2017 including a range of apartments, houses and bungalows.
Properties available for affordable rent and shared ownership will be included within the scheme, which forms part of an ambitious programme to deliver 1,200 new homes by 2018.
Once completed, the homes are expected to be a success for the Liverpool Housing Partnership, in which LMH is working alongside Liverpool City Council and Redrow Homes to build 1,500 new homes over five years around the city and bring up to 1,000 back into use as part of a £205m investment.
Steve Coffey, chief executive at LMH, says: “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.”
The scheme is the first of a potential four phases which could be delivered on adjoining sites to provide a total of 230 units.
Councillor Frank Hont, Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for housing, says: “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.”
