Latest Phase of Edge Hill
WORK has been completed on the latest
phase of new housing off Edge Lane in Liverpool. Bellway is constructing around
150 properties at Williamson Place, off Wavertree Road, in Edge Hill, in addition
to 200 homes already completed as part of the development.
The properties include innovative 'heat recovery' ventilation systems
which reduce energy use and are also built to 'lifetime home standards'
which means they are fully accessible for people who have a physical disability
or a wheelchair.
Councillor Frank Hont, Cabinet member for
housing, said:- "This part of Edge Hill is being transformed through the
delivery of a varied mix of good quality new housing.
We already know there is real demand for these homes as they are close to the
new Archbishop Blanch High School and areas of major employment such as the
Innovation Park, the new Royal Liverpool Hospital and the Knowledge Quarter.
The future for this area is looking really positive as we are also moving
forward the next phase of our Homes for a Pound scheme in nearby Picton and
looking to bring empty retail units back into use on Smithdown Road and Earle
Road through Shops for a Pound. This is part of our commitment to deliver much
needed, good quality homes for residents to increase the choice, range and
quality of properties that are available across the city, transforming our
neighbourhoods. Projects such as this also support and create jobs in the
construction and supply chain as well as supporting apprenticeships."
The latest phase of work also completes the Wavertree Road green boulevard; a
new avenue with landscaping and traffic calming.
Nicola Mountain, Sales Manager at Bellway Homes said:- "Demand for homes
in this location has always been high and there has been a lot of early interest
in this phase we are looking forward to going on sale in the autumn."
The next stage of development includes plans for new retail and commercial
units. So what are your views on this? Please email us to:-
