The future of Liverpool’s Edge Hill area is said to be “really positive” as the latest phase of new housing has been completed.
Bellway has been building 150 properties at Williamson Place in Edge Hill as part of a varied selection of new homes, in addition to 200 which have previously reached completion.
The properties off Wavertree Road, which include three and four-bedroom homes, two-bedroom houses and bungalows, will be followed by the development of new retail and commercial units as a regeneration of the area progresses.
Commenting on this latest milestone for the area off Edge Lane, Councillor Frank Hont (pictured), Liverpool’s cabinet member for housing, says: “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.
“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.
