Work set to begin on next phase of Anfield housing project

Work on the next phase of a £12 million housing project in Anfield is set to get underway.

Housebuilder Keepmoat has confirmed the next stage of construction at ‘The Parks’, which will see 106 homes built by May 2019.

The scheme has already delivered 327 houses on earlier phases at the site which is bounded by St Domingo Vale, Oakfield Road, Glaisher Street and Hartnup Street.

Keepmoat has confirmed it will employ 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 (pictured), says: “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.”

The Parks is part of the £260m regeneration partnership between Liverpool City Council, Your Housing Group and Liverpool Football Club.
