Autumn start for 291 homes in Sefton
After acquiring more than 24 acres of farmland in Lydiate, Bellway is now aiming to be able to market the neighbourhood’s first homes this winter.
Remediation work on the site is set to begin this autumn, with construction following soon after. The housebuilder hopes to open show homes on the site in 2023.
Jenny Bell, sales director at Bellway, praised the Lydiate site.
“It is a superb location and we will be building a good selection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes, catering for all budgets,” she said.
The site sits off Kenyons Lane and includes Morton’s Dairies. Bellway secured planning permission from Sefton Council to construct 291 homes in March. Of those homes, 88 would be designated affordable.
The houses will have between three and five bedrooms. There will be both semi-detached and detached homes.
As part of its Section 106 agreement with the council, Bellway has contributed more than £470,000 towards improving Kenyons Lane and the A59 junction. The housebuilder is also giving more than £166,000 towards healthcare in the community and another £18,300 towards helping with recreation.
APD designed the development for Bellway. Peacock + Smith was the planning consultant. The project team also included Lanpro, Waterco and Enzygo.
