Seddon has delivered a £3.6m project in Moreton for Magenta Living, Wirral’s largest registered housing provider.
The new estate comprises 34 two, three and four-bedroom houses, and four two-bedroom apartments, all designed by Ainsley Gommon Architects.
Paul Anson, executive director of business growth and resilience at Magenta Living, which owns and manages 13,000 properties, said: “We are delighted to be delivering much needed affordable housing to Wirral.
“We were keen to increase the provision of homes in the borough and we are thrilled with the final result. We are confident the new tenants will enjoy living in them.”
Wirral has identified an issue with affordability. A study by the National Housing Federation found the average home costs eight times the average income in Wirral, while private rental costs across Merseyside are predicted to rise by 22% by 2021.
Duncan Williams, housing director at Seddon, said: “It’s always our aim to deliver quality housing developments that will help to build strong communities. That is exactly what we’ve achieved here in Moreton.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Magenta Living on this project and we hope to work with them again soon.”
