The housebuilder will begin work on its 178-home Huyton scheme in the New Year after securing consent this month.

The Hillside Avenue development, which will be known as Safari, will see the 14-acre plot be transformed into two-, three- and four-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.

The Government’s Help to Buy equity loan scheme will be available at the development.

Gleeson Homes said that construction will begin in the New Year and run until November 2026, with those buying in phasase one expected to be able to move in from summer 2022.

Gleeson’s contributions to Knowsley will include £357,000 towards biodiversity enhancement and infrastructure improvements. The company will plant 60 trees in the North Huyton area and construct a play area.

The Meadows at Rosebank, a 179-home Gleeson development in the area, has recently sold out.

Arron Passarelli, divisional managing director at Gleeson, said: “We are pleased to be championing the area, supporting the community with our affordable homes, and employing a workforce on site that includes local labour and contractors.

“Our Section 106 donations will make a significant contribution in helping protect local wildlife and boost ecology. Crucially, we are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first-time buyers and families on low to average incomes.”
