Liverpool City Council is to sell a former school site in Toxteth to housing association Plus Dane Group.
On Friday 21 March the city's Cabinet will be asked to approve plans for the sale of land on North Hill Street, which previously housed Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, in order to build 38 affordable homes.
The transfer of the land includes an adjacent site bounded by Amity Street, North Hill Street and Letitia Street.
Plus Dane has planning permission to deliver a mix of affordable two, three and four bedroom houses on the site. There will be 22 for rent, with the remaining 16 for sale.
If the land transfer is approved by the Cabinet, Plus Dane is due to start on site in April, with the scheme to be completed in March 2015.
The previous school building on the site suffered serious fire damage in July 2011, which led to its demolition and clearance of the area in February 2013.
Cllr Ann O'Byrne, Liverpool City Council's cabinet member for housing, said: "We continue to work hard to improve housing across the city, and this scheme would make an important contribution to delivering the affordable housing that local people so badly need.
"It's yet another example of how we are working with our partners, and making best use of our assets. It's helping bring in new investment and deliver housing that meets the needs of residents and breathes new life into our neighbourhoods."
