Michael Hunt

A total of 14 stalled housing schemes in the North West have received funding from round two of the Homes & Communities Agency Kickstart programme.

Around £10.5m has been granted towards housing schemes in Greater Manchester, Liverpool, St Helens, Lancashire and Chester.

Redrow Homes's Cressington Heath scheme, off Garston Road, in Liverpool has received £672,904 worth of funding.

JS Bloor's Gorton scheme and Persimmon Homes' Olives Valley scheme in Bury have each received over £1m of funding.

The HCA Kickstart programme is allocating almost £83m to unlock 5,696 new homes in the UK. The grants are part of the HCA's £450m worth of funding for 153 stalled residential schemes across the country.

A further announcement later in spring will be made on the other successful bidders in round two.
