Regeneration Liverpool, the asset-backed vehicle between Liverpool City Council and Sigma Inpartnership, has submitted a planning application for the third phase of the £100m housing scheme in Norris Green.
The plans are for 63 homes to be built by off Heathwaite Crescent by Countryside, one of the preferred developers of Regeneration Liverpool, as a part of the ongoing redevelopment of the estate. So far 115 new homes have already been completed on site and construction of this latest phase should commence in the summer, subject to planning approval.
Of the 63 units, there will be 20 affordable homes and 43 sold to private occupiers. All of the properties will be built over two stories and a number of the three and four bedroom homes will have garages.
Graeme Hogg, director of Sigma Inpartnership, said: "This is another exciting step in the transformation of the estate, with the emphasis on quality homes and environment being maintained. We are delighted that despite the extremely difficult commercial environment, we are managing to push ahead with mixed tenure product, due to the strength of interest being shown in the scheme."
Ian Simpson, land director at Countryside, said: ""Countryside Properties is excited to be involved with the future phases of Norris Green Village on what is proving to be a popular development and one that gives the local home buyers a great opportunity for affordable home ownership."
This news follows the recent announcement that Regeneration Liverpool will be regenerating five more sites across the city in Stonebridge Cross, the Gateacre former comprehensive school site, Lime Street/Renshaw Street/Knowledge Quarter, Edge Hill District Centre and Lodge Lane baths site.
