Redrow plots 318 more homes at East Halewood

The housebuilder, one of several active in the area, is progressing plans to redevelop a 28-acre chunk of the Knowsley masterplan. 

Redrow has lodged plans to build an additional 318 homes at East Halewood, having already won consent for 344 last year. 

The housebuilder’s Lancashire division wants to deliver 57 one-bedroom apartments and 44 with two bedrooms. 

The scheme also proposes 44 three-bedroom houses and 173 with four bedrooms. 

There will be 131 homes designated as affordable, according to a planning statement by consultancy Lichfields. 

Knowsley Council approved the 1,500-home East Halewood masterplan, covering 200 acres between Halewood and Everton FC’s Finch Farm training ground, in 2020. 

Optimised Environments, with support from multidisciplinary firm WSP, drew up the masterplan, which also proposes to expand and upgrade Finch Woods as a public park.   

The former Green Belt site was one of ten reallocated for residential development under Knowsley’s local plan, adopted in 2016. 

So far, permission has been granted for more than 900 properties. 

Both Bellway and Miller Homes are bringing forward a combined 578 homes on neighbouring plots.

There is a train station near this site so hundreds of homes will be served by this great amenity, pity Merseyrail can`t get some other stations re-opened/opened at nearby Gateacre and Childwall for example , both densely populated areas with a disused rail line currently wasted as a cycle track.
