Redrow completes Knowsley land deals
The housebuilder is planning to start the construction of 730 homes this summer after finalising the acquisition of 90 acres in Halewood.
Redrow has exchanged contracts on a plot of land off Lower Road, where it has outline consent for 582 homes, while the firm also has planning consent for 148 homes on a second site it has bought off Greensbridge Lane.
At the Lower Road site there will be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, and three- and four-bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached properties.
The Greensbridge Lane site is to comprise three-, four- and five-bedroom detached houses.
A quarter of the homes are to be designated as affordable, and the development is expected to take between five and seven years to complete, according to Redrow.
The homes are to be delivered by Redrow’s Chorley-based Lancashire division, which covers areas formally within the boundaries of the historic county of Lancashire, including parts of Merseyside and Cheshire.
Claire Jarvis, managing director of Redrow Lancashire, said: “The sites form part of the East Halewood Sustainable Extension, a masterplan to provide high-quality new homes in the local area with a vision statement to ‘be the most sought after and significant scheme of its type in the south of the city region’.”
