Plans submitted for phase three of £100m Norris Green scheme

Regeneration Liverpool, a partnership between Liverpool City Council and regeneration specialist Sigma Inpartnership, has submitted a planning application for the third phase of development at its £100m scheme in Norris Green.

Phase three will see 63 new homes built by Countryside as a part of the on-going redevelopment of the estate. Some 115 new homes have already been completed on site and construction of this phase is set to start in the summer.

Subject to planning approval, the new phase situated off Heathwaite Crescent, will comprise a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses, 20 of which will be affordable homes and 43 will be 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 additional 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.

Councillor Joe Anderson, leader of Liverpool City Council, added: “The work of our groundbreaking Regeneration Liverpool continues to gain momentum, and this is the latest example of how it is enabling us to bring massive improvements to our housing stock.

“We’re determined to deliver high quality, affordable homes in every part of the city, and it’s vital we work effectively with partners to do this. It’s fantastic to see this housing scheme – an important piece in the jigsaw in the overall regeneration of Norris Green – making such good progress.”

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.
