34-home Liverpool affordable rent development completes



Housing association Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) has started moving tenants into the newly completed Leighton Dene development in Liverpool.

The development – a new affordable rent scheme in Fazakerley – has been completed as part of the Liverpool Housing Partnership.

The partnership – which comprises Liverpool City Council, Redrow Homes, LMH and contractor Willmott Dixon – was originally established to build 1,500 new homes over a five-year period.

The site was previously neglected and had remained vacant for a number of years, but it now contains 34 contemporary family houses and apartments following the £4.6m investment delivered in partnership with main contractor Willmott Dixon.

All homes have off-road parking and a range of energy-efficient products, including new boilers, new central-heating systems and double-glazed windows and doors.

Chris Bowen, development director at LMH, said: “Leighton Dene is a great example of our joint commitment to create high-quality affordable homes for people in housing need.

“This striking scheme benefits from high-end finishes and a range of energy-efficient products designed to keep tenants’ fuel bills down.

“LMH is already developing another 225 units on live, or committed, Liverpool Housing Partnership sites, including 145 properties on Edge Lane, where works could start as early as January 2018.”

Councillor Frank Hont, cabinet member for housing, added: “The Liverpool Housing Partnership is helping deliver high-quality homes for sale and rent.

“It is great to see this previously developed site being used to provide fantastic accommodation for tenants.

“The partnership of LMH, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the city council is helping us to invest in affordable social housing and is a win-win for all concerned.”
