Affordable new homes for Liverpool following successful bid

Hundreds of new homes are set to build across the Liverpool City Region over the next four years following successful funding bid.

Four of the city’s Housing Associations have secured £14 million of Government cash from the Homes and Community Agency (HCA) 2015-18 Affordable Homes Programme.

The investment will be used to generate 566 properties and 80 shared properties, with some featuring energy saving technologies to give tenants cheaper fuel bills. The new homes will be a mixture of  two, three and four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments.

The four Housing Associations involved:

  • Riverside – 186 units
  • Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT) – 51 units
  • Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) – 313 units
  • Plus Dane – 96 units

Assistant Mayor and Cabinet member for housing, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, said:

“This is really great news for the city and is part of our commitment to improve the range and quality of properties on offer for residents.

“We are working closely with our housing associations to make sure the properties are built in the right places to meet the demand in the local area.

“It is another boost to the Mayor’s pledge to build 5,000 new homes and bring more than 1,000 back into use which we are already on track to exceed.

“We will also be making sure that as much of the construction work as possible benefits local firms and local people.”
