Work has started on a new residential development of 154 homes in Knowsley Lane in Huyton.

Part of a wider scheme that will eventually include business units, a convenience store, a Marston’s Inn, Euro Garages fuel station complete with Greggs, Subway and Starbucks, public open space and playing pitches, the homes are being built by Bellway.

In collaboration with commercial property developer, Ion and the Knowsley estate, the residential part of the development extends to 13.07 acres. Known as Earlsfield Park, it will comprise an attractive mix of three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, all with private gardens and two allocated car parking spaces.

A number of different house types will be available with open-plan fitted kitchens, contemporary family bathrooms and en suite bathrooms to the master bedrooms.

The development builds on Bellway’s existing presence in Huyton where the housebuilder is already on site with another development of 62 homes called Willow Grange on Whiston Lane and a further development of 87 homes called Nutwood on Rupert Road in Roby.

Managing director at Bellway North West, David Williams, said: “The overall plans for the development are superb.  Once complete the new homes and the commercial aspects of the scheme will result in a vibrant new community setting. We anticipate the development being highly desirable in the local area and are already noting interest from potential purchasers.”

Development director at Ion Development, Rob Mason, added: “Earlsfield Park offers a brilliant location to live, with excellent accessibility to Liverpool and the M57 in a parkland setting.

“The residential element of the development will also benefit from on-site retail and leisure facilities such as a family-orientated pub and hotel, a modern service station facility with retail and food outlets and a repurposed recreation facility.”

As part of the planning application, Bellway is making a number of Section 106 contributions that include £1.6m towards the wider commercial infrastructure works and £750,000 towards the planned improvements to the scheme’s public open space and playing pitches. 

Construction at Earlsfield Park is expected to take around three years.  The first homes will be released for sale very soon, with show homes to follow later this year.
