Gleeson Homes has been granted planning permission to build 178 homes off Hillside Avenue in Huyton, Knowsley.
The development, which will be known as Safari, will see the 14 acre plot be transformed into two, three and four bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.
Arron Passarelli, Divisional Managing Director at Gleeson said: “We are delighted to be delivering 178 fantastic new homes to Huyton, an area where we are seeing great success with our recent developments.
“We are pleased to be championing the area, supporting the community with our affordable homes, and employing a workforce on site that includes local labour and contractors. Our Section 106 donations will make a significant contribution in helping protect local wildlife and boost ecology with the replanting of 60 trees in the area. Crucially, we are determined to ensure that the housing market better serves young first time buyers and families on low to average incomes.”
Construction at Safari will begin in the new year and will span until November 2026. The development’s show homes will open in summer 2022 with the first new homes released for sale in spring 2022.
Gleeson will make several contributions to enrich the local community, including £357,000 towards biodiversity enhancement and infrastructure improvements
