Work has begun on the latest of four schemes which will see the delivery of 65 quality, affordable homes across the North West worth a total of £6.2m.
Liverpool-based construction and development company, Crossfield Group, is working with housing provider Onward, to create the apartments for the affordable rental sector in Widnes, Liverpool, Cheshire and Wirral.
This week saw groundbreaking take place at the largest of the four schemes, at Prenton Dell, Wirral. Crossfield will deliver 28 quality two-bedroom apartments on this project, totalling £2.8m.
Also currently underway are projects to deliver 12 apartments in a £1.2m, three-storey development on Buckland Street, in Aigburth, Liverpool, whilst at Albert Road in Widnes a £1.2m project will see the demolition of a derelict former public house and the creation of 13 new apartments. Groundbreaking is imminent on a scheme to create 12 apartments in a £1m project at Old Liberal in Winsford, also in partnership with Onward.
Crossfield Group will work to ensure that each of the projects deliver additional benefits to their respective local communities. This includes employing local people on site including those who have previously been unemployed, delivering educational sessions for schools and improving local public spaces.
David Cain, Director at Crossfield Group, says: “It’s vitally important that there are high quality homes available in the affordable rental sector and we are proud to be able to partner with Onward to deliver these much-needed apartments.
“Onward Homes is delivering some of the most innovative housing projects in the North West and we are pleased to be working alongside them to deliver these four excellent schemes.”
Onward Homes is a leading provider of quality, affordable homes for rent and sale in the North West. Lin Powell, Head of Development at Onward, says of the Prenton Dell development: “The scheme for 28 two bedroom apartments is part of our ongoing commitment to developing affordable homes in Wirral and is an example of successful partnering between Onward, Crossfield, Homes England and Wirral Borough Council.”
