Groundworks have commenced on a new residential development of 154 homes on Knowsley Lane in Huyton.
The homes are part of a wider scheme that will eventually include business units; a convenience store; a Marston’s Inn; a Euro Garages fuel station complete with Greggs, Subway and Starbucks; public open space and playing pitches.
Residential developer Bellway is building the homes.
The residential section of the development covers just over 13 acres. Known as Earlsfield Park, it will comprise a mix of three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, all with private gardens and two allocated car parking spaces.
Bellway is already onsite in Huyton with developments on Whiston Lane and Rupert Road in Roby.
Managing director at Bellway North West, David Williams, commented: “We’re delighted to be developing further in Huyton and bringing more high-quality new homes to the borough of Knowsley. 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 set around easily accessible everyday amenities yet less than eight miles from Liverpool city centre and 30 miles from Manchester. We anticipate the development being highly desirable in the local area and are already noting interest from potential purchasers.”
Construction at Earlsfield Park is expected to take around three years.
