Knowsley Housing Trust (KHT), part of the First Ark Group, has started work on its first scheme in the Homes and Communities Agency’s 2011/15 National Affordable Housing Programme.
KHT was awarded £5m from the HCA in the NAHP bidding programme last year. The funds will build 229 homes across Knowsley from now until 2015.
Stephen Heverin, KHT Operational Director of Investment said: “We are very pleased to get the first homes in this programme underway.”
“The investment will provide a huge boost to the supply of housing in Knowsley and will offer hundreds of families a chance of a home.”
