Knowsley Housing Trust partner with local business to provide new homes

April 16, 2014

Knowsley Housing Trust (KHT) has partnered with local company to build 10 new homes in Hillingden Avenue Halewood.

The development has completed ahead of schedule thanks to the effective partnership.

The properties are six, three bedroomed houses available through a Rent to Buy scheme and four bungalows of two and three bedrooms, designed specifically for disabled needs. All have been built to Code for Sustainable Homes level 3.

The four bungalows were matched with families in need of adapted accommodation from the very beginning and they were involved throughout the design and build process.

We worked closely with the families to build the homes to their specific requirements, adding facilities such as shower wet rooms and hoists where needed.

Knowsley Councils Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Economy and Skills, Cllr Dave Lonergan said “This is a great example of how effective partnership working can bring real benefits to our community. This project supports the council’s vision of improving the housing choices available to local people and by using a Knowlsey business to carry out the work, it has been good news for the local economy and employment.”
