Lovell will build a pair of housing association developments in Garston, south Liverpool, with work starting next month. Completion is expected in March 2016. The contractor will build 11 two-bedroom houses at Window Lane and 12 two-bedroom houses at Island Road South, all for affordable rent. Both locations are brownfield sites.

The scheme is designed by John McCall Architects and supported by funding from the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA).

Lovell regional director Nigel Yates says: “We’re delighted to be continuing our strong working partnership with South Liverpool Homes and excited to be starting construction on this important scheme which will help answer the demand for high-quality new homes for rent locally, providing modern and attractive properties within easy reach of Liverpool South Parkway and only about five miles from Liverpool city centre.”

The contract award was negotiated following Lovell’s delivery of the Church Fields housing development at Garston under the Bridge which created homes for sale by Lovell and 91 houses and apartments for South Liverpool Homes.
