Our new housing development at Brierfield is located in the Moorside Ward of Skelmersdale, West Lancashire. This site is located to the south west of Hope High School and comprised an undeveloped open grassed area prior to the development.
The proposed scheme is made up of 17 affordable new homes for West Lancashire Borough Council, comprising 6 x 1-bed flats, 2 x 2-bed flats, 3 x 2-bed houses and 6 x 3-bed houses with associated private and communal parking for residents.
The site will benefit from a new mews-style street off the existing Brierfield estate. The mews street will provide pedestrian, cycle and vehicular access to the site along with the use of Brierfield.
• Work started in December 2020
• Building work due to be completed February 2022
The buildings within this scheme have been carefully designed to respond to their immediate context.
Apartment residents will also share an attractive private communal garden.
The new block of apartments has been kept to two storeys in order to reflect the surrounding levels of the existing terraced properties and to avoid an imposing nature given the elevated location of the block within the site.
The completed Affordable Rent properties will be owned and managed by West Lancashire Borough Council.
