Timeline

• Work started in May 2021
• Building work due to be completed July 2022

The houses and apartments have been designed with large windows to maximise daylight with all properties benefiting from recessed front entrances to provide shelter and a sense of arrival for the occupant/visitor. 

The design has drawn inspiration from local examples of older housing and their typologies, as well as surrounding building components, landscaping and materials.

The completed Affordable Rent properties will be owned and managed by West Lancashire Borough Council.
