Our big development plans for the region

We are excited to reveal our extensive development plans to create over 900 affordable homes in the next five years.

We have already commissioned a number of building developments across the North West – including Sefton, Liverpool, Wirral, Cheshire and West Lancashire – which will provide quality homes for affordable rent, as well as opportunities to own a home through the OVH shared ownership scheme.

You can see details of all the planned developments here: http://ovh.org.uk/homes/new-developments/

Louise Davies, Development Director for One Vision Housing, said: “This is an extremely exciting time for One Vision Housing, as we’re busy creating much-needed quality homes for local people. We expect that these developments will have a significant impact on the local housing shortage, and the regeneration of the North West.”

Thanks to OVH’s sustainable growth and additional funding, we plan to build 927 new homes by 2021; with the first 488 of the homes from committed projects expected to be complete within the next two years (2018); these are part funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

When OVH was established the organisation’s priority was to improve the standard of the 11k+ homes acquired from Sefton Council, and so all development work concentrated on investment and refurbishment work. Having succeeded ‘Decent Homes Standard’ in 2012 for 100% of our homes, we are now progressing with an ambitious Development Strategy for building new properties, which will be reviewed annually in line with demand across the region.

You can find details of of all our new developments here and the shared ownership properties currently on sale here.

Anyone interested in letting a property on these developments should register with the local choice-base letting scheme.
