A £5.5m development to provide affordable homes for locals

One Vision Housing’s latest residential development, The Brook at Scarisbrick, West Lancashire is set to provide 40 affordable homes for Rent to Buy and Affordable Rent.

 

The £5.5m development forms part of One Vision Housing’s current £110m Development Programme, which will deliver 1,100 new homes between 2018-21. The scheme provides properties for both Affordable Rent and Rent to Buy which provides a pathway to future homeownership.

The scheme which is due to complete in early 2019, is currently being constructed by Wirral based Developer MBE Construction and has been designed by BTP Architects. The development comprises of 12 cottage style apartments for Affordable Rent and 28 houses for Rent to Buy. The scheme has been allocated £1.5m grant funding from Homes England via their current 2018-21 Shared Ownership and Affordable Housing Programme.

Group Development Director, Louise Davies, said: “One Vision Housing are delighted to be working in collaboration with MBE Construction and BTP Architects to deliver 40 affordable homes in West Lancashire. The Brook at Scarisbrick is part of our strategic Development Programme to support local housing need.”

 

“As well as Affordable Rent properties, the development provides an affordable pathway into homeownership, with homes available for Rent to Buy. The Government-backed Rent to Buy product has been launched on One Vision developments elsewhere in Liverpool and Sefton, and has received an unprecedented amount of interest, so we anticipate that the scheme will be popular with those looking to move into homeownership at some point in the future.”

 

Vicky Saunders, Managing Director of BTP Architects said: “We worked really closely with West Lancashire Planners to meet their requirements given the adjacency of the site to the green belt. The result has been a high quality design, which ensures provision of plenty of green space, including a planted courtyard area, and is in keeping with the rural surroundings.

 

“We took a thoughtful approach to the design of each individual home to ensure these will be a joy for residents to move into. It’s great to see work well underway on the site and we are really looking forward to seeing the finished development early next year.”
