Stanley Investments has secured planning consent for 24 new homes off Brookside Road in Whiston. The scheme is being delivered for its Registered Provider partner Torus and will comprise of one and two bed cottage flats for Affordable Rent with funding from Homes England.
The application site, is currently surplus open land of poor amenity value. It is located immediately adjacent to residential properties and suffers from a history of antisocial behaviour, bonfires and abuse. The new scheme will deliver a significant improvement to local housing offer, built environment, and sustainability of the local community.
Neil Hughes at Stanley Investments said ‘This planning approval is the product of some very detailed design input from the Planning Authority at Knowsley MBC, and we have welcomed the Council’s engagement at this slightly more challenging time operationally’.
The development is due to start in the summer, subject to ongoing government advice in respect of the global pandemic.
