Merseyside-based Carroll Build have announced the completion of 23 new affordable homes, consisting of 15 one-bedroom apartments and 8 two-bedroom homes. In December, Carroll Build handed over the block of apartments to developers One Vision Housing, completing the project and providing another example of One Vision Housing’s commitment to delivering 1100 new homes across Sefton and surrounding areas by 2021.
Located on the corner of Virginia Street and Scarisbrick New Road in Southport, the properties have been designed to have a comparable Victorian-style shapes, in order to respect local character and continue to enhance the street scene setting. The development, designed by Calderpeel Architects, includes 15 parking bays for the mews houses together with bike storage, and 10 parking bays servicing the apartment block. The scheme aims to provide a range of high-quality affordable homes to meet local needs and contribute towards the supply of housing land in Sefton.
One Vision Housing’s approach to the development was designed to generate local employment opportunities, regenerate a derelict previously developed pub, and attract new residents to the locality which will support local shops and businesses. The 23 unit strong development has significantly improved and enhanced the appearance and environment of the wider area, whilst widening opportunities and choice for home ownership in Southport.
Carroll Build completed these works to the highest standards with quality workmanship, products and technology within safe working environments, remaining mindful throughout the project.
Terry Carroll, Managing Director of the Carroll Group said:
“We are very proud of providing a range of high-quality affordable homes in Southport. We know that our development, in conjunction with One Vision Housing, will help widen opportunities for new homeowners in the locality, whilst enhancing the aesthetics of the area through our top-quality build. We ensure that community focus is at the forefront of every bit of work we complete, from reflecting the identity, character and history of the local surroundings in our build to generating employment opportunity throughout the construction phase.
