A housing development in Merseyside costing £2.7m is to receive further work after it stalled following a collapse of the developer. This should lead to a generous amount of work for Merseyside builders, as well as those in North Cheshire, and other tradesman in the area.

Regenda, the North West based housing group, will be building 30 cost-effective houses at the St Helens site.

Mulbry homes, the specialist property development firm, managed to acquire the site initially from Chelford Homes administrators. However, it entered administration in the summer of last year.

The Beeches was then bought by Regenda, a specialist when it comes to offering affordable property for sale and rent in the city of Liverpool.

Regenda will collaborate with Mulbury in order to see that the scheme is complete. There are seven homes, all partly-built, as well as an additional 27 on Jubits Lane.

The Homes and Communities Agency provided funding for the scheme, which will comprise a combination of two-bedroom, three-bedroom and four-bedroom houses, each one offered for rent at an affordable rate.

Mulbury Homes director, Greg Mulligan, said:

“By creating a partnership with Regenda Group, we are able to deliver much needed affordable housing in this area of St Helens, rather than allowing it to lie dormant.”

Each of the 27 properties will comply with green regulations set by the Government, and Mulligan added that the plan is for the whole scheme to be completed within the next 12months.
