Lime Grove, the first TAC development to complete, has been entered into an LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence Award. It’s been nominated in the Best Social or Affordable Housing category, and we will hear the outcome of the judge’s decision in May.
Hoole Lane, the 29-home site in Banks, Lancashire, that we’re developing with One Vision, is also in the process of being handed over. The development is now called Old School Close, and the showhouse is open now – you can have a look here and book a visit – with the remaining 28 of the houses due to be handed over before the end of the month.
Work is also ongoing at nearby Windsor Road, another One Vision site in Southport, and progressing ahead of plan; contractors are on site too at Cassino Road in Huyton, where the local school has been running a competition to design a poster, reminding young people of the dangers of playing on a building site.
After a significant amount of engineering work to level the steep site, work is progressing well at North Liverpool’s Notre Dame development, with the roads due to be tarmacked in coming weeks. More than 14,000 cubic metres of sandstone have been excavated, with the majority reused on site to level the area. We’re still on target for a handover in spring 2018 to Liverpool Mutual Homes, our housing partner for Notre Dame’s 76 new homes.
Our big February news is our own move into a new HQ in Woolton village. After eight months in temporary office accommodation we’re looking forward to a permanent home in south Liverpool, where we’ll be in the heart of the village on Woolton Street.
