Affordable homes boost for Leasowe

Post by Wirral Council News » Thu May 31, 2018 4:44 pm

Developers have handed over the keys to 6 brand new, large, affordable family homes at Cameron Road, Leasowe. 

The 4 bedroom properties, built by local housing association, Prima Wirral in partnership with Wirral Council, Kinlan Construction and with funding from Homes England, are a much needed addition to the area and will help to meet local housing demand for larger family homes.     

On Tuesday 29th May 2018 Anita Leech, Chair of Prima Wirral, John Ghader, Chief Executive of Prima Group and Councillor George Davies, Deputy Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member Housing & Planning from Wirral Council, celebrated with the new tenants, the completion of the development, by officially handing over the keys.

Chair, Anita Leech said, 'We are delighted to be able to deliver these high quality homes, providing much needed affordable large family housing for the local community.  This exciting new development has involved great partnership working between Prima Group, Kinlan Construction and Wirral Council.  It’s lovely to be able to handover the keys and welcome families into their new homes and into the Leasowe community.'

Cllr George Davies, Wirral’s cabinet member for housing and planning said: ‘It’s great to see some much needed larger family homes being built for the residents of Wirral. Developments like these show we are making progress against the ambitious housing targets we set ourselves back in 2015.

'As a council, we are committed to ensuring we have the right housing and accommodation for people who live and work in Wirral now and in the future, and I don’t think there’s a bigger priority for us over the next few years.'

The Group’s Chief Executive John Ghader added, 'We are thrilled to be able to handover the development and be able to provide these larger high quality affordable homes in Leasowe.  As part of the Prima Group, Prima Wirral will manage these homes. Already based within neighbourhood they are an integral part of the area and demonstrate our commitment to the local community. 

'Developing new homes has been a long-term aim for Prima Wirral and we are looking forward to completing this project and hoping to identify other opportunities for development to provide further homes in the future.'
