Merseyside-based Carroll Build has successfully secured a contract with West Lancashire Borough Council for the construction of 36 new build homes in Skelmersdale.
Work started in April 2018, on the Beechtrees site formally home to 8 blocks of flats, which were demolished to make way for these new homes.
The development is part of the Council’s plan to meet demand for good quality affordable housing in the area.
The properties will consist of 36 semi-detached homes, and will be available to rent from April 2019.
Terry Carroll, MD of Carroll Group commented:
“We are very proud to be given the opportunity to work with West Lancashire Borough Council and their professional consultants, Arcus Consulting LLP on this prestigious project, which will greatly enhance the streetscape for the local community. Carroll Build has already completed a portfolio of works for rental properties for a number of leading housing providers in the North West – we are looking forward to utilising our expertise in this area to carry out the works on this fantastic development.”
Jacqui Sinnott-Lacey, Director of Housing and Inclusion at West Lancashire Borough Council said:
“We’re really pleased to see these much needed family homes being built here at Beechtrees. This project forms part of a much wider regeneration programme to benefit local communities across Skelmersdale.”
