Hundreds of high quality new homes are set to be built across three different sites in Knowsley.

Members of the council’s Planning Committee granted planning permission (Thursday 9 November 2017) for the development of a total of 274 new homes.

The sites are:

  • A development by Bellway Homes for 87 detached properties on Rupert Road in Roby;
  • 68 new homes – a mix of detached and semi-detached properties – built by the Stewart Milne Group on Scotchbarn Lane in Prescot; and
  • A development of 119 new properties by Anwyl Homes on Hall Lane in Prescot. The development consists of 80 four bedroom detached homes, 15 three bedroom detached homes and 24 three bedroom semi-detached properties.

Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Lead Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Brian O’Hare, said:

“These new developments will help us to increase the choice and availability of high quality housing in Knowsley.


“Our vision is to have a housing offer in Knowsley which meets the needs of our current residents and also attracts new people who want to move to the borough from elsewhere.


“The developments will also support our growth plans for Knowsley, bringing new investment into the borough which can then be reinvested for the benefit of our communities.”
