Historic Speke cottages get the go ahead for regeneration
Published: 27 January 2020
The regeneration and refurbishment of three 18th century Grade ll-listed cottages in Speke has been granted planning permission last week.
This approval will breathe new life into the historic cottages on Hale Road in Speke, which will be repaired to the highest standards to ensure they continue to have a prominent place in the local community.
The cottages, owned by South Liverpool Homes, will be extended to the rear to comply with national space standards; forming spacious homes that members of the community want to live in.
The development also includes 17 new build bungalows which will be built on the land surrounding the cottages. The bungalows will become home to residents aged over 55, creating an inward-facing housing scheme with communal gardens and a community hub to reduce feelings of isolation.
South Liverpool Homes’ Director of Assets and Assurance, Claire Ryan said: “We are delighted to be able to bring these beautiful, historic cottages back into use, something that the local community has desired for a while now. The renovation will respect the heritage of the original buildings whilst utilising the surrounding land to build much-needed affordable homes.”
“The new two-bedroom bungalows will help meet the demand for level-access homes and create a brand-new community for older people who wish to live independently. We hope the community hub and gardens will encourage social activities for those that live there, reducing feelings of isolation and helping to build a strong community spirit.”
