Sefton Council: Further reading

Sefton Cabinet members have given the go ahead for the Council's re-entry into the social housing market for the first time in nearly 15 years.

The Council's first new rented housing since its stock transfer in 2006 will begin with nine apartments on the Sefton Grange development at Buckley Hill Lane.

These homes will be acquired from Sandway Homes, the housing development company launched by the Council in January 2019.

Sandway Homes is also building 30 new homes in Crossens and 47 more in Ainsdale - due to be completed in 2021.

Next steps are for the Council to register with the Regulator of Social Housing as a social housing provider and as an 'Investment Partner' with Homes England.
