Contracts signed for new independent living scheme in Sandymoor

8th September 2020
READING TIME:

2 minutes

Work will soon commence on Halton Housing’s new 100-apartment independent living scheme in Sandymoor, Runcorn after contracts were signed with Vistry Partnerships to build and deliver the scheme.

There will be  four one-bedroom apartments, 52 two-bedroom apartments for Affordable Rent and 44 two-bedroom apartments for Shared Ownership.

The specialist apartments, located east of Village Street, will feature a range of contemporary facilities including a bistro and multi-function room, available to residents and the wider community.

The scheme was approved in December last year and will be Halton Housing’s third  scheme of this nature following the development of its hugely successful Barkla Fields and Naughton Fields schemes in Widnes.

Earlier in the year, a company-wide naming competition for the scheme took place. A variety of names were suggested, and the scheme is to be named “Hazlehurst” after local businessman Thomas Hazlehurst who founded soap and alkali manufacturing company, Hazlehurst & Sons in 1816.

Paul Mullane, Director of Development and Growth from Halton Housing commented: “We’re delighted to see the building work begin on our long-awaited scheme at Sandymoor in Runcorn. Providing a good number of quality homes for those in later life; whilst also contributing to the wider community is what attracted us to the development, as part of our mission to improving people’s lives”.

Following their appointment, Vistry Partnerships’ Managing Director for the North West, Ian Hilliker, said: “We are delighted to be working with Halton Housing on their Sandymoor scheme. The 100 specialist apartments will transform the supply of housing for older residents living in Runcorn, and it will be a huge boost for the area.”

Hazlehurst is due for completion in Summer 2022.
