Work commences on affordable housing development at Halsnead Garden Village

Your Housing Group has appointed Countryside Partnerships as build partner for the first phase of its development at Halsnead Garden Village.

The initial phase of the development includes 158 affordable homes. The development will feature a mix of 1 bed apartments, 2, 3 and 4 bed houses, and be available in shared ownership, rent to buy, and affordable rent tenures.

The current phase of the development is expected to be completed by spring 2026.

Lorraine Donnelly, Development Director for Your Housing Group, said: We are delighted to be working with Countryside Partnerships to deliver these homes in Knowsley. The Garden Village principles with community facilities and green spaces are very much in line with our vision to not just deliver quality homes, but to unlock affordable living and build thriving communities. Thank you to Knowsley Council and Homes England for their support in this project and showing true partnership working.”

Gemma Hardy, Managing Director, Countryside Partnerships Merseyside and Cheshire West said: “Your Housing Group is a valued partner and we’re very pleased to be working with them at Halsnead Garden Village, bringing much needed affordable housing to the area. The new development will help to make a significant contribution to the area’s affordable housing supply, becoming an important part of the wider Garden Village.”

Once complete Halsnead Garden Village will be the largest combined housing and employment development in the Liverpool City Region, delivering approximately 1,600 new, quality homes and at least 22.5 hectares of employment land.

Halsnead Garden Village will also provide 33 hectares of new greenspaces and a new, 28 hectare Country Park.
