Wirral Council planners have given the green light to Peel L&P and House by Urban Splash, to build the first 30 modular homes at Wirral Waters.
This is the first phase of a £55m deal to build 347 new homes under the Peel L&P and Urban Splash 50/50 joint venture. This is the first time Peel L&P and Urban Splash, two of the North West’s most innovative developers, have worked together in this way.
Planning consent includes the customisable Town House from House by Urban Splash, which will launch for sale next spring.
Planning has also been granted for the first Row House homes, the newest product in the House by Urban Splash modular portfolio. Row House has been designed by Liverpool-based architects Shedkm and will be unveiled to the market in 2020.
House by Urban Splash is a new company, which creates innovative, architect-designed homes using modern methods of construction. It is owned by award winning property developer Urban Splash, in partnership with Sekisui House, Japan’s largest housebuilder, and Homes England.
Town House and Row House are just two of the House by Urban Splash types which will be on offer as part of the planned 347 modular, factory-built homes for the East Float area of Wirral Waters – the residential area House by Urban Splash is creating with Peel L&P. All of the modular homes will be customisable by purchasers before being manufactured offsite in the House by Urban Splash modular factory and delivered to site.
Richard Mawdsley, director of development at Peel L&P, said: “East Float will be a huge draw for those wanting to take advantage of the very latest in modular housing design and I am delighted that the first wave of this development has now been approved by Wirral Council. It’s an exciting start for this area of the development, which will be delivered in phases.
“This project will not only provide much-needed housing for the area but it will transform the brownfield site into a highly contemporary, internationally recognised waterside residential quarter for families, individuals and couples alike.”
Jonathan Falkingham MBE, who co-founded Urban Splash in Liverpool in 1993, added: “This new residential quarter is an exciting transformation for Merseyside and we’re delighted to be contributing to this emerging neighbourhood, bringing a wide choice of modern, innovative new homes for people to live in.
“We look forward to launching Town House for sale and unveiling the new Row House product – a typology that’s being delivered in Merseyside before anywhere else. We’ll soon be commencing with the development of these unique modular homes which will appeal to and be attainable for a wide range of buyers across the region.”
