KHT completes award nominated Bluebell bungalows scheme

KHT completes award nominated Bluebell bungalows scheme


Knowsley Housing Trust (KHT), part of the First Ark Group, which is committed to creating a successful and sustainable community for people and businesses in Knowsley, has completed work on a new scheme that will complement extra care development, Bluebell Park.

Nine stylish new bungalows have been built on Alamein Road in Huyton, Knowsley, opposite the Bluebell development, which is due to be completed in autumn this year. Although independent from Bluebell Park, bungalow residents will be able to use the facilities in the extra care scheme if they wish to*, which include an on-site care team, restaurant, and hairdresser.

As part of the Home & Communities Agency’s pledge to increase the supply of new affordable homes in England, KHT was awarded a £835,000 grant to deliver 59 homes to Knowsley by March 2016. The Alamein bungalow scheme is the first to be completed from the funding pot and offers residents a high quality and sustainable living environment with the option to tailor a support package specifically for their individual requirements when Bluebell Park opens.

The development has already gained industry recognition from the Local Authority Building Control Awards 2014, receiving a nomination for ‘Small New Build Scheme of the Year’ following a submission by Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council (KMBC).

Ian Thomson, executive director at KHT, said: “Providing our residents with the opportunity to create a community and living environment that works for them has been an instrumental factor in this development process. Our primary aim with the Bluebell Alamein bungalows was to create a scheme that allowed residents complete independence from the supported living at Bluebell Park, but with the option to choose the fantastic extra care facilities on offer if they wish.

“We’re extremely proud to have already received award recognition for this development and feel KHT’s approach to building great homes, which are tailored to the needs of future residents, further demonstrates our commitment to investing in the local community.”
