Bold Council project brings new homes for sale in the heart of Ormskirk

New homes being built by Cruden Construction in an exciting project by West Lancashire Borough Council are now up for sale.

Building works are progressing well on the Walmsley Drive development, on the former Westec House site close in Derby Street near the centre of Ormskirk.

Reservations of 19 new homes which will be up for sale have opened with leading property firm Bradley Hall appointed as the marketing agent. Four homes have already been reserved, further details are available at Walmsley Drive (external link).

People interested in buying a property can come and take a look around the show home, which will be launched at an open weekend on Saturday 10 November and Sunday 11 November between 9am and 1pm. People can drop in at any time on either day.

The new homes that are available for sale comprise of:

  • Three two-bedroom terraced houses
  • Eight two-bedroom semi-detached houses
  • Six three bedroom semi-detached houses
  • One three-bedroom detached house
  • One two-bedroom terraced house available for shared ownership

Councillor Jenny Forshaw, West Lancashire Borough Council portfolio holder for Housing and Landlord Services, said: “The area is going through an impressive transformation and will become an attractive residential area which will provide quality homes for local people".

As well as providing these new homes, the scheme will have an extra benefit of bringing in much needed funds for the Council. Like many other authorities across the country, the Council is facing financial challenges, and needs to become self-financing by 2020. The funds raised from the sale of homes will go towards supporting the Council's capital programme and helping to meet its priorities.

Bradley Hall’s director of estate agency Matt Hoy said: “We are delighted to be working with West Lancashire Borough Council in bringing these fantastic new homes to market."
