New homes on Walmsley Drive in Ormskirk

Good progress is being made on new homes being built by Cruden Construction in an exciting project by West Lancashire Borough Council.

The Walmsley Drive development, being built on the former Westec House site on Derby Street near the centre of Ormskirk, will include 19 new homes for sale.

Reservations are open with leading property firm Bradley Hall appointed as the marketing agent and seven homes have already been reserved, further details are available at Walmsley Drive (external link).

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: “I am very excited by the progress on this scheme which is transforming this site into 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.
