29m regeneration development for Sefton

It's the sound of builders at work rather than people dancing the night away coming from the site of the former 'Secrets' nightclub in Bootle which is getting a new lease of life after Sefton Council and lead developers Bellway Homes West Lancashire agreed terms to build 1400 quality homes.

Phase 1 of the 15 year programme will see 29 million pounds invested to create 324 new homes - 52 of them on the Secrets site and the rest in the area previously occupied by the Roberts Primary school. The houses - which are for rent and shared ownership - will be managed by housing partner Breathe+.

Preparation works are also underway on two large canalside sites (Toprain and 511 Hawthorne Rd) and building will start there later this year.

Bellway will be working on the Hawthorne Road/Klondyke corridor until 2021.

The regeneration of the area is happening as part of the NewHeartlands Housing Market Renewal Initiative (HMRI) on Merseyside.

Councillor Ian Maher, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and NewHeartlands Boardmember, said: "This is a vital agreement which will lead to millions of pounds worth of private sector investment in these neighbourhoods. It will help deliver the transformational change we are seeking for housing in the area, by creating an impressive range of modern houses and apartments providing quality and choice for local residents for generations to come."
