    Default Dingle Regeneration

    FANCY a new designer des res with a rooftop garden and spectacular views of the River Mersey? Then move to Dingle.

    More than 300 swish environmentally-friendly homes are to be built on derelict land around the Park Street and Grafton Street area.

    Liverpool firm Union North beat off competition from architects worldwide to design the affordable new homes.

    The public will now be asked what they think of the designs before the final blueprint is drawn up and building work starts next spring.

    New Heartlands managing director Pauline Davis said: "The standard of this high quality design is amazing and it will go a long way to help us and our partners create sustainable communities for the future, attracting new people to the area."

    The homes, which will be built using a timber frame and a brick "skin" using local stone, will be a mixture of owner occupied, shared ownership and rented.

    The new community will have cobbled tree-lined streets and give priority to pedestrians instead of cars. Children will have their own secure play area.

    The design includes measures to reduce environmental impact, cut energy consumption and minimise lifetime running costs.

    Energy efficient white goods, boil-ers and external lighting will be used alongside ozone-friendly insulation and water-saving sanitary fittings.
    There will be recycling facilities inside and outside.

    The asking price has yet to be fixed but the idea is to make the homes as affordable as possible for local people.

    Many homes will have rooftop gardens and mesh privacy screens.

    The design challenge was set by the Royal Institute of British Architects in partnership with Merseyside housing market renewal Pathfinder New Heartlands and local regeneration partners.

    WORK on a new 6.5m Georgian-style residential square in one of Liverpool's most deprived areas is about to begin.

    The Liverpool office of Pollard Thomas Edwards architects (PTE) recently secured planning permission to build 60 new homes in the Dingle as part of the Government's Housing Market Renewal Initiative.

    The mixed-tenure development, featuring private homes alongside shared-ownership and social housing, has been carefully designed so that all types of home will have the same high quality of finished detail - encouraging a shared pride of place for all residents.

    PTE's new square, at the junction of Park Road and Northumberland Street, will transform a brownfield site previously blighted by dilapidated and vandalised local authority maisonettes
