Prescot Park

The Simple Life development at Prescot Park will be built by Countryside Properties and will include a mix of high quality 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 3 and 4 bedroom houses.

John Flaherty, Executive Director (Place) at Knowsley Council said: “I’m delighted that Countryside have received planning permission for this exciting new development.

“This development supports the council’s plans and vision to increase the choice and availability of high quality housing in the area whilst strengthening the sustainability of the Town Centre.

“Countryside are already building in other areas of Knowsley with those developments proving to be very popular and I am confident this one will be too”.

Mark Hadfield, Regional Operations Director, Countryside commented: “We are looking forward to starting work on transforming this brownfield site into a thriving community, as we have done successfully with our other seven developments within the borough. This opportunity will see the further extension of our close working relationships with Knowsley Council and Simple Life to bring the community quality new homes that are accessible to all. The Countryside distinction is something that as a home builder we pride ourselves on; creating places people love, with unrivalled specification, attention to design detail and above all placing the customer at the heart of everything we do.”

Rachel Hoy, Development Manager, Simple Life adds: “We are very pleased to be working with Countryside and Knowsley Council on a further Simple Life site in Knowsley. Our sites within the Knowsley area have all been a great success so far demonstrating a high demand for high quality private rental family homes. The Simple Life brand aims to offer a private rental experience which exceeds general expectations within the PRS market, giving customers an affordable home, in a great location with all the little details taken care of.”

Construction of the new homes is expected to start imminently with the first homes being available to rent towards the end of the year.
