Liverpool Pays £750,000 for RefurbishmentFri 25 Jan 2019
Liverpool City Council’s grant will go to homeowners on four ‘Welsh Streets’ to bring their homes in line with housing association, Plus Dane’s, £17.4m social housing programme in Toxteth. The Welsh Streets, built in the 1870s to accommodate Welsh workers, had stood in varying states of decline for years. They had been condemned, then later reprieved as it became clear, especially after the success of nearby Granby area, that they could be popular again with residents.
Lynnie Hinnigan, deputy mayor of Liverpool and cabinet member for housing, said:
'The regeneration of the Welsh Streets community is one of the city’s great success stories of the past decade and required a huge amount of partnership working to transform a collapsed idea into an award-winning scheme.'
