HELENA HOUSING GIVING LOCAL RESIDENTS A SAYThe consultation process has begun with interested parties, especially local residents, on the first proposals for the new Warburton Hey development. Two sessions were arranged in Rainhill Labour Club where Helena and the architects gave out information and answered many questions. The design above is a "first impression" consisting of houses and apartments. There is no plan at present to include any bungalows or detached houses.
To be constructed in three phases, approximately 135 properties are envisiged. Many local residents who lived in the old flats are keen to return to the site, and based on what I have seen, I don't blame them...!!!
A second consultation will happen a little later but with funding in place, Helena are keen to start the build and are hoping to start the development in late summer / early autumn 2009.
Before that a full application will have to be submitted to St Helens Planning Dept and agreed to enable it to go ahead.
