Warburton Hey, St Helens

This Warburton Hey scheme was for 147 new dwellings with a mix of tenure types completed over three phases of construction as part of a larger masterplan, with the aim of integrating a new, sustainable community into the historic fabric of Rainhill.

Informal streets with shared surfaces for pedestrians and slow-moving vehicles are connected by a series of green spaces.

The scheme is Lifetime Homes compliant and has achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, Secured by Design full certification and the Building for Life Gold award. It was a finalist in the 2013 Housing Innovation Awards and was shortlisted for Best Project in the 2013 Housing Design Awards.
