This scheme marks our commitment to bolstering the affordable housing and job market in the area and we will actively be working with local partners to recruit local talent to build the type of houses needed in the area.
This is an exciting scheme and one which encapsulates our ongoing and sustainable approach to generating value for the people who live and work in Knowsley – specifically in the wake of COVID-19 – to create a thriving, supported and strong community.” Full story first released on BusinessLive.co.uk
