New Hope for Welsh Streets after Council U-Turn

Liverpool Council has announced it is looking for developers to refurbish Victorian terraced housing previously earmarked for demolition under a Pathfinder scheme. The works, estimated at £14m will see housing in Edge Hill, Granby and Picton (all areas close to the Welsh Streets) brought back into use after years of neglect. In a remarkable volte-face the council has admitted that it will be easier to find developers prepared to refurbish the properties than to redevelop new housing on the site.

The full story is reported in the Liverpool Echo.

Welsh Streets next? Watch this space.

Meanwhile, with emergency repair works at 21 Madryn Street almost complete, Camelot has been interviewing house guardians. The guardians will be in place by Monday at the latest.
