Still construction training opportunities for young people available. See below for details, together with this supportive article from the Liverpool Echo.
A perfect sunny afternoon for having a look at how things are going in Granby, Liverpool 8.
This end all done. Plus Dane at work on the far end.
But I’m principally here today to see how things are going on the Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust’s ’10 House Project’.
A warm drink later it’s time to go over to number 49. Last visited a couple of weeks ago when the contractors were just starting on site.
Liverpool Mutual Homes at work on the other side of the road.
I’ve always loved seeing houses stripped back like this to where you can see the structure so clearly. Always feels like anything is now possible.
Once any structural needs are clear, number 49 should start to be turned back into someone’s home any day now.
All two bedroom. Five for rent, five for shared ownership. And I’ll be back regularly to see how it’s all going.
Meanwhile, across the road?
As the first five LMH houses in Cairns Street are almost done now.
Taken from the angle where I’ve taken so many photographs of not much happening over the years.
Reminding me to remind you again that there is a training opportunity right now for 50 young people to get involved here.
Seventeen young people signed up at this event, so there are still plenty more places available. Get in touch with Merseyside Youth Association at the email and phone number above if you’re interested.
Decent homes and a new life for hundreds of people. And for the place itself. Granby 4 Streets, coming back to life on a sunny afternoon.
Don’t forget, the new Granby 4 Streets CLT website for detailed information about what’s being done by whom, how to get involved and applying for a home. And do pass the word around about the training opportunity for 50 young people.
