As it continues its work creating more new homes the modern housebuilder House by Urban Splash, working in joint venture partnership with Peel L&P, has secured the support of Lloyds Bank on its newest neighbourhood at Wirral Waters.
Signalling its support for sustainable new projects, Lloyds has agreed to provide an initial £5million green development loan to support the delivery of 30 modular homes within the JV’s East Float quarter – part of the Northbank neighbourhood at Wirral Waters, between Birkenhead and Wallasey.
The bank intends to provide further funding to support the remaining homes being developed as part of Wirral Waters.
Lloyds has a longstanding relationship with the Urban Splash family of businesses, including its recent support at the company’s Park Hill in Sheffield. Ben Thatcher is head of finance at Urban Splash and said, “This funding represents yet another positive step forward for East Float, which will bring hundreds of new design-led homes to Birkenhead.
“Our distinctive homes are as ambitious in terms of sustainability as they are in design, with offsite modular construction ensuring we’re able to minimise their environmental impact and promote green, waterside living. We are delighted to secure the ongoing support of Lloyds Bank; the institution’s ability to incentivise sustainable development made it the ideal funding partner for East Float and we look forward to its support as we move to ensure the neighbourhood’s swift delivery.”
Richard Butterfield, relationship director at Lloyds Bank, said, “East Float and the wider Wirral Waters project represent strategic regeneration at its best and will no doubt set the standard for future residential and mixed-use redevelopment as the UK’s green recovery continues to materialise.
“Both Urban Splash and Peel L&P will be key drivers of the levelling up agenda in the years to come – stimulating sustainable economic and social change for local communities in the North West. Their commitment to the region aligns entirely with our own and will undoubtedly see us work closely together in the future as we increase our investment in green development and regeneration.”
Added Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters, “This is another important step forward for our joint venture with House by Urban Splash and the wider Northbank neighbourhood. These new innovative, design-led and sustainable homes are already proving very popular.
“And they are just the start. With other key developments over one thousand new homes will be built along Northbank in the next three to four years. With a range of housing types for different people, families, and budgets, we will create mixed, diverse new community here at Wirral Waters.”
The first homes at East Float are now on sale; they are being created in the House by Urban Splash factory, before being delivered to site to customer specifications. Further information can be found at
