Hazlehurst will be our third  independent living  scheme once complete  following the development of  our hugely successful Barkla Fields and Naughton Fields schemes in Widnes.

There will be four one-bedroom apartments, 52 two-bedroom apartments for Affordable Rent and 44 two-bedroom apartments for Shared Ownership.

The specialist apartments, located on Actons Wood Lane, will feature a range of contemporary facilities including a bistro and multi-function room, available to residents of Sandymoor and the wider community.

The scheme is to be named “Hazlehurst” after local businessman Thomas Hazlehurst who founded soap and alkali manufacturing company, Hazlehurst & Sons in 1816.

Hazlehurst will help address the future housing need for older people in Halton, which is expected to grow by 10,000 in the coming years.
