Homes for a Pound Plus

Up to 150 empty properties are set to be brought back into use in a major expansion of Liverpool’s Homes for a Pound scheme.

It follows the success of the pilot initiative involving properties around Granby Four Streets and Arnside Road. They are being brought back into use by people who live or work in Liverpool that have bought them for £1 on condition that they bring them up to decent homes standard and do not sell them for five years.

A report to the council’s Cabinet on Thursday 2nd April 2015 recommended the introduction of Homes For a Pound Plus which will focus on empty terraced homes off Smithdown Road.

The properties, which are two and three bedroom houses are located in Garrick Street, Bird Street, Richardson Street and Webster Road.
