Bluebell Park opens its doors to residents

Knowsley Housing Trust (KHT), part of the First Ark Group, which is committed to creating a successful and sustainable community for people and businesses in Knowsley, is celebrating another milestone by opening its first show apartment on the new Bluebell Park Extra Care development in Huyton.
The development, which is due for completion in autumn of 2014, will provide 122 new one and two bedroom apartments for the over 55s. Approximately 101 of the apartments will be available through Extra Care Facilities, which will cater for the needs of older people by offering varying levels of care and support tailored to individual requirements.
The show flat, which is open to everyone who is interested in part-owning one of Bluebell Park’s apartments through Older Person’s Shared Ownership, boasts a fitted kitchen with an integrated oven, hob and extractor and a shower room with walk in shower. All apartments are also prewired for assistive technology, allowing residents easy access to communicate with the scheme’s warden.
Communal facilities will also be available to residents, which include a restaurant, lounge areas, a hairdresser, activity rooms and a guest bedroom. Care and support facilities will include assisted bathrooms as well as outdoor spaces.
The site also includes a lift, secure entry system and allocated car parking accessed through secure electric gates.
Over 60 people attended the official show flat opening event in May, with 20 registering their interest in reserving a property and four confirmed reservations.
Ian Thomson, executive director at KHT, said: “Putting the residents of Knowsley at the heart of our developments is paramount for KHT. Bluebell Park will allow older people with a care need to live independently in a relaxed, comfortable environment that has been tailor-made to suit their needs.
“We’re proud to be investing in the borough and look forward to showcasing the fantastic new apartments and facilities at Bluebell Park to the community over the coming months.”
Liverpool and England captain and Huyton ambassador, Steven Gerrard, marked the official development launch of Bluebell Park in April 2013.
