Regional Managing Director, Stuart Belfield said, “We are delighted to have secured this project and look forward to further enhancing our long-standing relationship with Plus Dane Group, providing much needed affordable homes for local people in Liverpool.”
Hayley Hulme, Head of Director of New Business and Partnerships at Plus Dane Group, said: “Plus Dane has been investing in this neighbourhood for many years to improve the choice and quality of homes, so we’re delighted to be working with Mansell to lead these new developments with the support of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency.
