Huyton is a popular residential area boasting well established local amenities, a prime location on the M62 corridor and regular direct train services to Liverpool, Manchester, Wigan and Preston.
At its heart is Huyton Village, home to the council’s administrative headquarters and location for a mix of national and local retailers. Serving a local population of more than 55,000 people and with a daily influx of c.1,000 town centre employees, the town centre is a busy retail and leisure hub for the local area.
A large programme of house building in the immediate area is driving demand for additional retail and leisure provision in the town centre, alongside a requirement for more new homes close to local transport and retail facilities.
There’s an ambitious 10 year development plan for Huyton which includes the delivery of a new mixed-use commercial district including new leisure, residential and commercial office opportunities centred by an attractive Village Green connecting historic Derby Road. Genr8 Kajima Regeneration have been appointed as the Council’s Development Management Partner for the scheme which will deliver 1700 jobs for the local area and provide a £50m boost for the local economy.
Work is well underway to deliver our vision for Huyton. A shop fronts improvement programme has provided a contemporary makeover including new doors, windows, signage, and lighting to 14 shop fronts with a further two phases to be delivered by the end of 2023. Investment in a public arts strategy is reinvigorating the streetscape improving vibrancy and creating intrigue and interest in the town. A flourishing food and beverage sector is emerging, complementing our aim to diversify the high street offer providing a variety of uses led by a strong independent business sector.
A number of development sites, totalling approximately 7 acres, have now been identified within the mixed-use commercial district and a range of investment opportunities are currently available.
