Halsnead is an exciting opportunity for new residential and employment development and is a key part of the council’s ambitious growth plans for Knowsley.
Halsnead will be a new, vibrant community with a range of high quality housing, new employment opportunities, a new Country Park, a new primary school and improvements to other community and outdoor leisure facilities.
Earlier this month, the development was named as one of only 14 Garden Villages in the country and the only one in the Liverpool City Region.
Cllr Graham Morgan, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development said:
“This is the biggest change that Knowsley will see in the next 15 years and is part of the council’s ambitious plans for growth across the borough.
Over the past few months, the council has been preparing the exciting new draft Masterplan based upon Garden Village principles, which will help to guide development in the area and will focus on the sites natural and historical assets.
Historically the site formed part of the Halsnead Park Estate and has been out of bounds to the local community. The Masterplan will change this by opening up the area and enhancing it for the benefit of local people and new residents.
We want people to get involved in the consultation on the draft Masterplan and have their say. This is their chance to guide the development of this exciting and unique opportunity.”

Once consultation has closed all consultation responses will be considered, reviewed and relevant changes made. A final version of the Masterplan will be presented to Knowsley Council’s Cabinet for adoption, in the spring.
Before any development takes place, Knowsley Council will need to consider individual planning applications. The Masterplan will ensure that any development will be a visible demonstration of Knowsley’s ambitions for high quality design, construction and environmental standards.
