This development in the Dingle, Liverpool provides a gateway to the Include Regeneration Area and demonstrates how redundant local landmarks in Housing Market Renewal Areas can be brought back into use.

The Wellington Road School buildings have been converted to provide 26 flats which exploit the generous floor-to-ceiling heights and large windows of the original Edwardian building. A two-storey penthouse containing 12 maisonettes has been slotted behind the parapet of the original rooftop playground from where they have views over the Mersey and Liverpool. Ten new family townhouses with private back gardens have been built on the footprint of a former annexe.

With its mix of shared ownership and private homes under the Pathfinder programme the scheme helps to redress the local imbalance towards social rented housing.
