Anfield bakery unveils plans for community housing in former council properties

Former council properties in Anfield could be refurbished into new homes and businesses under fresh proposals.

In April 2023, Liverpool Council disposed of nine properties on Oakfield Road in Anfield to Your Housing Group (YHG) to act as a development manager for Homebaked Community Land Trust (CLT) to deliver housing in the area. Plans were agreed back in July 2022 but were extended to secure necessary funding.

Now a full planning application has been lodged with the local authority’s planning department with documents outlining how the area could be transformed.

Almost two years ago, the council signed off on plans for a 150-year lease to be granted to YHG for the delivery of new homes for just £1 subject to social value and well-being terms. Among those involved were Homebaked CLT – a not-for-profit, community-based organisation delivering facilities and environmentally sustainable homes at affordable rental levels.

Over the last decade, Homebaked CLT has been at the forefront of community-led regeneration in Anfield and Everton, setting up a bakery at the end of Oakfield Road which has proved popular with Liverpool FC fans on match days. Original terms agreed two years ago required YHG to pay almost £250,000 to the council had it not disposed of the properties to Homebaked within three years of the lease being granted and refurbishment being completed in the same time frame.

That requirement of payment will no longer be required and five years was granted for the completion of necessary works.
