Cobalt Housing

Liverpool-based Cobalt Housing joined JV North in 2023, with plans to scale up its development programme across the Liverpool City Region.

Already owning and managing in the region of 6,000 homes in Fazakerley, Croxteth and Norris Green, it has announced a new development pipeline that will see 1,000 more homes built by the end of 2029.

A key element of the programme will see Cobalt Housing adapting its homebuilding to meet Future Homes Standard criteria that includes new homes producing 75 – 80 per cent less carbon emissions from 2025 by using technologies such as solar voltaic panels and air and ground source heat pumps.

As well as investing £175m, Cobalt Housing will apply for Homes England grant funding via JV North and use the consortium’s framework to appoint local contractors and consultants wherever possible to deliver much-needed properties to help address the housing shortage.

A key element of this investment will improve homes and the wider community alongside Liverpool City Council, Liverpool City Region and other key stakeholders such as partners in education, health, the voluntary sector and its supply chain.
