More council homes are set to be built in Liverpool as senior councillors are expected to approve the scheme this week subject to funding.
The council's cabinet will meet on Friday to approve building 74 homes in Yew Tree ward subject to the local authority receiving a grant from Homes England and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
The project, part of a wider council plan to build thousands of new homes, will see 20 council homes built and a further 54 homes constructed for "affordable rent".
They are set to be built on land bordered by Denford Road, Ackers Hall Avenue, Dunchurch Road and Murcote Road.
A report submitted to cabinet outlines a plan to start construction on the scheme, which already has planning permission, in October, with the four sections of the scheme due to finish between the January 2022 and January 2023.
The report says: "The Denford Road scheme will provide housing choice in an area where new build housing has not been delivered for many years. In February 2020, Cabinet approved the various housing management policies associated with the Council building homes again, and these principles will be applied to this scheme.
"There are a number of socially rented homes, which will be available to the most vulnerable, and whilst property pool will be utilised to identify customers, a local lettings policy will be drafted pre-handover to ensure that properties in low supply (such as the 1 bed bungalows), are prioritised for customers with the greatest needs."
The exact costs of the project have not yet been released as the council is still in the process of applying for grants to secure financing for the project.

However, the report says one of the potential funders, Homes England, is supportive of the scheme in principle.
The 54 homes for affordable rent would be built in conjunction with housing provider Torus with the support of Homes England, while the new council homes would be delivered with a grant from the combined authority.
The council's cabinet will meet on Friday to approve the project subject to funding being secured.
