DETAILS EMERGE ON £100M LIVERPOOL PLANS
New details on plans to transform a disused Liverpool site into a £100m waterfront neighbourhood have been released today.
The proposals were first revealed earlier this month and concern a plot within Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters. Romal Capital is behind the application.
Proposed are 330 smart homes, retail space and amenities, as well as significant investment in the surrounding infrastructure.
The project would also provide a link in the development of the riverside from the Three Graces and Princes Dock.
The documents submitted alongside the application have now shed further light on the plans.
Lined up are a trio of three blocks ranging from four to nine storeys, as well as a partial dock infill of West Waterloo Dock to create new land on which to construct the development.
The buildings would comprise 194 one-bedrooms, 124 two-bedrooms and 12 three-bedrooms, alongside 140 car parking spaces, on what has been dubbed an “underused site” along the waterfront.
The planning statement drawn up by Arup noted that if approved, the scheme would help create “many hundreds” of full-time equivalent jobs during the two-year construction period.
“The development will help further support development within this area of underused and inaccessible dockland, and act as a catalyst for future development, which has already been agreed in principle through the Liverpool Waters outline consent”.
“The proposed scheme helps achieve the social objective as set out within the
NPPF through creating new communities and reopening areas of land that have not been accessible to the public for many years.
“In addition to this, new public open space and connectivity is proposed as part of the development.”
A decision is expected on the application later this year.
