Green light recommended for almost 150 Edge Lane homes

Plans to build almost 150 new homes on Edge Lane look set to be given the green light.

Proposals for the mix of houses and apartments have been recommended for approval at a meeting of Liverpool City Council’s planning committee next week.

The plans from Liverpool Mutual Homes include 38 houses, 50 one and two bed apartments and 57 two and four bedroom duplex apartments.

If given the go-ahead, the new development would be split across various blocks rising up to four-storeys on land bounded by Edge Lane and Royston Street.

A report to be discussed by the planning committee reads: ”The interim head of planning considers the development would enable the regeneration of a vacant and cleared site and would provide a mixed use development in a highly accessible location.

“He considers that the development represents an appropriate response to the site in terms of its height, scale and massing and would contribute positively to the character and appearance of the area without undue loss of amenity for neighbouring occupiers.”

Liverpool’s planning  committee will meet at the town hall to discuss the scheme next Tuesday (14 November).
