• Arundel Avenue, Toxteth, apartments

New apartments planned for Toxteth conservation area

New apartments could be built on a plot of previously developed land in Toxteth under new plans.

A mix of two and three-bedroom homes are being proposed for the Arundel Avenue site, which is set within the Toxteth Park and Avenues Conservation Area.

Plans for the 10-apartment building have been put forward to Liverpool City Council by an applicant named as Tablecheck Ltd.

According to a document submitted within the application, the area is “mainly characterised by large Victorian semi-detached dwellings” but the development will not replicate existing architecture.

The report adds: “The scheme proposes a building that is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional design of properties within the area.

“It has not been designed to replicate the existing architecture within the locality, but to utilise a contemporary design that draws on many of the architectural features of the traditional Victorian properties in the locality, to enable the building to fit in comfortably within the existing street scene, whilst adding interest to it, and enhancing its character.”

The plans suggest the eight three-bedroom and two two-bedroom properties would provide “much needed additional housing and widen the amount, range and type of housing available in the area, redeveloping a site on which housing was previously located, in a sustainable and accessible area”.
