Decision due on new homes for Liverpool

The green light could be given to a number of new housing developments during a Liverpool City Council planning meeting today (7 June).

The agenda will include a proposal to redevelop a site on Duke Street to make way for an apartment complex housing 151 residential units, a project which has been recommended for approval providing conditions laid out by the authority’s head of planning are met.


Plans to erect a five to seven-storey apart-hotel with a ground-floor bar, restaurant and retail unit on the site of a Seel Street car park will also be reviewed by the council’s planning department, with the project having been recommended for approval subject to a legal agreement.

Away from the city centre, proposals to turn a former care home in the L8 area called Park Court into 30 self-contained flats will be discussed, recommended for approval subject to a legal agreement.

Meanwhile, 439 West Derby Road in Tuebrook could become a four-storey complex housing 39 flats and two retail units on the ground floor if conditions set by the head of planning are met.

Other items on the agenda include proposed student housing on Devon Street in L3, plans for an eight-storey apartment block on Renshaw Street, and a proposed mixed-use complex on Dale Street.

The planning meeting will take place at Liverpool Town Hall.
