Commercial elements mooted for East Maghull
A petrol station and three drive-through restaurants are set to form part of the wider East Maghull development, according to the latest plans from Blackburn-based Euro Garages Group.
The developer’s proposals for a 5,100 sq ft petrol station, two drive-throughs of 2,500 sq ft each, and a drive-through coffee shop at 2,204 sq ft, have been recommended for approval at Sefton’s planning committee next week.
The 4.7-acre site is part of the wider allocation of the Land East of Maghull Development Site, part of Sefton’s Local Plan published in 2017. The total allocation covers 212 acres and has the capacity for a minimum of 1,400 homes and 50-acres of employment space.
An application that forms part of the wider masterplan was deferred at Sefton’s January committee due to the lack of a construction environment management plan, and community concerns that needed addressing.
Another scheme that was due to be heard at next week’s committee – EMC’s outline plans for up to 855 homes and an older people’s housing scheme, both on an 85-acre adjacent site – has been deferred for a later date. EMC is a collection of landowners that came together to develop plans for the site’s future use. It worked in tandem with Countryside and Persimmon to deliver the proposals.
