Euro Garages sets out plans for M58 services

Euro Garages has outlined plans to build a petrol station, two drive-through restaurants and a coffee shop on agricultural land just off Junction 1 of the M58 near Maghull, paving the way for a major mixed-use development in the area.

The proposals for the five-acre agricultural site off Maghull Lane and School Lane include a 5,100 sq ft petrol filling station; two drive-through restaurants of 2,500 sq ft each; and a drive-through coffee shop of 2,200 sq ft. Euro Garages said this would create “a significant amount of jobs” for the local area.

A new spine road will link School Road to the development, and will also provide access to a neighbouring site, again used as agricultural land, which is likely to come forward as employment land in future.

Land to the North and West of the site has also been designated for housing, with 855 homes set to be built in the area; this is being brought forward by the East Maghull Consortium, while to the south of the site, Persimmon and Countryside Homes also have permission for a residential-led mixed-use development.

Highways England is also set to undertake a series of improvement works to improve access to the M58.

The professional team on Euro Garages’ project includes PWA Planning; DEP as landscape architect; ADS Design as architect; Leigh Ecology; Curtins; and Capita as transport consultant.

And a cute Gypsy site across the way too. When will it stop Eastway and Deyes Lane already too busy.

Maghull is a lovely place with plenty of green spaces, let’s keep them, by stopping depressing building plans like these. Maghull is a place people live not work. And how many jobs will this create a dozen at best? It’s just to make someone loads of money. If building all over greenery continues everyone (with any taste) will move out and Maghull will become boarded up, with an excess of poundlands, vapour smoke shops, key cutters, and plastic shoe shops. Just like all the towns leading into the city centre.

What about a shopping centre that would be ideal all these people moaning about progress for maghull who are we to stop progress im all for it .

This is yet another example of Sefton Council accepting any planning applications, typical of the people who run this useless body. They show yet again a lack of any concern or commitment to the residents, infrastructure or environment by allowing another development that will destroy the area. Allowing building of agricultural land is getting to ridiculous levels and this destructive council are allowing it with total disregard to anyone else’s feelings, bar there own greed for more income to fund poor quality services. An awful proposal that will bring very little real benefit to the area.

I would have thought the exit for pimbo on the under used industrial estate would have been a better position as it’s not a virgin site used for growing food cutting the amount needing to be shipped in from abroad … oh hang on I’m being sarcastic again.
All about profits isn’t it.

People are strange most of these complainers live in houses built on agricultural land . New developments will give local councils more money to spend on essential services and jobs on the doorstep for many of their children .

Is Highways England going to build new slip roads on the M58 going to and from Liverpool!??
Going to be a pointless Motorway services unless it’s a fully accessible junction from the M58

Three drive-throughs will certainly create a few jobs; picking up all the litter and half eaten food thrown out of cars by morons onto the roads around the area. Sadly, neither Sefton council nor the drive-through operators will employ anyone to do this.

Why use agricultural land when there is plenty of space on the industrial estate at pimbo , Skelmersdale ??
