A second phase residential project in Whiston has been granted planning permission, along with a three-unit industrial development off Ormskirk Road.
The decisions were made at Knowsley Council’s planning committee meeting on Thursday.

Bloor Homes received a green light for its 208-home scheme. This project will form the second phase of their development of Halsnead West, known as the Elowen Garden Village.
The application was one of reserved matters, with the company having acquired the land in March 2021 as part of a hybrid planning application.
The approved site is located north of the M62, and forms part of Halsnead Garden Village.
The council approved the plans, drawn up by Stantec, for the 104 three-bedroom houses and 104 four-bedroom houses. These houses will range from two to 2.5 storeys in height.
A 12-space car park will sit to the east of the site.
The project team includes Eddisons, Lees Roxburgh, and Tree Solutions.
The application’s reference is 22/00213/REM.

An employment boost is predicted for Knowsley, as Caddick Development’s plans to deliver 157,000 sq ft of industrial space have been approved by councillors.
An extension of Knowsley Business Park, the project will provide three units ranging from 31,500 sq ft to 73,500 sq ft. The industrial estate is currently occupied by organisations such as Amazon, Matalan and Kammac.
