Liverpool greenlights 49 affordable apartments

Erin Strategic Land can start work on a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats off Netherfield Road North in Vauxhall following approval at the city council’s planning committee meeting this morning.

Designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall, the scheme will see the Coopers Re-Upholstery store on site demolished to make way for 49 apartments, all of which will be affordable.

The residential block will reach six storeys at its highest point and feature a mix of 34 one- and 15 two-bedroom flats.

Located on the land bounded by Kirkdale Road, Netherfield Road North, and Everton Valley, vehicular access will be taken off Mark Street, while pedestrians will access the site from Netherfield Road North.

Residents will be provided with 21 car parking spaces, including two accessible bays. There will also be 26 cycle spaces.

Approval of the application was made in line with officer recommendations, despite concerns raised regarding the number of car parking spaces and the loss of trees.

Zerum is the scheme’s planning consultant. Also on the project team is transport consultant Mosodi, ecology consultant Penny Anderson Associates, and arboricultural consultant Ascerta. Clancy Consulting is the structural engineer.

To find out more about the plans, search for application number 20F/1243 on Liverpool City Council’s planning portal.

At the same meeting, councillors deferred an application to retain the Redbridge High School and Bank View North High School buildings off Long Lane in Fazakerley. The application was deferred to allow for further assurance on the management of asbestos on the site.

Good to see. Looks a decent scheme – although definitely in Everton, not Vauxhall.

    Thank you for your comment. This is a good point, however the council report regards the site to be in Vauxhall ward. – S

Too high for Liverpool

By Anonymous

@ Anon 9.12am, you say that this building is too high for Liverpool, however further up the road Liverpool’s main stand is 40 metres high, or 132 ft.
Unless special allowances are made for LFC to build as high as they like.
These flats are ideal in this area, though one or two floors higher would be better,this is a great improvement on what’s there now.
