Liverpool set to permit 128,000 sq ft warehouse

The city council is expected to sign off Network Space’s plans to build an industrial building at Estuary Business Park at its planning committee meeting on Tuesday.

The AEW Architects-designed scheme would deliver the warehouse on the former Northern Airfield site off Leeward Drive.

Plans for the building feature a 117,000 sq ft industrial unit with 11,000 sq ft of first-floor office space.

Visitors would be provided with 153 parking spaces, including 16 electric vehicle, nine accessible, eight motorbike, and 10 cycle bays.

The site was formerly home to the first Liverpool Speke Airport. The airport was closed in 1986 and the business park site is now vacant.

Plans for the project were submitted in November last year.

Spawforths is the planning consultant for the scheme. Also on the project team is transport consultant Pell Frischmann, engineering consultant Hannan Associates, noise consultant Red Acoustics, and environmental consultant RPS.

To find out more about the plans, search for application number 22F/3047 on Liverpool City Council’s planning portal.

Hard to see this warehouse being refused within a business park. Meanwhile it’s noted that there are only 2 items on this agenda, the other being a small development on current vacant land. What a sad state of affairs, what is the council doing to attract large investment in offices and other buildings in the city centre. Can’t the commissioners see something is not right the city needs investment and jobs but we hear nothing from the city leaders that they are talking to developers to take the city forwards in partnership.

@ By Anonymous: I totally agree with your observations and comments. If PNW cannot gain an interview with the leader of Liverpool City Council then maybe they could approach the commissioners for interview and put the very valid and real issues repeatedly raised here.

One little acorn. But with this backward thinking council there will never be an oak tree.
