Network Space lines up Aintree industrial

Across five buildings, the developer wants to build 68,400 sq ft of industrial space in the north Liverpool district.

Network Space is working with architect The Harris Partnership and planner Spawforths on the scheme, which goes to planning committee next week.

The developer wants to build three standalone units, of between 10,000 sq ft and 15,000 sq ft each, along with two terraces of divisible workspace. Each terrace would be around 15,000 sq ft in total, splitting into up to four units each.

Plans include a total of 3.650 sq ft of ancillary office accommodation.

The application site is located on vacant land in the north-east corner of Brookfield Business Park on Muir Road, off Brookfield Drive within the Aintree Industrial Estate.

Brookfield Business Park was developed in 2008, following the demolition of the Fazackerley Open Air School and the Clifford Holroyd School.

The 4.6-acre site forms part of the second phase of Brookfield, which wasn’t advanced in the immediate years after outline consent was established for up to 25 light industrial units.

Part of the site was sold in early 2021 to 4i as part of a portfolio deal also including a plot at Estuary Commerce Park in south Liverpool.

Along with the earlier Brookfield buildings, the site is close to Graylaw Trading Estate to the west and Aintree Industrial Estate and Belrose Industrial Estate to the south. HM Prison Altcourse neighbours the site to the east, with allotments to the north.

The plans go before Liverpool City Council’s planning committee on Tuesday 22 November, with approval recommended. The application’s reference number is 21F/1008 on the Liverpool planning portal.
