A 185-home development in Litherland is set to be approved by Sefton council on Wednesday.
The 16-acre site, which was previously occupied by St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School, is located off Orrell Road.
The scheme from house builder Bellway comprises 46 two-bedroom, 81 three-bedroom and 58 four-bedroom homes.
Bellway is required to make contributions of around £600,000 including £460,000 to provide two playing pitches and changing facilities for two teams, according to the planning documents.
The first phase of the project is expected to start at the end of the year.
Cushman and Wakefield has assisted Bellway in leading a multidisciplinary design and technical team to prepare and submit the planning application.
The architect for the development is APD, the landscape architect is RSK, Coopers is the geo-technical engineer and Ascerta is the ecology consultant.
