Bevington Bush set for 1,000 student rooms

Jessica Middleton-Pugh

Liverpool City Council is set to approve a student accommodation development totalling 1,019 bedrooms, in the Vauxhall area of the city.

The scheme has been proposed by Bevington Developments, which is led by director Greg Malouf, an Australian developer. The project has been designed by Falconer Chester Hall.

The 1,019 bedrooms will be split into 169 studios and 123 cluster apartments, in four blocks ranging between eight and 16-storeys.

The site on Bevington Bush and Aldersey Street is currently occupied by two industrial buildings, which would be demolished.

Liverpool City Council planning officers have recommended the project for approval at its planning committee meeting on 5 April.

Zerum advised on planning, while Planit-IE designed the public realm.

“The Vauxhall area of the city”. Ha!

Known locally as Scotty Road…

How about “East Vauxhall Heath Village” ?, still prefer my old office address in the local area Gardners Row, suggested a hint of suburbia in a sea of buildings.

Isn’t Bevington Bush by those mock Tudor buildings which they are now protecting – as you turn right at the top of Burly (Burlington Street). Ie its not on Scotty Rd?
As the song goes ‘he sat on the corner of Bevington Bush, aside of his old packing case’

Apparently it once joined Scotty and there was a pub called the Bevington Bush – hence the Seth Davy song – He sat on the corner of Bevington Bush, astride an old packing case, And the dolls on the end of the plank went dancing,as he crooned with a smile on his face. “Come day, go day. Wishing me heart for Sunday.Drinking buttermilk all the week; whisky on a Sunday.”

Scotty Road gives its name to the surrounding area (roughly congruous with Vauxhall), not just the road itself.

A statue of Seth Davy in one of the courtyards I think would add a nice little touch to this great development.
