Euro Garages has outlined plans to build a petrol station, two drive-through restaurants and a coffee shop on agricultural land just off Junction 1 of the M58 near Maghull, paving the way for a major mixed-use development in the area.
The proposals for the five-acre agricultural site off Maghull Lane and School Lane include a 5,100 sq ft petrol filling station; two drive-through restaurants of 2,500 sq ft each; and a drive-through coffee shop of 2,200 sq ft. Euro Garages said this would create “a significant amount of jobs” for the local area.
A new spine road will link School Road to the development, and will also provide access to a neighbouring site, again used as agricultural land, which is likely to come forward as employment land in future.
Land to the North and West of the site has also been designated for housing, with 855 homes set to be built in the area; this is being brought forward by the East Maghull Consortium, while to the south of the site, Persimmon and Countryside Homes also have permission for a residential-led mixed-use development.
Highways England is also set to undertake a series of improvement works to improve access to the M58.
The professional team on Euro Garages’ project includes PWA Planning; DEP as landscape architect; ADS Design as architect; Leigh Ecology; Curtins; and Capita as transport consultant.
