Ion, in collaboration with Knowsley Council, has earmarked a 57-acre site parallel to the M57, for a business park and housing development of 150 homes.
Ion’s plans will deliver 380,000 sq ft of light industrial and office space. The site, known as Earlsfield Park, will also include residential, leisure and retail space.
Steve Parry, managing director of Ion, said: “The site lends itself beautifully to a mixed-use development through the semi-rural location. An added focus on landscaping and creating an improved recreational area will make Earlsfield Park an excellent choice for both living and working.
“The access to the M57 makes it an attractive prospect for businesses relocating and the proximity to the beautiful Knowsley Estate will lend itself well to family life.”
A drop-in event, to be held on Wednesday, 3 May, 3.30pm to 8pm at Knowsley Lane Primary School, will give the public the opportunity to see the masterplan that Ion has developed for the site and give feedback to the developer’s team.
Ion, previously Neptune Developments, has been involved in various regeneration schemes including Liverpool Science Park, Mann Island and the Speke Airport Hangers and Terminal Buildings.
