Mossley Hill homes recommended for approval

Rebekah Stone

A proposal for 39 houses and 12 apartments to be built in Mossley Hill is set for consent at Liverpool City Council’s planning committee on 14 February.

The 13-acre site fronts onto Harthill Road, and is made up of the land around listed Victorian villa Beechley and its associated buildings, which include stables and a summer house.

Redrow Homes has submitted the proposal to build 39 houses, with between one and three bedrooms, and the conversion of the Beechley house, stables, and summer house into 12 apartments, all with associated parking.

The application is part of the Strategic Housing Delivery Partnership, a joint venture between Liverpool City Council, Redrow Homes and Liverpool Mutual Homes that expects to see the building of 1,500 new homes over a five-year period.

In spite of the objections raised by local residents as well as organisations such as Harthill Allotment Association, Calderstones School, Campaign to Protect Rural England, The Allerton Priory Environment Association and The Friends of Harthill and Calderstones Park, the plan has been recommended for approval subject to a legal agreement.

Objections that were raised were primarily concerned with pedestrian safety, potential environmental impact and the preservation of heritage.

THINK IT A DISGRACE IN THIS AREA
SHOIULD NOT BE ALLOWED

The area in general does seem to be getting a little too over populated and in the desperate grasp for cash this seems to be forgotten. This is regardless of the very fact that it is a disgrace that Redrow are planning to build on this area full stop. School places are over subscribed, doctors surgeries the same – the very council that is approving the plans is being selling the land to this developer so all seems very conflicting. And Redrow’s profits up 30% I think it was reported in place NW – must be all the cheap prime sites Liverpool City Council are providing.

Completely goes against the government’s strategy of building higher and denser.
