Nobles Construction Iliad Street
The former Nobles Construction headquarters will be the location of 350 student flats

North Liverpool homes approved

A 350-bedroom student accommodation scheme in Everton Park has been granted planning consent, alongside a 40-flat extension to the Fox Street Student Village and 56 affordable homes in Everton Valley.

The projects were approved at Liverpool City Council’s planning committee on Tuesday 9 February.

At Iliad Street, Nobles Construction’s plans for a seven-storey scheme on the site of its current headquarters have been approved. The company is looking to relocate and plans to use the sale of the site to fund its expansion.

The project is designed by Halsall Lloyd Partnership, and Roman Summer Associates is the planner.

Due to the Iliad Street scheme’s close proximity to student residential complex Jamworks at City Point, the council received a letter of concern from Cllr Jane Corbett about the “intensification of student accommodation” in the area.

Also near to Jamworks, Primesite Developments is building an additional 40 flats as part of its Fox Street Village student accommodation scheme. The site is next to the Swainbanks building, which Primesite is converting into 500 studio apartments.

Meanwhile, on the site of the Notre Dame Catholic School in Everton Valley, affordable housing developer One Vision is planning 24 flats, four bungalows and 28 two-storey houses.
