Liverpool City Council has rejected Redrow Homes’ plans for 160 houses at Allerton Priory. Iliad Group’s 200 apartments at Baltic Triangle were approved.
Redrow’s residential scheme on a 33.4-acre site at the Allerton Priory Estate was refused on grounds including the impact on wildlife and loss of trees and the adverse effect on the setting of the grade-two listed Allerton Priory and Priory Lodge. Objections were received from 194 individuals and organisations and five petitions were submitted.
Turley was planning adviser to Redrow Homes.
Iliad Group’s scheme of 200 apartments aimed at families, on a cleared site bounded by Simpson Street and Blundell Street, was approved. The development will include two- and three-bedroom flats across two blocks of between seven and nine storeys. There will be 4,000 sq ft of commercial space on the ground floor.
Songbird, an Iliad special purpose vehicle, is the applicant behind the project. The Planning Studio advised on the proposal. The architect is Tim Groom Architects.
