St Modwen’s plans for the first phase of the regeneration of Crosby Village Centre have been granted planning permission by Sefton Council.
The developer will convert 11,000 sq ft at Glenn Buildings South into shops and another 10,000 sq ft unit will be constructed at 10 Moor Lane.
St Modwen has a separate planning application awaiting a decision at Glenn Buildings North. The proposal is for three retail units with new shop fronts within the existing building and refurbishment of the upper floor.
David Nuttall, development manager of St Modwen, said: “Since acquiring the Glenn Buildings in Crosby, we have been working hard to prepare a quality proposal to ensure their future and to breathe new life into the village centre.
“We are committed to Crosby and our plans will provide accommodation suitable for modern retailers, whilst maintaining the look and feel of the traditional high street. We are delighted to have received considerable positive feedback from residents and retailers, and we hope to move forward with these works as soon as is practical.”
JM Architects designed the project.
