Garston Flats Knightsbridge
The scheme occupies a 30,000 sq ft site once occupied by Garston public baths

Three apartment blocks approved for Garston

Dan Whelan

Plans for a 74-flat development on the corner of Speke Road and Church Road, submitted by applicant Knightsbridge Property Group, have been given the green light by Liverpool City Council. 

The flats would be contained within three residential blocks designed by architect Keith Davidson Partnership, on a 30,000 sq ft site once occupied by Garston Baths and Public Wash House. 

The three-storey Block A is situated along Church Road and will contain 12 apartments. Block B is located on Speke Road and will provide 35 apartments across four-storeys, and Block C, also on Speke Road, will stand at four storeys, providing 27 apartments. 

The units would be a mix of one- and two- bedroom flats. Provision for 41 parking spaces is also featured in the plans.

An earlier iteration of the scheme proposed 79 apartments and 26 parking spaces but the number of residential units has been decreased and a further 15 parking spaces added, to address concerns raised raised by the council’s highways officer. 

Six ground floor retail units facing Speke Road are also included in the latest plans. 

Landor Planning Consultants is the planning advisor.

The eccentric thought process of the city council goes on, in that they have made the developer reduce the number of flats from 79 to 74, and have increased the parking from 26 to 41 bays. Meanwhile they tell us they want more homes built and encourage people to cycle more and use their cars less.

Garston needs so much more private housing, no more
Tax payers “development” money thy for years has been wasted and yielded almost no results – we just need a strong private sector growth

Lots of talk about more cycling but where are the cycle paths promised. Walking and you risk knocked down let alone cycling. Automobilists don’t care they seem to own the road footpaths and pavements. Some will even swear at you, I come across this regularly. No one to complain to.

Wouldn’t see such poor quality flats down the M62!

Are these apartments for sale ?

@Liverpool Lack Romance, there’s plenty… there’s also a significant amount which are complete fire hazard due to cladding in which poor people are trapped unable to move from.

Guaranteed to be cheap but not cheerful and as ugly as a bucket of crabs.
