Walton Hospital earmarked for mixed-use scheme

Plans have been submitted to Liverpool City Council for the development of 195 homes and a 19,000 sq ft Aldi foodstore on the site of the former Walton Hospital off Rice Lane.

The residential aspect of the scheme will be delivered jointly by Mulbury Homes and the Riverside Group. The homes will be made up of a mix of 135 houses, six bungalows and 51 apartments.

Derwent Lodge Estates is the owner of the 13.5-acre site, which is next to the recently opened Clock View Hospital.

Walton Hospital closed in 2010 and some of the buildings were demolished in 2011. The listed Clock Tower and adjoining wings were retained and converted into apartments.

The planning application was submitted by Eden Building Design, The Harris Partnership, Vector Design Concepts and JLL.
