Oven-ready plans in for former Liverpool flour mill demolition

Colin Smith & Sons is lined up to tear down the vacant Mill Street building, once home to ADM Milling.

Mill Street Developments wants to demolish the former flour mill in Dingle in order to restore the site. The company purchased the property in February for £1.1m.

The now unoccupied plot has become unsafe and requires immediate work, according to a covering letter submitted by NJL Consulting.

The demolition is proposed to take place on 15 November, as displayed on the site notice.

Although the site notice refers to the land’s restoration, there is no mention of what will take the mill’s place.

Also known as South End Mills, the property dates back to around 1872 and has been occupied by Wilson-King, Spillers, and finally, ADM in its time.

It’s amazing that Liverpool, granary for the UK, does not have a flour mill. It’s also amazing that Kellogg and Brown & Polsen are in Manchester

Let me guess what might replace this landmark building, could it be boring suburban semis, the kind the Liverpool planners have allowed now for decades.
They are cheap looking , have zero architectural merit, devoid of any tradition. The councillors love telling us about the city’s heritage and the need to build good quality, good looking homes.
The nearby terraced Welsh Streets show what is best for the area in terms of family houses.

Mill Street is usually considered to be in Dingle. L8 and Toxteth are not the same thing. Park Road is usually considered the boundary these days, though I believe it used to be considered to be further east.


Anonymous, there are other flour mills, and also those for rice, maize etc, by the modern docks. Nestle Cereals are in Bromborough.

Enjoyed the pun in the headline, but this is Dingle not Toxteth.

Some older sections of that mill could be preserved and reconfigured as flats or the frontage preserved as part of a new development.
Given the height of the more modern element any new development could be of 15 storey flats, and on a brownfield site too.

it will most likely be student accommodation , because you know we don’t have enough of those!

By Tracy Prendergast

Liverpool`s universities and colleges provides thousands of jobs and bring in so much wealth, both financially and culturally, to our city. The thousands of students who come here from elsewhere mostly form an attachment to the city and it remains with them .
They need somewhere to live just like students from Liverpool do when they go to study elsewhere, therefore I can never agree with the negativity shown to student housing providers ,as displayed in the post at 9.27am.
