PLANNING I Host of Liverpool schemes approved

Work can start on four projects comprising a total of more than 1,200 apartments following approvals by Liverpool City Council’s planning committee.

The September committee approved a 198-apartment scheme by Blok Architecture, and a student accommodation project designed by L7, in addition to approving the plans to offset financial contributions with additional landscaping at two projects cleared earlier this year.


Hardman House & Haigh Building

L7 Carpenter

Developer: Liverpool Edge, known as Carpenter Investments

Architect: L7

Proposal: Demolish properties on site, and build two interlinked blocks of student accommodation in an L-shape, at between five and eight storeys. A second five-storey building would be constructed for teaching uses.

Apartments: 51 clusters flats

Bedrooms: 355

Commercial units: Five

Land between Sefton Street and Caryl Street

Eloquent Global

Developer: Eloquent Global

Architect: Blok Architecture

Storeys: Two buildings of eight and six floors each

Apartments: 198

Offices: 6,000 sq ft

Proposal: Submitted by Roman Summer Associates, the scheme is to have 6,200 sq ft of office space at ground floor and includes 110 car parking spaces. Of the flats, 147 are one-bed and the rest two-bedroom. Deferred from August’s planning meeting to allow for more information regarding wheelchair access.

Bevington Bush

Developer: Nived Group

Architect: Falconer Chester Hall

Apartments: 380

Proposal: Approved in April, the scheme returned to committee in order to sign-off the developer’s proposed £994,000 landscaping plan, allowing it to reduce Section 106 payments to £75,000.

Section 106 agreements are attached to planning permissions, and are conditions negotiated between the council and developer to offset potential negative impacts of certain developments.

Freemasons Row

Freemasons Row FCH

Developer: Vinco Group

Architect: Falconer Chester Hall

Apartments: 664

Proposal: Similarly to the Bevington Bush project, Vinco’s scheme was approved earlier this year, and a landscaping plan totalling £1.2m is being proposed. This would leave the developer with £500,000 to pay the council towards open space and street tree provision.
