Prescot Park resi moves to next stage

The first phase of construction work at a 60-acre site in Prescot, Knowsley, with planning permission for 650 homes is due to complete next month.

The scheme at the former BICC Rod Rollers factory plot is being delivered by developer and site owner Prescot Business Park, a joint venture between industrial property specialist Michael James and TJ Morris founder Tom Morris.

The developer was granted planning permission for an 84,000 sq ft commercial and industrial waste facility on the site in 2011. However construction never progressed, and the developer then reworked its proposals for the plot.

The residential plans, known as Prescot Park, were approved by Knowsley Council in January 2014.

McAuliffe Group started on site in January 2015 with the first phase of construction, a 28-week programme of remediation and demolition activity which has so far seen the removal of more than one million tonnes of earth.

The developer is currently finalising contracts with a number of regional and national housebuilders to deliver the scheme, and the first new homes are expected to start on site later this year.

Prescot Park will also include a £5m Home Bargains store, close to the existing Cables Retail Park area.

The site is next to St Modwen’s Prescot Business Park, a 250,000 sq ft industrial development.

Ahh Knowsley….the heroin-addled sister of Liverpool. Morally corrupt on so many levels.

Manchester troll trashing Liverpool again. It’s very easy to be nasty isn’t it. Harder for some to be constructive. Place should remove comments which are so obviously malicious and frankly not relevant on a property development and regeneration website.

That will lead to a fair few of your comments being removed then wouldn’t it Gwydion?

I’m not from Manchester. Spent 35 years living in east Merseyside, not far from Knowsley. I love Merseyside, it’s people, places, pubs, architecture and that hard-to-fake character that once-great places still retain. But Knowsley is a heroin-addled pit with little redeeming features.

Stop trying to bully and undermine people that live around who may have an opinion that doesn’t fit with the fluffy nonsense. The animals in the local safari park are better behaved than a lot of the people around here.

Although these comments are sarcastic and to some offensive.Iceland, Home Bargains and Aldi are the only options for here and many North Western towns.It is either those or empty shops.More low paid,rubbish jobs for people in the North West.

I think that most high street stores pay roughly the same. Aldi have a reputation for paying very good wages.
