Proposals for 420-apartment Liverpool scheme lodged
Landowner WF Doyle Holdings has submitted plans to redevelop a two-acre plot in the Pumpfields area of the city into a four-block residential complex.
Under proposals drawn up by Diaz Architects, WF Doyle Holdings wants to build a quartet of 10-storey blocks between Liverpool’s Blackstock Street and Paul Street.
The scheme, located next to Sourced Developments’ Kingsway Square project, would see the creation of 420 apartments.
Of these, 156 would have one bedroom while the other 264 would be two-bedroom properties.
Around 15,000 sq ft of commercial space is also proposed.
The company first put forward proposals for the redevelopment of the site in 2005. This iteration of the scheme proposed the creation of 200 flats. It was initially refused by the city council but approved on appeal.
This consent was refreshed in 2010 and WF Doyle was granted reserved matters permission for the same scheme in 2013.
The proposals were revised in 2018 when the developer and project team held pre-application discussions with the city council for 950 flats spread across three blocks ranging from 15 to 18 storeys.
Following talks with city planners, the scheme has since been scaled back, resulting in the plans now lodged with Liverpool City Council.
Landor Planning is advising the applicant on its proposals.
