Royal London proposes 100,000 sq ft Bootle industrial 

Consent to demolish outdated buildings at Atlantic Park has been secured and the developer is pressing ahead with plans to build two modern warehouses on the Dunnings Bridge Road site. 

Sefton Council granted Royal London Property Pension Fund permission to knock down the 220,000 sq ft “Big Foot” Rolls-Royce factory in July. 

Atlantic House and Caspian House, two office buildings on the site, will also be knocked down. Alaska House will be retained. 

Now, Royal London is working with consultancy Turley to draw up plans for 96,000 sq ft of employment space across two units. 

The units will be built on the section of the 50-acre former Rolls Royce complex that is closest to Dunnings Bridge Road. 

The redevelopment of the Bootle site has been in the pipeline since 2004 when plans were submitted to transform it into an 805,500 sq ft employment scheme. 

In 2018, Royal London won full consent for a 105,000 sq ft distribution unit on part of the site fronting Atlantic Park Drive.
