Maybe because of the party wall with the cinema?

Nope, it was built in the late 90's, and is just the same construction as the rest of the retail park.

To be honest with you, given the cinema is due to be demolished as well as in due course, I don't know why they don't just wait and knock them both down together. It would certainly avoid difficulties arising from demolishing close to an active site and a party wall.

Don't think they share a party wall. Went past today and it looks like there's about a foot between the two individual structures

The following was approved with conditions last Thursday.

From the Planning Explorer -

Quote:
Application Number - 12F/2662
Site Address - Land to the south of Edge Lane - bounded by Edge Lane to the north, Milton Road to the west, Crawford Way and Pighue Lane to the south, and Binns Road and Rathbone Road to the east, Liverpool, L13
Proposal - To vary conditions 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 22, 27, 28, 32 and 35 attached to 10F/2235 so as to allow commencement of an initial phase of development adjacent to Binns Road
Applicant - Derwent Holdings Ltd.
Details from the Related Documents -

Quote:
These variations of conditions are sought in order to allow development to commence on an initial phase, hereby referred to as Phase 0, in the short term by amending conditions so that details that are not relevant to the development of Phase 0 are not required to be submitted prior to commencing works on Phase 0. This will allow the applicant to bring forward the regeneration of this site, securing early investment and helping to deliver economic benefits for the area.
Here's a map, also taken from the Related Documents -


Copyright to the copyright holder. Shown here for informational purposes only.

Phase 0 will consist of the area outlined in green, to the other side of the railway line. The area outlined in red will be known as Phase 1, and will come later. For reference, Edge Lane runs top to the bottom towards the left of the image, while the traffic roundabout visible right of centre is the existing roundabout outside the cinema. Ignore the red outline to the bottom right, that merely shows the lower level of parking on the uncropped image.

So if I'm reading that correctly it's the area where the half finished skeleton of a building is now? Sooner they get going with this the better, the whole of Edge Lane from the former Ian Skelly site right down to the Littlewoods building is a shambles. It gives a terrible impression of the city.

Yep, that's right.

Even though it's only a small section, just seeing anything happen on-site here will be a big step forward.

Looks like Binns Road is to be removed and another built if I'm reading that map correctly.

Looking at that map - the retail park as it stands where comet and currys are now will just be part of the new development for now. To tell the truth, I would not be sad if it stayed like that and Rathbone park was just redeveloped as a park. They could just develop the old factory/units where they made mugs and sold paint to act as a threshold on Edge lane. maybe even facing something onto a new Rathbone park?

Interested to see the new bridge(?) across the railway behind where I'd imagine dreams and JJb used to be.

Be really good to get those first new frontages onto Edge lane aswell.

A large poster went up on the site last week advertising for tenants, it looks to have renderings on it. So they must exist somewhere other than the poster.

They are on page one of this thread by the looks of the plan. Nothing on it looks like it is different from those renders.

They're not hanging about for once, they were on site this morning and look to have made a bit of progress already. I see GVA are handling the marketing for it so I tried to find a bit more detail but after 10 minutes reading their corporate twaddle and trying to navigate their shittily designed site I just feel like punching myself in the face.

Looks like good news in the echo and post. I just hope it's not another false dawn. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/2012/...0252-32464109/

This looks interesting:

'And eventually revenues from the complex will be passed to a charitable fund which could bring untold benefits to the city'.

This story fits perfectly with the recent planning application, hopefully another biggie to look forward to in the coming year, it certainly looks like.

Quote:
£200m Liverpool Edge Lane retail complex plan to bring 400 jobs

LIVERPOOL Council bosses have struck a deal which will see £200m pumped into the revamp of Edge Lane.

They say up to 4,000 much-needed jobs in construction and retail will be created by the ambitious plans.

And eventually revenues from the complex will be passed to a charitable fund which could bring untold benefits to the city.

The good news comes after long- term negotiations between Mayor Joe Anderson and Derwent Holdings – which is owned by Isle of Man-based Albert Gubay – finally came to a conclusion.

Mayor Anderson said: “This is an ambitious project, made all the more challenging by the tough economic times.

“But we are determined to make it happen, because we know how important it is to rejuvenate this major city gateway, delivering excellent retail and leisure facilities and creating thousands of new jobs for local unemployed people.

“That’s why I made it a priority to sit down with Mr Gubay and work through the challenges.

“We have held really positive discussions and I’m delighted that we have now reached a point where, working together, we are overcoming the barriers facing us and moving things forward.

“It’s great news for the city that work on this exciting scheme is officially starting on-site. It’s now all systems go, and I’m looking forward to us pressing ahead, in the coming months, with making our vision for this part of the city a reality.”

This city is in for the weirdest roughest white knuckle ride with Uncle Joe......one day running with the foxes and painting a picture of a f!!!!!xxd city about to riot, covered with destitution, desparation and anger (one right out of the Militant hand book) and then on day two he is dressed in scarlet on horseback, treating with capitalists, larding his credentials as a man of action (in the real world where progress is born out of stabilty and 'getting on with it')

Only in Liverpool.

For all our sakes......the messaage has got to go out.





FFS......... JOE..........GET A GRIP
