Applicant - North West Bistros Ltd

This relates to the recently-painted buildings photographed above.

Application Number - 10F/2125 and 10L/2126
Site Address - 55 - 60 Seel Street Liverpool L1 4BE
Proposal - To refurbish and extend 56 - 60 Seel Street and 30 - 32 Slater Street, To use as bar, to include new internal structure and roof to 60 Seel Street and 30 Slater Street and demolish unstable gable walls
Applicant - MPGA North West

This relates to the building on the corner of Seel Street and Slater Street that has been wrapped in scaffolding and metal sheeting for a number of years now.

If both of these developments come to pass, it would make a hugely positive impact on Seel Street.
The restaurant bit sounds good, but then the student accommodation above rings alarm bells!

I think the student thing is a good idea. Who in their right mind, other than students, would want to live at that junction? Above a restaurant (potentially), at the apex of booze filled Friday and Saturday nights. I think that this is a good combination of uses.

Thanks Chris.

I noticed this on the planning explorer too: 10DIS/2065. It has had its conditions discharged relating to 10F/0003:

Application Number - 10F/0003

Proposal - To use basement, ground, first and second floor levels as restaurant/bar (Use Classes A3/A4), erect new first floor extension with balcony terrace to Fleet Street and carry out external alterations, including new entrance, escape stair and lobby to Seel Street
Applicant - Okewood Heritage Properties Ltd


Some pics:

What I wanted to express was the notion that the student accommodation would be funding the restaurant - which probably won't be up to much at all.
Not professional restauranters - but 'funny money' out for a perceived quick buck.

Frankly, as the parent of a student, I'd be deeply worried about him living in such a location.

I'd like to see a really good quality restaurant open up in one of those lovely rennovations on Seel Street; not one funded by students living above.

A small gallery space and/or a antique/curiosity shop such as Quiggins Attique would also be welcome. Something that would make use of all floors, not just ground level.

There are so many upper storeys of great buildings laying vacant.

I've always found it particularly odd that someone who ran something so quirky and bohemian could be such a racist twat.

Yes, I've also been aware of that for a long time - however, it is still a good shop, and one of a type which we have no other in liverpool.

It always strikes me, such as in Church Street today, that the biggest 'fascists' are the 'anti fascist' mobs which descend whenever the B.N.P are present - shouting and screaming abuse. Very Freudian, I feel.

That level of reactionary hysteria is highly suspect.

Whilst I don't agree with the spectacle of anti fascist demos, as they are usually counterproductive, I find the BNP and their crypto sympathisers to be extremely creepy, often sad little people.

It is not unusual for small businessmen who feel oppressed by both large scale capital and organised labour to become sympathetic to the far right.

I don't think he's actually involved in the new Quiggins. In fact, I'm sure he tried suing the current owners to prevent them using the name. He wanted it for his antique shop on Aigburth Road.

That is correct.

Exclusive: Christians fruit stall to return
Owner tells Confidential readers: 'Thank you. You gave us confidence when we had none'

Date Published: 29/09/2010 15:00:03

GOOD news: Christians Fruit Stall is set to reopen in just over three weeks time.

Better news: It's going to be housed in a smart four metre by seven metre stall, back on its old pitch in Bold Street.
