Edge Lane | Mixed Use | Proposed

Plans for a cinema, bowling alley and gym on Edge Lane retail park have been submitted.

The application for land on the park, between Montrose Way, Edge Lane and the railway, would see one retail unit, five restaurants and a three-storey leisure facility built.

The plans are part of a £200m redevelopment scheme for Edge Lane which will include new businesses, offices and housing.

The new proposals, from Derwent Construction Limited, are for a “statement building” which would include a bowling alley, cinema and gym.

The plans would also include 281 parking spaces and 112 bike spaces. The design statement for the proposals, written by agent Aylward Town Planning, said: “The proposed new leisure unit will provide a statement building to serve the requirements of a cinema, bowling alley and gym to meet market requirements of this format and in this location.

“The scheme also provides five family restaurants that would deliver a cohesive opportunity for evening economy uses and complements the retail uses proposed on this site and already approved in the immediate vicinity.

“Finally, the development provides a non-food retail unit which would be targeted at fashion retailers.”

The building would include a bowling alley on the ground floor, a cinema on the first floor and a gym on the second floor. The application is set to run “in tandem” with plans for retail units on the former Ian Skelly site, on Mill Lane.

The design statement said: “The overall aims of the Edge Lane redevelopment are to produce a primary gateway into the site and create a positive image for Liverpool, while offering opportunities for new and improved employment, retail, leisure, open space and residential development to compliment the work already undertaken.”

Residents have until January 1 to comment on the proposals.

Initial plans for a revamp of the retail park were approved in 2010, but there had been concerns that some of the planning conditions would fail to attract businesses to the site.

New proposals for the Edge Lane area were approved in January.

In August, council leaders gave themselves the power to use compulsory purchase orders to force the sale of homes and businesses in the area, but said it would be used as a last resort.

Historic tenement building Eldon Grove could get summer rebirth



A historic Liverpool tenement block could begin its new future as early as next summer.

Eldon Grove in Vauxhall will be turned into 45 new homes if Liverpool councillors give plans the go-ahead.

The ECHO revealed in July the 90-year-old building was in the process of being transferred to housing group Liverpool Mutual Homes and that a planning application was due to be submitted in September.

Three months later and that still hasn’t happened but Liverpool council says progress has been made with legal discussions and a new lease of life for the site is not far off.

Eldon Grove is the last remaining original-style tenement building in the city and the building’s plight has previously been highlighted in the ECHO’s successful Stop The Rot campaign.

A spokesman for Liverpool council told the Sunday ECHO: “We are making good progress with sorting out the legal issues associated with the site so that we can deliver a scheme in partnership with Liverpool Mutual Homes which will deliver 45 affordable properties and bring a listed building back into use.

“A report is being prepared for the cabinet to consider, and subject to their approval and planning permission we hope that work will start on site by next summer.”

Eldon Grove was originally constructed as part of a labourers’ village and was officially opened by the Countess of Derby in 1912.

It was the first accommodation in the city to consist of blocks of balcony- access flats.

The tenement building is now recognised as an important part of Liverpool’s architectural heritage. It was last used as student accommodation, but has stood derelict for years.

Legendary Liverpool FC manager Bill Shankly was once pictured watching a game of street football at one of the Eldon Grove flats.

If it has been a long wait, hopefully it will be worth it. Regardless, it will be a welcome, and quality, addition.

Advanced Supplier Park | Wirral Waters | Proposed



Quote:
Major manufacturers are demanding more efficient supply-chains. For suppliers to major OEMs in the automotive, aerospace, maritime, rail and energy sectors, proximity and access is increasingly important. Wirral is ready to play its part.

Work is underway to create a new Advance Supplier Park to serve UK manufacturing. Integral to the Wirral Waters Enterprise Zone vision, the first phase comprises around 10,000 sq m (100,000 sq ft) of B2/B8 development.
Peel plans Wirral manufacturing plant

Peel is looking for a contractor to build a £35m manufacturing facility at the Wirral Waters site, in a scheme called Project Perch.

According to tender documents, the warehouse will be used for the manufacturing of large components within the energy sector.

The wider Wirral Waters project proposed by Peel Group on 500 acres of Birkenhead dockland, was granted outline planning permission in 2012. The development of a new Wirral Metropolitan College Campus is currently on site as the first phase.

The deadline for receipt of tenders is 8 December at noon. Walker Sime is managing the project on behalf of Peel. Further upstream on the River Mersey, Peel owns a majority stake in shiprepairer and engineering business Cammell Laird, which makes parts for the offshore wind and nuclear industries.

DONG confirms new Liverpool wind farm

A new wind farm off the coast of Liverpool Bay will go ahead as Danish firm DONG Energy has finalised its investment plans.

The Burbo Bank Extension wind farm – so-called because there is already a wind farm in the same waters – will supply around 180,000 UK households.

Its total capacity of 258 megawatts (MW) is expected to be fully hooked up to the grid in 2017.

Executive Vice President Samuel Leupold said: “I am very pleased that with this final investment decision we can now begin the construction of Burbo Bank Extension… This wind farm will support green growth and employment in the UK.”

Energy Secretary Ed Davey welcomed the news as evidence the UK is “providing certainty for investors, resulting in a steady stream of private funding for renewable electricity projects and the creation of thousands of green jobs.”
