Hi Jane, can you shed any more light on the Pumpfields name and where you came across the info?

Thanks.

I'm not entirely sure where the name comes from to be honest.... I'm imagining there must have been a pump room or rooms in this district - which is in the Vauxhall district - not too far away from the docks and the old Tate & Lyle Factory. The name appears on the documents for the development.

The New ACL ( Atlantic Container Line) H.Q on Duke Street in The Ropewalks district of the city is coming along quite quickly now; and it is very gratifying to see that a section of the original warehouse has been retained and is being integrated into the new build:

It looks like the Elliot Group are planning on single-handedly sorting out the riverside section of Norfolk Street, as Norfolk House Phase 3 has now appeared on their website. It hasn't yet been submitted for planning, however these renders are available showing what is planned -

A disused Grade II Victorian building on the banks of the Mersey is set to receive a new lease of life as an education and collaboration campus for advanced manufacturing and engineering skills. The historic Hydraulic Tower building, which once used to drive the lock gates and bridges in the Birkenhead Docks, is the centrepiece of a new project that aims to provide the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs to support the Northern Powerhouse agenda.

The private and public sector consortium behind the initiative, including Mersey Maritime, Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) and the Peel Group, revealed a vision for the site last night (Wednesday, 9 September) at an event held as part of London Shipping Week. The project, which is expected to cost around £20m and take three years to complete, aims to benefit the local economy with skills development and opportunities for knowledge-sharing.

The tower, which is modelled on Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio, is located in the heart of the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone, part of which is focused on advanced manufacturing and engineering, automotive, energy, maritime and business services.

Chris Shirling-Rooke, Acting Chief Executive of Mersey Maritime said: “This is a real partnership between local private and public sector organisations, working towards a common cause. We have a unique chance to create a lasting legacy by developing knowledge, increasing productivity and driving our economy forward. As well as the direct benefits to employers, we see the knowledge hub as having huge potential to act as a catalyst for other developments, both in creating an environment that fosters entrepreneurship and in helping to regenerate this part of the community.”

Gary Hodgson, Chief Operating Officer of Peel Ports, part of the Peel Group, said: “We’re building a new gateway to the UK economy in the form of our Liverpool2 deep-water container terminal. We have the Manchester Ship Canal, two international airports on our doorstep and a recent £13 billion government investment in rail and road networks. It all adds up to a world-class supply chain and enviable connectivity. So what better place to create this exciting development to help provide the innovators and entrepreneurs who can lead our growing economy. It also brings together the area’s rich maritime heritage with a new vision for the future, as we celebrate this 300th anniversary year for Liverpool’s old dock - the world’s first commercial wet dock.”

Professor Ahmed Al-Shamma’a Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology at LJMU said: “It’s well known that some manufacturers and other employers find it difficult to recruit the skills they need, especially in engineering and technology. This centre will provide new and niche activities that can bring together business and academia to bridge that gap, providing local firms and wider industry with the skilled staff they need to grow and compete. It’s absolutely vital for our economy, locally and nationally, that we provide this, to ensure the UK is able to call on the talents of the next generation of engineers and other talented innovators.”

The launch event was also addressed by government minister Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, Under Secretary of State for Transport. He said: “The UK is rightly known as a nation of invention and for centuries we have exported our products and talents across the world, particularly by sea. So, I’m very pleased to hear about this plan that will help individuals to develop their careers and local businesses to prosper, while also cementing our reputation as a world-leader in engineering and technology. It also complements the Northern Powerhouse initiative that aims to help the region unleash its full power and create a more balanced, healthier economy, which we are supporting with £13bn investment in transport infrastructure.”

Outline planning permission is already in place for the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone.

REVEALED: Littlewoods building set to become 'Elstree of the north'

Sound stages and production studios could create 1,500 jobs on art deco landmark

EDGE LANE is set to become the “Elstree of the north” under ambitious plans to transform the vacant Littlewoods Building into a giant film and television studio, it is revealed today.

The project, spearheaded by Liverpool City Council, sees the disused, 4.5 acre site being reinvented as sound stages and production studios.

The one time headquarters of the famous pools empire, empty since 2004, has face the threat of demolition, as well as aborted plans for hotels and luxury apartments.

But the latest scheme, to be discussed next Friday by Mayor Anderson’s cabinet, will give the art deco building a very different life.

As well as studios, the site will also provide space for city’s booming creative community, thanks to the success of the Baltic triangle which is facing overwhelming demand for extra space by comapnies in the creative sector..

The new campus, which will span the Littlewoods Building and the neighbouring Liverpool Innovation Park, will also become the new home of the Liverpool Theatre School, currently based in Aigburth.

The film hub will mean the city will be able to meet demand for film and production facilities after a report by the Liverpool Film Office revealed in the past year the city has missed out on a potential £20m revenue because of capacity issues in the city.

The new Littlewoods campus will mean the city will be albe to meet growing demand from film and TV companies.

The studio will give access to sets of up to 30,000 sq ft, and up to 50 ft high. The sets are liely to appeal not only to film makers, but makers of adverts, music videos and corporate films.

If the scheme is approved, work on the £25m project will start almost immediately, with onsight works commencing as early as January.

Mayor Anderson said: “This project has been a long time in the planning. Various sites were reviewed but the recognisable Littlewoods building offers the scale required and is in a great position to attract productions to the city.”

The council is working with Capital and Centric who the mayor describes as the perfect choice as the developer of the scheme.

“Their experience shows they understand and work well with the creative sector,” added the mayor.

C&C has already completed a £4m conversion of the ‘bunker building’ on the site, providing 20,000 sq ft of office space plus bespoke buildings for the film and TV sector.

Capital and Centric spokeswoman, Michelle Rothwell said: “The Littlewoods building is part of the history of Liverpool, with more than 2,000 people working there at one time. We’re looking forward to bringing back to life what is an incredible and fascinating part of Liverpool’s heritage.”

Fantastic day for Liverpool, congratulations. It's genuinely my favourite city in Britain outside London and I'm delighted to see it doing so well especially in the creative sector.
