What's going on on Booker Avenue?

There are two bits of empty land on Booker Avenue where it has a junction with Greenhill Road.  One is where the old garage used to be and the other, which is grassed over, used to have an old people's home on it.

I'm often asked about what's happening with these and over the years there have been loads of suggestions, including a health centre.

Well the news for the grassed over bit is that there are plans to build flats there.  South Liverpool Housing has been given the chance to put some flats up which will be for sale under a joint ownership scheme and aimed at first time buyers. 

Richard and I are due to meet them soon to get more details but we already know we'll be asking for a proper community consultation before anything goes near the planning committee.

You may have seen some workmen on the site today.  They were doing site tests which have to be done before any plans can even be drafted.

We'll update when we can but if you have any questions please feel free to be in touch.
