New plans for former Bankfield House site.

Liverpool's planning committee is next week to decide on whether or not to give the go ahead to a new set of plans for the former Bankfield House site.

The site, on the corner of Banks Road and Brunswick Street has been vacant for a while now.

A few years ago, plans for housing did go through, but the company involved is no longer trading so nothing happened.

These new plans are still for housing, but it'll be mainly social housing for rent rather than for purchase (although a few will be shared ownership)

The committee's report, with some of the background, is available at this link.

The link also includes the other items at the meeting, which is 29th October.

You'll see from the report that the local councillors covering Banks Road didn't bother to comment on the plans.  This is sadly very common in Speke/Garston and makes you wonder whether councillors see it as their jobs to have a view on local developments.
