Liverpool City Council approves Baltic Triangle regeneration scheme
The Baltic Trangle, situated near Liverpool’s waterfront was abandoned by Windsor Developments after the company went bust. The original planning permission was granted in 2006 but the site has since become an eye sore, with the concrete and steel work frame diminishing one of the main gateways into the city.
However, Liverpool City Council approved Neptune Developments plans to regenerate the area and finish the building that was started in 2006. The plans include the completion of the existing building, a public square and the possibility of a private hospital and casino.
Neptune Developments is the company responsible for the regeneration of New Brighton’s promenade on the Wirral which has become a huge success. If you would like to read Pali’s blog about New Brighton’s success thanks the Neptune Developments, please click HERE.
It is hoped that within the next two months the redevelopment work will start. The committee expressed overwhelming support for the project but there have been some objections submitted. One objection stated that the ‘enormous’ building would overshadow the historic buildings close by such as the Baltic Fleet pub. Another objection was submitted by a nearby business owner who was worried about potential relocation due to the development. It is unclear what will happen to the local businesses that currently reside in the area according to Peter Jones, a planning officer.
Are you please about the regeneration project for the Baltic Triangle or are you concerned that the developments will have a negative impact on the local area?(0) Comments
