Four tower blocks housing more than 500 apartments could be built just outside Liverpool city centre.

Liverpool City Council planning officers have recommended that an application to build the homes on land at Love Lane and Pall Mall in Vauxhall should be approved when the local authority's planning committee meets on April 23. Those behind the scheme - Love Lane (Liverpool) Ltd, Sourced Development Group and Network Rail - intend to demolish vacant buildings currently on the site to make way for four tower blocks, which will range between nine and 11 storeys.

These four blocks would contain 507 apartments, which would be a mix of 47 one-bed, 330 two-bed, and 30 three-bed apartments. 145 apartments will be marketed as affordable.

The project is located in the 10 Streets regeneration area, next to the Merseyrail Northern Line. As part of the proposed reuse of the site, subterranean tunnels and existing railway arches would be transformed into commercial space. The scheme will also include car parking space and communal courtyards.

Design and access statements attached with the application said: “The apartments will offer high quality living spaces with a good outlook, with premium views towards the River Mersey and will benefit from a shared external courtyard space at the heart of each residential block.

“It will be a place that people will aspire to live and work, and come to play in their free time. This will be a place where owning a car is not a priority with fantastic sustainable credentials building on the links to the city, active travel and provision of onsite cycle and car club infrastructure to meet residents’ needs.

“We believe the proposals offer not just much needed homes and commercial space, we believe this will support the city ambitions for continuing the regeneration of Pumpfields, the city core integration of the area.”

In recommending the application for approval, officers said: "The scheme maximises the redevelopment potential of the site, which is within a priority regeneration area of the city centre’s extension. The proposal would complement the residential development approved on the adjacent plots.

"The proposal would create a positive street frontage to a large section of Pall Mall and Love Lane and improve the pedestrian environment linking the city centre to areas further north. The application takes account of the sensitivities of neighbours in its layout and environmental considerations."
