Western Avenue and Hale Road development consultation feedback

Published: 4 May 2022 

Thank you to everyone who attended our consultation last week about the proposed Hale Road and Western Avenue development in Speke. It was brilliant to see so many of you engaging with your local area.  

With any new development it is important that we listen to the local community at key stages of the planning and construction process. We will take your feedback on board and make sure that the planning authority is aware of your thoughts and comments. 

Here are some of the most popular questions asked during the consultation, to provide context to the project.  

Q. What will the development look like? 

The plans for the site include eight two-bedroom apartments, across two levels, for affordable rent plus a 4,000sq ft retail unit. 

The apartments will be accessible from Hale Road with parking bays allocated for each home. The lower ground apartments will have outdoor space – either a garden or a patio area. They will be built to the highest level of energy efficiency.

Q. Who will be eligible for the homes? 

The new homes will be offered to prospective tenants who are currently on our waiting list for two-bedroom homes.

Q. Parking is currently an issue on the side road on Western Avenue – will this be addressed? 

We are aware of the problems with parking around this area. When obtaining planning permission, we will advise Liverpool City Council that there is a demand from local residents for parking permits to be issued. However, this will need to be proposed, implemented, funded and enforced by Liverpool City Council.

Q. I am worried there will be a rat problem once the building is demolished.

We understand this is a concern for residents. Prior to the demolition of the existing buildings, we will address any rat issues as part of the construction process.

Q. How will local people benefit from the opening of another shop? 

The retail unit will provide local employment opportunities for residents in the area.

Q. Why have you included plans for a shop? There are enough shops in the area. 

The site originally contained shops and previous planning proposals also included a new shop unit. There is strong demand from retailers for this location and a high-quality, low-cost convenience store/small supermarket will increase choice and quality for local residents. By attracting customers to the area, the other local shops should also benefit from the increased footfall.

Next steps  

Your feedback has been shared with the architect, and the proposals have now been submitted to Liverpool City Council to secure planning permission. Once approved, we will host a second consultation to update you on the finalised plans, ahead of work starting on the project.
