Liverpool set to permit 128,000 sq ft warehouse
The city council is expected to sign off Network Space’s plans to build an industrial building at Estuary Business Park at its planning committee meeting on Tuesday.
The AEW Architects-designed scheme would deliver the warehouse on the former Northern Airfield site off Leeward Drive.
Plans for the building feature a 117,000 sq ft industrial unit with 11,000 sq ft of first-floor office space.
Visitors would be provided with 153 parking spaces, including 16 electric vehicle, nine accessible, eight motorbike, and 10 cycle bays.
The site was formerly home to the first Liverpool Speke Airport. The airport was closed in 1986 and the business park site is now vacant.
Plans for the project were submitted in November last year.
Spawforths is the planning consultant for the scheme. Also on the project team is transport consultant Pell Frischmann, engineering consultant Hannan Associates, noise consultant Red Acoustics, and environmental consultant RPS.
