In MARCH 2015 a planning application - ref. 15F/0516 - was submitted by Countryside Properties (UK) Ltd to Liverpool City Council:

"To erect 200 dwellings with associated landscaping, roads and new accesses to Grange Lane and Cuckoo Lane"

The planning application was discussed by the Planning Committee of the City Council on TUESDAY 7th JULY 2015. Local residents were invited to attend the meeting.

The Head of Planning's recommendation was that planning permission should be GRANTED subject to various conditions and a Section 106 Agreement. A copy of the Case Officer Report, as presented to the Planning Committee, may be downloaded from the City Council's website
or from here. Alternatively it may be viewed here.

A representative of the Gateacre Society read out a Statement to the Planning Committee, which you can read here. Four other local residents, and a representative of the Save Our City Campaign, also spoke objecting to the granting of planning permission.

The Planning Committee's DECISION was that planning permission should be granted in accordance with the Head of Planning's recommendation. You can read more here
