West Derby Road

A sheltered housing scheme that will include a rooftop terrace and cinema room has been approved by Liverpool City Council’s Planning Committee.

Our design for this scheme on behalf of our clients, West Tree Estates, will contain 112 one and two-bedroom flats.

The development, on land currently used as a car park, will range in height from two to six storeys, reinstating the historic massing along West Derby Road and revitalising the street scene.

The accommodation will be managed by Croft Housing Association who have operated in the city for 25 years and who are committed to the principles of sustainable design to reduce the impact and running costs of the building,

“This project represents something of a departure for us and we are delighted to have been given the opportunity by West Tree Estates to widen our portfolio with this type of development.  We have listened to the city council, ward councillors and neighbouring residents to produce a scheme which will work for its intended occupiers and within the context of the locality.”

Said Adam Hall (Managing Director).

Facilities will include a communal rooftop terrace, residents’ lounges and a flexible cinema/community room. There will also be 29 parking spaces on site and all the apartments will be wheelchair adaptable.

The development aims to provide a new benchmark for sheltered accommodation for the over 60’s in the city in terms of quality of accommodation and facilities.
