Housing Plans for Fields Neighbouring Whitakers, Prescot
Prescot residents are invited to view plans for a housing development on land belonging to Whitakers Garden Centre.
Planners believe about 200 3- or 4-bedroom homes could be built on the site, which sits between the A57 (Prescot Bypass), Knowsley Park Lane and the A58 (Liverpool Road).
The land was recently earmarked for development after Knowsley’s Local Plan controversially removed its protected greenbelt status.
As no house-builder has yet been contracted for the development, the plans are in the early stages and subject to change.
According to project management company Curtins Consulting, the site is in a “prime location,” with excellent access to schools and other facilities. The residential development would include “creation of a nature corridor to open up an existing brook and link habitats, encouraging wildlife to remain and thrive on site.”
