    Very glad to hear about this! Sefton Council and the Atlantic Gateway group have worked very hard indeed in-order to bring Bootle out of the dark ages in into the new. From a bus user's point of view, Stanley Road is greatly improved now that normal traffic is now not allowed to go all the way up there. However, for a car driver, this is rather annoying if you aren't familiar with the area.

    What I would voice criticism over is the removal of those great Victorian/Edwardian houses in Exeter and Cambridge Roads as well as the surrounding area. What with the amount of money bing spent regenerating the Town Centre, surely, Public Realm would be greatly improved if the grand housing was left intact, rather than cleared.

    Whenever I go to Bootle, there always seems to be a new building going up!

    A MULTI-MILLION pound scheme will see a famous Merseyside factory converted into apartments.

    Councillors gave the go-ahead to the ambitious plans to revamp the former Johnsons Cleaners’ Bootle HQ.

    It closed earlier this year.

    Servite Houses wants to convert the well-known building, off Mildmay Road, into more than 100 flats and ground-floor shops.

    The plans will see around 120 new two and three-bedroom houses and apartments built in the factory’s grounds once warehouses are demolished.

    Servite started working on its proposal almost two years ago, informing residents the site could be developed. The firm said many of the factory’s boarded-up buildings were purpose-built for Johnsons and are no longer suitable for modern business.

    The site, within walking distance of Bootle town centre, is also surrounded by houses, meaning plans for industrial use may not pass stringent new tests.

    Sefton council’s planning committee was told the majority of residents supported the scheme, as well as the preservation of the main Johnsons building.

    Committee chairman Ian Moncur said: “These proposals secure a sustainable future for this large site and provide a range of modern new homes for the community.

    “There has been a considerable amount of engagement with residents and this has brought about a scheme which has the support of the majority of local people.

    “It is another example of major housing investment in south Sefton and will no doubt play its part in the continued resurgence of Bootle.”

    The firm’s links with Merseyside date back to 1817 when the Johnson Brothers launched as silk dyers. The firm, which is now the country’s biggest dry-cleaning operation, left its Bootle HQ for new premises in Prescot earlier this year.

    I hear that the barracks on Strand Road are about to be demolished with operations moving to a new site near to the Girobank...

    Anyone able to confirm this???

    Default Bootle Villas

    I bet there is some grand history behind these in Merton Road at Bootle Village.
