CITY planners have deferred making a decision on plans for a homeless centre in the heart of Liverpool?s night-time economy.
They say they need to make a visit to the proposed Parr Street site before they can make a decision on plans to relocate the Basement counselling and advice centre.
The application had drawn objections from the 33-45 Parr Street Studios development, which sits opposite the proposed site. One of the owners of the Parr Street complex is Cllr Gary Millar, whose fellow Old Swan ward councillor, Berni Turner, objected to the plans.
Alongside the Ropewalks Stakeholders Group and Bold Street-based shop Utility, Cllr Turner objected on the grounds that ?the existing homeless person?s facilities in the Seel Street area create considerable problems.?
But supporters of the Basement, currently housed in Bolton Street, near Lime Street station, said it would not mean crowds of homeless people queuing in the street.
