    Default Project Jennifer - Great Homer Street

    PLANS to build Liverpool’s biggest district shopping centre look set to be given the go-ahead today, despite concerns over the quality of its design.

    A £150m scheme named Project Jennifer would regenerate the area around Great Homer Street to include Liverpool’s biggest supermarket, an NHS health centre, library, petrol station and car park.

    Advertisements -------

    The site would also host non-food shops, as well as space for 300 outdoor market stalls and an indoor market hall.

    It also includes plans for 481 new homes in a mix of houses and flats.

    The North Liverpool project, which goes before the city council’s planning committee today, is the most ambitious suburban regeneration scheme ever seen in Liverpool.

    But questions have been raised by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE).

    In a report put before councillors CABE, the body that advises government on architecture and design, said: “The proposal is well below the standard which might be expected for a significant civic/private proposal of this nature.

    “There is too great a mix of uses on the site making it difficult to achieve a coherent and attractive design for the new District Centre.

    “There is no discernible logic to the disposition of building uses across the site.” continues....

    Despite the fact that they piss us off about Liverpool's waterfront, it's on projects like this I think we need the likes of CABE to push for better planning and architecture.

    They should of approved a Sainsbury's.

    I wished I lived close enough to go to Sainsbury's everyday.

    Why does Everton get a market this big?

    Everton= Pure evil.

    Tesco are becoming powerful.

    Maybe its something to do with Tesco's blue and white corporate colours matching that of the football team.

    LOCAL Government Secretary Ruth Kelly yesterday gave her backing to the biggest-ever facelift in the North Liverpool area.

    It means plans can now go ahead on a £150m project in Everton’s Great Homer Street, home of Liverpool’s famous Paddy’s market.

    Expected to start in Summer 2008, the scheme – Project Jennifer – by St Modwens Developments will cover 45 acres and will include 480 new homes, a new library, a market hall and 190,000 sq ft of retail units, including a supermarket. more

    Looks just like the Victoria Square development. I suspect though that these properties will end up on the buy to let market

    I agree chaps. Anything's better than the 'ollers' that Virgil, Rachel and Dryden street have been since the early 90s.

    Ged, I can't be the only person who doesn't know what an 'oller' is.
    I keep making guesses, but I don't really know.
    I know about 'jiggers' and 'bommys'.
