NEWS FROM THE GATEACRE SOCIETY (Sept.2000):

CONVERTING GATEACRE GRANGE:
Planning and listed building consent applications 00H/1651, 00F/1652, 00F/1657, 00F/1658, 00L/1659, 00L/1660 and 00L/1661 have been submitted to "convert Gateacre Grange into 13 apartments, convert the former stable block into 5 cottages, construct a cottage adjacent to 5 Rose Brow, and erect garages for the new cottage and Barclay House at rear". We have made contact with the developers - TRB Estates of Tithebarn Street, Liverpool - who inform us that they are currently in the process of completing the purchase of the building. They say that they will be marketing the properties themselves (i.e. not selling-on the site) and that they see the extensive 'communal gardens' shown on the plans as "a major selling-point", to be financed by a service charge. We shall be pressing the Planning Department  to make sure that proper legal provision is made for this, and also for the protection of the building pending the conversion work taking place.

The plans for the above proposal may be viewed at the City Council's Planning Department on the 2nd floor of Millennium House, 60 Victoria Street, Liverpool L1 6JF. Any comments should be sent to the same address. Although the official deadline is 27th September, it is unlikely that letters received shortly after this date will be ignored by the Council.
