NEWS FROM THE GATEACRE SOCIETY (March 2001):

A McDONALD'S FOR BELLE VALE?
A planning application (ref. 01F/0069) has been submitted by the owners of the Belle Vale Shopping Centre. The proposal is to demolish part of the overhead walkway system, and insert four new shop units into the existing basement level, fronting on to Childwall Valley Road. Between the bus shelter and the new Community Centre would be a taxi rank and customer car park, together with a free-standing McDonald's 'drive thru' restaurant with its own parking area behind.

NO BEACON FOR THE BLACK BULL
The application for an Ember Inns trademark 'beacon' in front of the Black Bull (see last Newsletter) was withdrawn by Bass on 31st January. An alternative application for new signage has now been submitted (refs. 01A/0390 and 01L/0391). We assume that this will be for something more in keeping with the Listed Building and the Conservation Area; though as yet we have not yet seen the drawings.

APPLICATIONS for planning permission, listed building or advertisement consent, such as those mentioned on this website may be inspected in the City Council's Planning Department on the 2nd floor of Millennium House, Victoria Street, Liverpool. It is best to telephone in advance (0151 233 4547) to find out whether a decision has already been made, or what the deadline is for any comments.
