Knowsley Council is seeking for a development management partner for the redevelopment project of Huyton. Knowsley Council’s Huyton Village Centre master plan was produced in 2017 to empty buildings and promote new development.
The council’s 10-year programme of knocking down under-used buildings will re-iterate in new developments. As a part of the Huyton project, the plans were developed by architect Allies & Morrison.
Huyton will witness a new mixed-use commercial district on the council’s current seven-acre site including a new civic office, set around a new ‘village green’. The programme comprises 53 separate projects for phased delivery over the next decade.
The Venue on Civic Way will be the first building to be demolished that closed its doors last year. Once demolition works are complete, the space will become a temporary car park with 50 bays, while a development opportunity for the site is secured.
The tender notice for a development management partner puts the contract value at £128m, with delivery between March 2022 and March 2032.
