St. Modwen plans approved for first phase of development in Crosby Village

St. Modwen’s plans for the first phase of the regeneration of Crosby Village Centre were given a welcome boost this week after planning permission was granted.

Sefton Council’s planning committee unanimously voted to approve the scheme which will see the Glenn Buildings South converted into retail units and a new unit constructed at 10 Moor Lane.

St. Modwen has also submitted a separate planning application for the refurbishment of the Glenn Buildings North. The proposal is for three retail units with new shop fronts within the existing building and the upper floor refurbished.

David Nuttall, Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “Since acquiring the Glenn Buildings in Crosby, we have been working hard to prepare a quality proposal to ensure their future and to breathe new life into the village centre.

“We are committed to Crosby and our plans will provide accommodation suitable for modern retailers, whilst maintaining the look and feel of the traditional high street. We are delighted to have received considerable positive feedback from residents and retailers, and we hope to move forward with these works as soon as is practical.”
