Developers Neptune and campaigners SAVE Britain’s Heritage have been in a drawn-out legal battle over the development of the city centre street.

Today, the Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal to overturn the planning permission from SAVE – meaning the development will go ahead.

In their conclusions, the Lord Justices Sales and Lindblom agreed with the original ruling in January 2016 by Mrs Justice Patterson that the city council had acted appropriately.

She concluded that the local authority had properly considered whether the scheme would have an impact on the Outstanding Universal Value of the World Heritage Site.

Judge gives campaigners all-clear to fight Broadway Malyan’s Liverpool Lime Street Redevelopment

£35m Liverpool Lime Street project would flatten historic buildings at city’s ‘gateway’

The Court of Appeal has given heritage campaigners the green light to pursue a legal challenge against Broadway Malyan’s plans to demolish a dozen historic buildings in the centre of Liverpool, reports Building Design.

The architect won planning last year for its £35 million student flats project on Lime Street on behalf of a joint venture between the council and a developer.

The scheme, containing 412 student rooms, a 101-room hotel and 3,000sq m of commercial space, was dubbed “very exciting” by a regional design review panel, though it later had to deny a conflict of interest.

According to the developers, “Great Streets are not defined or designated in masterplans and strategies. They are etched into the fabric of cities…

They are an essential part of its story and its soul. They live and breathe with the city. They mirror the ebb and flow of its economic fortunes. They are part of its collective memory and are impregnated with its hopes for the future. We have had a chance to regroup, rethink and redesign; To reconnect with Lime Street’s personality and history and remember what makes it extraordinary and exceptional; To think about a bigger picture and a more comprehensive vision of the future…”
