Residential scheme planned for Mossley Hill in Liverpool


Architects Falconer Chester Hall (FCH) have secured planning consent for a residential development in south Liverpool.

Acting on behalf of an unnamed North West developer, FCH applied for planning permission for a four-storey development of 18 apartments on a plot of land on Carnatic Road in Mossley Hill

The development replaces a single dwelling on the site to make more efficient use of the large footprint. The revised design includes an additional three apartments and one storey. The footprint has been pared down to reduce the front elevation.  The scheme incorporates basement car parking spaces, as well as provision for residents’ cycles.

FCH has worked with Ascerta, which offers landscape, arboricultural and ecological services, to redevelop the landscaping to maximise the aesthetic opportunities of the site and to increase the tree coverage to create privacy.

“It’s a confident, contemporary rendition of apartment living that uses the popular local palette of red sandstone,” said FCH managing director, Adam Hall. “The development retains a large front and rear garden space and sits well within the established setting.  The use of large balconies brings the outdoors into each home and will be a popular feature.”

Other consultants on the scheme included planning consultant Zerum, and Ascerta, a landscape design business.
