The planning applications for Earlestown and St Helens town centre regenerations are now available to view online.
Article date: 30 March 2022
St Helens Borough Council and its partner the English Cities Fund (ECF) have prepared planning applications for the first phases of the Earlestown and St Helens Town Centre Masterplan Development Frameworks.
In St Helens town centre the plans incorporate both demolition and outline planning consent for new buildings including the size and type of buildings that the transformation might take. This is to allow for future flexibility in further phases depending on market conditions. This plan also covers the entire area of the town centre which was subject to the public consultation held in November last year.
Earlestown's application will focus on the transformation of the central market square with a new market hall canopy, together with wider public realm improvements to key high streets.
The applications are available to view:
