Liverpool City Council has granted planning permission to another triple tower development, the second such application within a week.

The 381-bed scheme was proposed by local property firm Vinco Group, on the corner of Bevington Bush and Gardeners Row in the Pumpfields area of the city.

The scheme will feature three towers ranging from nine to 19-storeys in height clustered around a communal courtyard.

The development will be called The Tannery in reference to the historic tannery that sat on the site, on the corner of Bevington Bush and Gardeners Row, from the 1880s until mid-1950s.

“The northern edge of the city still has great potential to deliver major regeneration and developments like this will give a sense of arrival for people coming into the city,” said Vinco managing director Glyn Thomas. “The scheme now also helps to plug a gap for bigger, more family-orientated developments that will help to keep the societal balance in the city centre.”

The application was submitted in partnership with London-based Niveda Group and is an amendment to a previous application for lower towers and more studio apartments rather than the one and two-beds that now represent the majority of homes in the scheme. Planning permission has been granted subject to the signing of a section 106 agreement.

Liverpool granted permission to Elliot Group’s ‘Triple Towers’ project last week, a £250 million scheme comprising three towers ranging from on the edge of the city’s business district.
