New Liverpool retail development to create 1,000 jobs

Planning permission has been granted for a new retail development in Liverpool which will create 1,000 new jobs.

The Great Homer Street development, known locally as Project Jennifer, is being led by regeneration specialist St Modwen in partnership with Liverpool City Council.

With work expected to begin on the site in Spring 2014, the scheme will include a flagship Sainsbury’s store which will be the largest in the city. Development of the store is due to begin in Spring 2015 with the opening in early in 2016.

The scheme is expected to complete in Autumn 2016 although further phases of development will follow in the Marwood tower and Dryden Street areas of the site. 

As well as retail space, the scheme will provide new market facilities, homes, 900 free customer car parking spaces, a petrol filling station, health facilities, transport interchange and improved links to Everton Park.

Stephen Prosser, regional director at St. Modwen, said: "We are delighted that this scheme, which is both needed and wanted by the local community, is moving forwards towards actual delivery on site.

"The attainment of this detailed permission is the next important step forward and is testament to the positive support the scheme continues to enjoy. We are committed to delivering this scheme for the people of North Liverpool and will be working hard to finalise the details over the next few months in the build-up to starting on site." 

Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, added: "Project Jennifer is an important progression for North Liverpool and will regenerate an area in real need of investment and development.

"We are looking forward to seeing this vital scheme delivered, which will make a massive difference to people’s lives – breathing new life into the area, providing first-class facilities and creating new jobs."
