Planning submitted for Symmetry Park, Merseyside

UMC Architects are proud to be supporting Tritax Symmetry with the submission of a major planning application for the creation of a 1million sqft employment park at Symmetry Park in Knowsley.

The planning application was submitted to Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council earlier this week, together with a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), which sets out a summary of the pre-application consultation process that has now concluded and which identified and responded to key themes and issues raised.

Speaking about the planning application Matt Claxton, planning director at Tritax Symmetry, commented: “We are pleased to have submitted the planning application for this landmark employment and country park scheme. “The pandemic has had a significant impact on the national economy and bringing forward this new site will create much-needed employment opportunities and attract inward investment to this area of the North West, at a time when the economy needs it most.”

Located east of Junction 6 of the M62, the sites form part of the Halsnead Garden Village Sustainable Urban Extension (HSUE) which represents part of the wider vision for the Halsnead Garden Village.

UMC Architects were originally appointed to carry out the masterplanning designs for the scheme together with the preparation of the architectural supporting documentation for the application working alongside a project team which includes Gerald Eve (planning), Tier Consulting, The Environmental Partnership (TEP) and Tyler Grange.
