We are pleased to report that Sefton Council have granted temporary permission for five years for a street-food, market, and outdoor events destination at Bootle Canalside. The development comprises temporary hot food takeaway stalls, with 22 shipping containers for food and drink, storage, welfare, site management, and community uses. The development is on derelict land previously used as a Royal Mail Delivery Office. The application was supported by our Transport Statement, and a Minimum Standard Accessibility Appraisal in the Council’s format. The notable aspect was timing, following a last minute request for highways advice, we were approached by Leonard Design Architects to assist on 29 April 2021, the application was submitted on 8 May 2021, and a decision notice was issued 3 August 2021. In the meantime, works have been underway to transfrom the area and the Council is have only one street-food unit left to lease in advance of the first pop-up event over the August Bank Holiday.
