Plans for more than 200 homes close to a busy road in Thornton are among the biggest plans submitted in our region this week.

There are also plans for homes in Woolton and the renovation of part of a building in Liverpool city centre for planners to consider.

While much of the focus this week was on proposals for Everton's new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock, which was approved by planners on Tuesday, there have still been other proposals being submitted across our region.

Here is more information about the Thornton homes - and the other proposals handed to planning departments across our region.

Farm set to be demolished for homes

Castle Green and Forth Homes' plans, handed to Sefton Council's planning department earlier this week, would see 206 homes built off Holgate in Thornton.

An separate application for new homes in the area in Decembersaw residents complain about the effect on traffic because of proximity to the A565.

The development proposals, which also includes plans for private car parking for all the homes and landscaping in the development, would be built on the area currently occupied by Orchard Farm.

According to the plans, the farm is set to be demolished.

A report attached to the said the site is in an appealing location, with a large number of amenities for future residents.

The report said "Overall, it has been demonstrated that the Site is highly accessible with very good access to education, shops, public transport, healthcare and leisure/recreation facilities.

"It represents a sustainable location for the proposed development, and which has already been established through its allocation for housing in the Sefton development plan."

Under the plans, there would be 68 two bedroom, 87 three bedroom and 51 four bedroom homes, all comprising a mix of detached and semi-detached.

An old basement bar in Castle Street could become a gym

A former bar at 14 Castle Street could be turned into a gym under plans submitted to Liverpool Council.

According to the proposals, from M & A Design, the space in the basement would become a "personal training gym", with the space being completely renovated.

The area has been unchanged for decades and the report submitted to planners said renovating it would allow it to be brought back into use.

The report said: "The basement is in poor decorative condition and is not used. As with other similar fine commercial buildings in the business district dating from this era, this building is thus underused."

Ten homes and a bat roost in Woolton

A smaller development in Woolton could also be built, with a bat roost also being constructed nearby. This development would be located to the west of Woolton Manor and east of Hillfoot Road.

Details on this application from Susan Clement-Evans are currently limited, but according to plans submitted to Liverpool Council, the homes will consist of large four and five bedroom homes.

The development proposed is the erection of 10 single storey/partly subterranean detached 4/5 bedroom executive family dwelling houses, each with an integral double garage and driveway, private accessible green roofs and sunken gardens, and associated hard and soft landscaping

A separate application for the roost said that the bat shelter is part of a wider restoration of part of the site for "convalescent" use.

There would also be restoration to other outdoor space on the site, potentially including a new fountain, as part of the proposals.
