Maghull – Station land development starts

Land behind Maghull Station. Looking towards Melling Lane with the station platform building visible on the right.

The land behind the Liverpool bound platform of Maghull Station, that is also backed onto by houses in Grange Park and Hurst Road, has been cleared seeming for development to start.

Planning permission was given quite some time ago for a small housing development after years of tussling between potential builders/land owners and Sefton Council’s Planning Dept.

I recall that a previous attempt to cut down trees on the site some 20 years ago led to environmental objections to the felling. But things have moved on, rightly or wrongly depending on your point of view, and it seems that the land will soon be a building site.
