Liverpool-based urban regeneration specialist Neptune Developments has received planning approval for their £14.5m scheme to transform the seafront area of Southport.
Plans for a four-star hotel and casino, extended conference facilities and improvements of the public space have been given the go ahead by Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council.
The scheme for the redevelopment of the Floral Hall Gardens site includes the provision of a 133-bed four-star hotel, a casino, restaurants and bars together with a new conference and exhibition space for the neighbouring Floral Hall conference venue.
The centrepiece is a new public Plaza overlooking Marine Lake, offering views of the coastline, north Lancashire and beyond to the Lake District.
Steve Parry, managing director of Neptune, said: ‘Our aim is to provide a high quality enhancement of the area through appropriate design and materials, in line with Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council’s vision.’
The scheme will also provide improved pedestrian areas along the Promenade, within the development site, and along Marine Lake.
