Ion ‘committed’ to Huyton’s Earlsfield Park housing project

Property developer Ion says it is “committed to bringing the very best in high-quality development” to Knowsley as it prepares to unveil its Earlsfield Park masterplan next week.

The firm, formerly known as Neptune Developments, is collaborating with the Knowsley Estate on the proposed family housing and employment space project in Huyton.

Knowsley Council previously launched a public consultation into the draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the 23-hectare Knowsley Lane Site, which will continue until 5pm on 25 May.

Representatives from the local authority will also be on hand at a drop-in event on 3 May, which Ion will unveil its masterplan for around 150 new residential properties and a 16-hectare employment park.

Taking place between 3.30pm and 8pm at Knowsley Lane Primary School, the session will enable the public to give feedback to the Ion team, which has worked alongside the council to devise the plan.

Ahead of the event Steve Parry, managing director of Ion, says: “Knowsley Council has an ambitious strategy for very positive change – and Ion, along with the Knowsley Estate, is committed to bringing the very best in high-quality development to the area.

“The site lends itself beautifully to a mixed-use development through the semi-rural location. An added focus on landscaping and creating an improved recreational area will make Earlsfield Park an excellent choice for both living and working.

“The access to the M57 makes it an attractive prospect for businesses relocating and the proximity to the beautiful Knowsley Estate will lend itself well to family life.”

The ambitious development is proposed to sit adjacent to the existing Lord Derby Playing Fields and Oak Plantation, which would also be preserved and improved by Ion as part of the project.
