Last year I reported that the owners of the big empty building on Island Road (South Liverpool Housing) had got planning permission to change it into a number of homes. Good news for local people as the building had been empty for some time and let's face it is a bit of an eyesore.
We'd hoped to see work start towards the end of last year, but the news is that the housing association has now appointed a contractor and that company should be writing to or visiting people living nearby to let them know what's going on. The whole process looks likely to take around six months. Good to see some progress.
