New Gilmoss community plan scrapped

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that a planned community for an area formerly occupied by Gilmoss has been scrapped. Originally the housing development was to include the involvement of Tesco’s, but in later years the supermarket giant pulled out and the new estate was to be housing only. The area was identified in 2006 as a ‘grot spot‘, and the final four roads were demolished earlier this year. Now David McClean have pulled out of the scheme to build 600 new houses, and the scheme lies in tatters.
