Ambitious plans for Myerscough

A proposal from Myerscough College for the Croxteth Hall Park campus will see single-storey buildings being sited opposite the Home Farm area of the site.

The scheme would see the college investing £1 million into the project, with an additional £2 million from the Government and £500,000 from Liverpool City Council.

A plan of the new training facilities shows three animal studies blocks along with stabling for more than 20 horses, aviaries and pens for goats, alpacas and hens. In addition there is a midden, bale yard and open-fronted shed.

The college has pledged to employ local workers and apprentices during construction.

The current scheme is Phase 1 of Myerscough’s plans for the Croxteth Hall campus, with proposals for phase 2 to be announced in the coming months.

The plans have now been submitted to the City Council and it’s expected work could be completed by September 2017.

Any plans to develop Croxteth Hall would also have to be approved by Historic England – as it is on the list of the organisation’s endangered buildings.

In addition, Myerscough College are set to further expand their learning provision in Merseyside as part of a multi-million pound scheme to revamp a local park.

Bowring Park in Huyton has received a major funding boost following a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery Fund (BLF), which will bring almost £2 million to a major project to restore the historic park.

The project will see Myerscough offering courses in offering horticulture, sportsturf and golf studies in the park. In addition, current arboriculture learners based at the College’s Croxteth Centre will also access practical resources in the park to enhance their studies.

The latest funding boost means that work is expected to get underway in summer 2017.
