Amazon might create 1,500 new jobs in future Liverpool distribution centre
Liverpool City Council has just received a new planning application to build a 1.26 million sq ft storage and distribution hub in Croxteth, which has the potential to create almost 1,500 jobs.
According to a news report in the local media, there’s no direct link between the respective site and Amazon, since the application was filed by Birmingham-based Stoford and development partner Gallon. However, the US retailer has been constantly linked with this site for the past few years.
As part of this application, an existing school building is set to be demolished and replaced by two buildings up to 18 metres high, offices, 1,244 parking spaces and highways work on 68-acres of council-owned land.
Furthermore, the supporting statement with the new application does not name the intended tenant, other than to say it is a potential “multinational occupier” and a “major retail organisation“. Additionally, the developers argue the scheme will complement other initiatives and planned developments in the area to the benefit of its over-arching regeneration.
Any company planning the development of a large-size distribution centre should also seriously consider the implementation of a top-range, efficient system for site access monitoring and personnel management, and this is specifically Tensor’s area of expertise.
