§ Mr. Parry
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) when he expects work to commence on the development of the English Industrial Estates site on the site of the former Tate and Lyle refinery in Liverpool; and what is the approximate date of its completion;
(2) what plans Her Majesty's Government have for the English Industrial Estates site on the site of the former Tate and Lyle refinery;
(3) what applications have been made to English Industrial Estates for the development of the Liverpool Tate and Lyle site; which have been accepted; and which are still pending.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I understand that demolition work at the Tate and Lyle refinery site started 18 months ago and is due to be completed at the end of 1984. Redevelopment will then begin.
English Industrial Estates is preparing an outline scheme which is likely to include residential, commercial and recreational uses. This will form the framwork for redevelopment proposals. Work will be co-ordinated by English Industrial Estates, which is in contact with a number of public and private sector bodies which have expressed interest in particular aspects of the proposals.
EIE intends to consult all interested parties on a detailed structure plan for the site. There have been no formal applications and decisions have not yet been taken.
