Virtual Planit and it’s sister company Planit have been working for many years with Langtree on this internationally important project. With the Festival Gardens almost complete, Langtree are now turning to the residential element of the development, as this image shows.
In 2007, Liverpool City Council granted Langtree planning permission to develop a residential-led regeneration scheme of the festival gardens which included the restoration of the formal gardens and the development of 1,300 homes. This new dawn for the Festival Gardens has been a long time coming and represents a unique opportunity to create a public park which is befitting the spirit of the Garden Festival movement. The redevelopment work began in February 2010 and will see the Japanese gardens, sculptures, lakes and associated watercourses restored ahead of its re-opening.
