Southport BHS store: 'Affordable apartments' - BBC
“A former department store could be turned into apartments, retail units and restaurants under major new plans.
Developers JSM Company Group want to transform the top three floors of the former BHS store on Chapel Street in Southport into 30 two-bedroom flats.
Documents lodged with Sefton Council state the flats would be “social, affordable or intermediate rent”.
The store traded for almost 25 years, before closing in July 2016, after BHS fell into administration in April 2014.
The Local Democracy Reporting Service said architects Wroot Design Ltd have stated the proposed development, which falls within the Lord Street Conservation Area, would have “no negative bearing on the architectural and historical significance of the area”.
