WORK SET TO START ON DOBBIES.
City planners have given the green light to the scheme put forward by Dobbies Garden Centres.
Following finalisation of the planning process through the Government Office for the North West, Dobbies will confirm dates for construction to begin on site.
It is aiming to open its doors to the public during the 2011/2012 financial year.
The Garden World scheme will be constructed from sustainably-sourced timber and other natural construction materials and will include a range of environmentally friendly features including energy-efficient lighting systems and rainwater recycling.
It will be built on a 8.78 acre gateway site off Speke Boulevard, near to Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Dobbies has purchased the site from Peel Land and Property.
