Earlsfield Park


The development at Earlsfield Park will create a prestigious employment and housing location with businesses contributing to the economic growth of Knowsley and the high quality housing broadening the appeal of the area as a place to live.

The 22 hectare site in North Huyton is close to junction 2 of the M57 and will include around 154 new homes and a minimum of 16 hectares of employment land. The existing Lord Derby playing fields and Oak Plantation on the site will be protected and enhanced and a masterplan has been adopted to guide the development of sports facilities and public open space.

Plans for Earlsfield Park have been prepared by property developer Ion, in collaboration with Bellway Homes and Knowsley Estate. The employment park is to be pitched as a ground breaking ‘hybrid’ model where the demand for high-quality advanced manufacturing research and development facilities and sub-regional logistics business space can be fulfilled alongside more traditional office and workshop spaces within a semi-rural parkland setting.

There will also be a retail and leisure offering in the form of a pub/ restaurant, petrol station and a hotel. The site will be fronted by high quality landscaping and a new combined 3km pedestrian and cycle route.

The development has the potential to create over 650 jobs to the local economy, as well as over 800 construction jobs.
