Glass Futures Site Mock-Up Aerial View

The red line denotes the site of the Glass Futures’ application, but there are enabling and access work that will take place outside of this boundary.

New Planning Application

Network Space is consulting on a planning application to be submitted to St Helens Borough Council for the construction of a Centre of Excellence in Glass Manufacturing and Innovation to be located adjacent to the St Helens Linkway and the St Helens RFC’s Totally Wicked Stadium.

The new facility will be occupied by Glass Futures Ltd, an established not for profit organisation. Glass Futures has recently secured support from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) towards the specialist fit out of the facility. The project presents a major regeneration and economic development opportunity for the St Helens Borough and wider Liverpool City Region and will deliver substantial inward investment, positive economic growth and job opportunities for the local area.

This is a chance for you to have a look at the proposed development and we would welcome any feedback on the scheme and plans prior to the submission of a planning application.
