Plans for the transformation of Weir Mill on King Street West on the banks of the River Mersey - hailed as a "cornerstone" of the £1billion town centre transformation -were given the go-ahead last Autumn.

They include 253 new flats, 87 of which will be within the existing mill buildings with 167 in two new-build blocks.
