Welcome to the Springfield Garden project website on behalf of Step Places. Once we publish our proposals you will be able to comment and share your views on the detailed plans.

Step Places have announced plans for a new mixed scheme of houses and apartments, combined with a crèche, gym and a small food and beverage retail offer to be built on a six-acre brown field site that was formerly part of Alder Hey hospital.

Step Places are delighted to contribute to Alder Hey’s Vision for the Hospital and its community cluster. We are proud that with the sale receipt from the former brownfield site, that the Hospital will be able to invest in a dedicated research, education and innovation centre, a new specialist bereavement centre and a facility home to specialist mental health, neuro-development and wider community health services.

Our proposals will provide new homes for NHS key workers, specialist accommodation for children and their families who are being treated at Alder Hey hospital, and office accommodation that meets the corporate, research and medical requirements of the Hospital.

If you would like to find out more about the proposals you can join one of our live virtual village hall events on Monday 10th August at 14:30 or 18:30. You can register for the event through the link here. If you have any questions in the meantime you can get in touch by emailing:
