From the Wavertree Society's Newsletter 139, January 2002:


The Blue Coat School's planning and listed building consent applications were approved by Liverpool City Council's Planning Committee on 6th November. We were not alone in criticising the shape and materials of the proposed extension, but the Planning Officer's view - apparently supported by English Heritage - was that 'the deliberate contrast, bold design and quality of materials proposed will make a positive statement in the street scene'. The good news is that the way is now clear for the School to seek confirmation of the long-promised government funding, and for the Trustees to seek permission from the Charity Commissioners to implement the refurbishment/conversion scheme for the remainder of the building.
