Limerick-based developers have €75m project rejected again.

Limerick-based developers have lost a long-running battle over proposals for a multi-use €75m development in the English city of Liverpool it emerged this week.

Chieftain Construction Ltd which is also involved in the Coonagh Cross Shopping Centre project had made plans to build a 35 storey,160-bedroom hotel, more than 150 residential apartments and business space in two tower blocks at a city centre location but were refused for a second time this week by the Government.

There plans were already rejected last summer by Liverpool council so they turned to the government and failed again. The Government ruled that the proposals would impact on certain buildings around it and on other heritage grounds.

Chieftain Construction Ltd is based at Mahon House on Upper William St.
