Liverpool City Council takes first steps to compulsory purchase the Adephi hotel

Liverpool City Council has given the go-ahead to draw up plans which could lead to the compulsory purchase of Liverpool's Adelphi hotel, one of the largest properties within the 52-strong Britannia Hotels portfolio.

The council's cabinet has approved that a scheme should be drawn up to rejuvenate a gateway area in the city centre, which will link the £2b Knowledge Quarter regeneration scheme with the current £40m improvements around Lime Street.

The 402-bedroom Adelphi hotel sits in the centre of the area that is being considered for redevelopment. As well as creating a masterplan, the council will now seek "in principle" support for the use of Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs) if private negotiations to purchase properties within the proposed scheme fail. Talks are currently being scheduled between the council and Britannia Hotels.

The masterplan for the gateway development should be ready by the end of the summer.

Britannia Hotels declined to comment.
