A HOTEL, bars and restaurants could be coming to land at Omega.

The latest plans for the site are set to be discussed by councillors on Wednesday.

And part of a new development for 617 homes would include places for the extra residents to eat and drink in. Although the so-called mixed use area has been scaled down from previous applications to give more space for housing.

It would be accessed off Burtonwood Road/Kingswood Road and Burtonwood Road/Whittle Avenue.

More than 30 people have commented on the plans, with many concerned about the impact on roads in the area.

The report added: "Pubs, bars, restaurants are needed like Stockton Heath. With all these new houses being built on Omega already plus Great Sankey, Penketh, Whittle Hall, Chapelford, Westbrook, Old Hall, Hood Manor, Callands, there is a lot of people for a custom for these kind of places."

There was also a call for other shops such as hairdressers and a pharmacy.

The application does not include any detail on what kind of shops, hotel or 'extra care facility' would be built.

A separate plan for a new logistics warehouse close to the M62 on land which falls under St Helens Council, will also be discussed.

Both applications have been recommended for approval.
