Primas Law has announced it has recently advised Torus on a new collaborative venture which will see Liverpool FC’s former Melwood training ground become a sporting and education hub for the Liverpool City Region community.
The venture brings together the Fowler-Carragher Academy, set up by former Liverpool players Robbie Fowler and Jamie Carragher.
Melwood will also see Olympian Steve Parry’s organisation, “swim!”, make use of the swimming facilities.
The deal was structured and advised upon by Primas Law, who guided Torus on the multi-disciplinary scheme. Once planning permission is approved, work is expected to start on the site next year.
Simon Baxter, partner and head of real estate at Primas Law, said: “We are delighted and honoured to work with Torus on such an exciting deal for the Liverpool City Region and look forward to seeing the iconic site take its new shape.
“We know it was such a priority for all parties involved that the historic relevance of the site was upheld, so the fact that it’ll now be used to support so many members of the community is a really fitting gesture.”
