A plan to add three new homes on the former Harris Orphanage site is returning to the council’s planning committee.


Plans to develop the listed building site in Fulwood face objections from local residents and heritage groups.

The plans have been submitted by Harris Park Ltd – run by multi-millionaire property tycoon Yousuf Bhailok – and were due to be heard at the September meeting of the planning committee.

However, they will now be discussed on Monday 4 November as councillors consider whether to go with their officers recommendation to approve the proposals.

Officers state they are minded to approve the plan, provided a Section 106 agreement can be secured which puts a Heritage Management Plan in place for the whole site.

There is also a second application to add extensions on the back of four of the detached grade II listed villas on the site.

The three new homes would be built to become a small luxury gated community in the heart of Fulwood.

Previous planning applications for the Harris Knowledge Park have all been rejcted, with constant applications since in 2009 all being knocked back by councillors.

You can view the plans by going to the council’s planning committee on the council website.
