LONDON-Deysbrook Barracks in West Derby, once Liverpool’s largest army barracks, has been sold to housebuilder Morris Homes. The developer paid £17 million ($27 million) for the 33-acresite and plans a new urban community.

Outline planning permission has already been granted for 400 new homes supported by a 27,000-sf foodstore; retail units; a health/leisure centre and office space. Construction will commence later this year.
