Former Olive Mount Hospital


Olive Mount is located on Old Mill Lane in the Wavertree ward of the city. Olive Mount is located next to the former Millstead Primary School and approximately 3.6 miles from Liverpool City Centre by car. Olive Mount is located on a private road which leads to Millstead School and a bungalow not in the Councils ownership to the north of the site.





The site is split over three properties within its grounds all of which stand empty. Some of the properties have had various extensions built over the years. The buildings at Olive Mount were utilised as a former hospital and part of the Manor house is grade II listed, all the buildings have fallen into disrepair.

The site will be disposed of by way of an informal tender, the interested parties should put forward their expression of interest based on a reasonable market value offer. Their expression of interest should include the following:

  • Financial Offer (How much the interested party are prepared to pay for the site)
  • Proposed Scheme details/plans
  • Timescale for completion
  • Whether contact with the local planning department has been made
  • Proposed use of the site

 It should be noted that there will be strict deadlines in place to make sure any proposed scheme that is granted is adhered to and work is commenced in a timely fashion. There will be a clause for the Council to acquire the property back if these deadlines are not adhered to. The reasoning behind this is to make sure the area is developed and made better for the surrounding and potentially new residents.

A timeframe will be made available when the site is formally marketed.
