Hoylake could see the largest residential development of recent years if a proposed development for Carr Lane is approved.
A scheme incorporating the construction of 62 affordable homes is being proposed on a large area of vacant land off Carr Lane, Hoylake. The site, once home to the Ellerman Lines (a shipping company) social club and subsequently a night club is considered suitable for a development in plans submitted this week.
The plans have been submitted by a company called Kirby Park Limited which has a registered office in Caldy Road, West Kirby. The affordable housing proposed consists of 62 dwellings and include:
- 8 two bed supported apartments within one two storey buildings
- 8 two bed semi-detached and terraced dwellings together
- 46 three bed semi-detached and terraced dwellings.
The proposed dwellings and apartment building are all two storey in height and are traditional designed structures with pitched roofs. The supporting planning documentation is available here.
Is this good news for Hoylake and the local economy or is such a development too large for the location? What do you think? Leave a comment and have your say!
