A local property developer is seeking permission to build low-cost housing on a narrow site in Grosvenor Road, Hoylake.
Hoylake-based GB Developments has applied for full planning permission (application) for four, two-bedroom terraced houses on vacant land adjacent to Grosvenor Court (pictured below). The narrow site is next to the railway line and the submitted application states: “the houses have been designed as double front two bedroom toÂ maximise the rear amenity space. This is expected to be low cost rental property so theÂ design is kept simple using traditional features.”
The planning application also states: “The proposed area of the site for the houses is a vacant section of the site not used for the original application as the trees were emergency TPOâ€™d [tree preservation orders]. It now appears that the value ofÂ these trees is not proven. It is adjacent to the main railway line, but the existing development demonstrates that thisÂ site can be successfully used for low cost housing.”
At time of writing there are 12 responses received against the application.
