A planning application (here) has been submitted for the demolition of 1-43 Hoose Court. Hoose Court consists of multiple blocks of flats offering sheltered housing for the elderly. The complex is on Market Street and backs onto Hazel Road and is managed by Wirral Partnership Homes. The block containing flats 1-43 is the road facing one.
When this story broke last year, local MP Stephen Hesford was quoted as saying he would be investigating the demolition plans. I am not aware if anything came of that.
On the submitted forms it is stated that demolition is required as the property is unable to reach New DecentHomes standard as set out by government. The application states:
site is to be landscaped and remaining site is to be serviced by new boiler room contained within a single existing domestic garages within a block of 8 garages.
I wonder what the landscaping will be?
It is not specified if the remaining blocks will also become subject to demolition at some future date.
A suggested start date is 11th January 2010, completing on 26th March, 2010
