Plans to redevelop Hoylake tennis courts have been submitted to Wirral Council.
St Luke’s Methodist Church is applying for planning permission (documents) to build a mixed, 17 dwelling development of houses and apartments on the site of St Luke’s tennis club in Charles Road, Hoylake. The tennis courts (pictured) are located opposite the car park behind The Row, Market Street.
Club Secretary Anne Cross explained to the Liverpool Echo that the club does not own the land or pay rent to St Luke’s and club members cannot afford to purchase the site to keep it as a tennis club. The Methodist Church wants to use the proceeds of a land sale to support local projects including the FUSS free school uniforms scheme.
What do you think? An unwelcome development or a good way to fund local charitable projects?
