The Council have allocated a budget of just under £50,000 for maintenance work on Meols Parade Gardens. It is my understanding that the works were due to commence toward the end of September, but as you can see workmen have already started to remove some old pebble dash.
Other repairs are to include:
- refurbishment of the access paths
- replacing loose or damaged render and pebbledash to the external walls
- painting all wall surfaces with magnolia coloured masonry paint
- fencing around the tennis and basket-ball courts will be steam-cleaned,
- damaged metal posts will be repaired and re-painted
- metal boundary railings will be painted with a high gloss black finish
I published a photo earlier this year of work undertaken to repair the sea facing wall. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of the current works.
For those of you who have been away from Hoylake for many years, the house in the background is one of a small development on Deneshey Road. They are located on the site of the old school buildings and were all built in around 1990. There’s a new gated (though the electric gates have never worked) cul-de-sac called Hume Court with about 5 bungalows inside. On Deneshey Road there are 6 mews style properties and on the promenade there are 3 detatched properties.
