Planning consent is being sought for the demolition and redevelopment of a beachside house in Hoylake.
The Beach Road property (pictured) could be demolished and the site redeveloped if planning permission is granted (details). The property is adjacent to the beach and next to the Beach Road slip way and is one of three detached properties. It was last sold in November, 2013 according to Rightmove. The plans indicate that the property will be demolished and replaced with an imposing single property. The submitted documentation supporting the application indicates the property is in need of substantial renovation works.
Around the corner on Stanley Road another existing, more modern house is being marketed for sale as a development plot for two detached houses. Additionally, there’s a new-build property constructed in the gardens of a house on the other side of the road.
I think it’s likely that west Wirral will see more developments of this nature in the near future. For instance, there’s an apartment block currently being constructed in former gardens of a property at the end of Lingdale Road, West Kirby. It’s not necessarily always a bad thing is it? Though as we’ve seen with the potential sale of St Luke’s tennis courts, some proposed developments are far more contentious than others.
