The proposal at Bidston Avenue in Wirral, Merseyside gained planning Permission in early 2017 for the demolition of an existing derelict public house and the erection of a 4 storey building to create 42 apartments for residents of 55 years or older.
The three upper floors comprise the residential apartments, with a landscaped communal open space at first floor. On the ground floor there are 2 visitor guest rooms, communal areas, a residents’ gym, management office and storage space. There are also 30 car parking spaces accessed from Bidston Avenue.
The apartments are a mix of 1 & 2 bedrooms and have been designed to conform to the Lifetime Homes criteria, allowing for each unit to be adapted for future needs of the residents. Though there is a communal courtyard, each apartment also has its own private amenity space in the form of terraces.
Planning was granted in December 2016.
