Local pub facing demolition to make way for a new housing development!
The Millhouse Pub located on Millhouse Lane in Moreton is facing demolition to make way for a future housing development to address the needs of the elderly aged over 55. This development is said to house around 40 separate apartments and has been produced by Warrington based Galliford Try’s.
Although no official date has been set, the application is thought to be under discussion by the Wirral Planning Committee. A further public discussion has taken place in the local community centre situated in Maryland Way, Moreton which was held during the evening of Friday 20th June.
The position of the potential development is thought to cause many a problem and without a doubt will have many objections. The scheme has already incorporated concerns from local councillors who fear that the planned building may well be too high for the area and it is also believed that this development could cause major parking disruptions, making it worse than it already is.
A letter has been written to the council in support of the application that has been put forward by GallifordTry’s. The letter to Wirral Council was written by Euan Kelly from Property Solutions and included the following;
“Galliford Try is a top five UK house-building companies and Top 10 UK contracting business with annual revenues in excess of £1.5bn. The development proposals make specific provision for older persons, (over 55s), residential accommodation and comprise 40 residential apartments, of which 15 units will be one-bed units and the remaining 25 will be two-bed apartments. All of these units will be made available for affordable rent and will, accordingly, respond to local housing needs”.
Chris Blakely, the conservative councillor for Moreton West and Saughall Massie said; “While I am not opposed to development in this area, I am not sure that this application is right for this location”.
Do you think this development should go ahead?
