NEW BUILDING: Apartments plan for former pub site

NEW BUILDING: Apartments plan for former pub site

Land which was once home to a Wirral pub is set to be used for a new apartment block.

A new building will be constructed at the former Pool Inn on Poulton Bridge Road, just outside Liscard in Wirral. It will house 15 apartments.

The apartments will be a mixture of one-bedroom and two-bedroom dwellings.

Currently, the proposal, put forward by Barry Lightburn, is only an outline one, meaning many of the specific details of the development will need to be laid out in a further application.

But a statement put together by Formation Architecture, on behalf of Mr Lightburn, gave some clues as to what future residents and those living nearby can expect.

The design and access statement laid out how the applicant plans to deal with vehicle access and cycle storage.

The document read: “It is felt that the principal vehicular and service access should be from the less heavily trafficked Poulton Bridge Road.

“The existing vehicle access point adjacent to number 471 Poulton Road is retained for four cars and cycle storage.”

Details of outdoor space at the site were also provided.

The statement added: “To cater for external leisure space, each dwelling includes an open private terrace and areas of communal external space are likewise provided.”

Wirral Council must now consider whether or not to approve the application.
