TRANMERE HOMES: Plans for 33 homes at former social club
Plans for up to 33 homes on the site of a former social club in Tranmere have been put forward.
The proposal, by Clay Rose Homes, seeks to demolish the former Gladstone Social Club on Church Road and build a combination of flats and townhouses.
The development comes in three blocks of homes, all of which will be designated as “affordable” should the plans be approved by Wirral Council.
Block A will be formed of 13 one-bedroom flats and eight two-bedroom flats.
Block B is made up of four one-bedroom space flats and four two-bedroom flats, while Block C will contain four two-bedroom townhouses.
The design and access statement shows that each flat will adopt a similar layout with an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area.
The developer believes this would provide an important social space for the young people the scheme is targeted at.
The site will contain 15 regular car parking spaces, along with four disabled parking spaces and a further eight parking spaces equipped with electric vehicle chargers.
Cycle stands will also be provided, with more than enough provided for one bike per household.
A key advantage of the site is that it has good access to public transport and local amenities.
Trees will be planted as part of the scheme to improve biodiversity, tackle climate change and create a more natural environment for future residents.
It is also located in an area Wirral Council has earmarked for development as part of its ‘brownfield-first’ strategy to avoid building on the greenbelt while hitting its house building targets.
