Bootle flats approved

Euan Kellie Property Solutions has secured planning permission from Sefton Council on behalf of developer Brickland for the construction of a £3.5m 33-apartment scheme in Bootle.

The development will occupy a vacant commercial site in the Derby Park Conservation Area opposite the grade 2-listed Christ Church.

The site is located at 240 Hawthorne Road on the junction with Oxford Street.

The project was designed by Nicol Thomas Architects.

The units will be marketed at the over-55s market and Brickland is in discussions with a housing association to take on the long-term management of the building.

Construction is expected to start to site in the New Year.

It’s good to see the old Bootle Village and its surrounds coming back to life. Merton Road is improving too, but Sefton Council need to get to grips with the old Bootle baths on Balliol Road which is a lovely building that lies empty and derelict.

No market in Bootle for anything apart from Housing Association or over 55’s, if I was retiring I could think of better places to spend my last years on this Planet. Bootle really needs major regeneration.

Yes, it does, but the Council needs to be proactive in trying to change the image. You’ve got a similar scenario to Wirral where major urban settlements are not seen as priority focal points. It’s easier I guess in Boroughs that have one major town at the centre.
