38 retirement flats to be built in West Kirby

Nearly 40 new retirement flats are to be built on the site of the now demolished Brookfield Nursing Home on Grange Road, West Kirby.

Churchill Retirement Living has been granted planning permission to build 38 independent living retirement apartments.

The new development will support around 70 jobs both during and after construction.

A council report stated that the scheme provides “a well thought out” retirement living space that “complements the character” of the surrounding area.

Adam Mooij, Managing Director of Churchill’s Northern Region, said, “This is a very positive result and we will now look forward to starting work as soon as possible on this new development which will create a vibrant new community for older people in the heart of West Kirby.

“Retirement housing is the most effective form of residential development for generating local economic growth, supporting local jobs, and increasing high street spend. The new apartments will also help improve the health and wellbeing of those who live there, and meet the housing needs of many older people in West Kirby and the surrounding area.

“We are currently on the lookout for further suitable sites like this across the region to bring forward more much needed specialist housing for older people.”
