Green light for West Kirby Fire Station scheme

Work is set to begin on the construction of 32 apartments on the site of the former fire station in the heart of West Kirby.

Luxury and sustainable housing developer, Blueoak Estates, has announced further details of the scheme, including a start date for construction work this month.

The development includes 32 one, two and three bed apartments, utilising the long redundant site to create homes to suit a broad local demographic. The site was becoming severely dilapidated and affected by vandalism, attracting anti-social behaviour in recent years.

This new scheme will see the land repurposed and reimagined to create contemporary apartment living.

Iain MacLean, Managing Director of Blueoak Estates said, “We’re so pleased to see work begin on this fantastic site. We’ve worked incredibly hard finetuning and refining our designs to create a viable development that meets the diverse needs of all stakeholders.

“There is a massive housing shortage across Wirral and many are being forced to move out of home towns like West Kirby. Schemes such as this present a great opportunity for a diverse range of residents to own their dream home within their dream address.

“The scheme ticks many boxes for an incredibly broad audience. It is set in a brilliant location, within vibrant West Kirby, with ample parking and strong transport links. Each unit has outdoor private space, lift access and is within walking distance to all amenities. We anticipate strong levels of interest from the outset and welcome all enquiries.”
