Aye its not long for a building on the corner of Patten Street, Brassey Street over the road from the Chippy its got a Bulding Order notice on it and if it isnt in a resonable state the council have permission to knock it down and aquire the land cause its in such a mess.. The buidling in question has been like this since the 90s its an eye sore i hope it is knocked down.. If i had the guts i would of done it years ago.. smile

which part of grange road west? The compulsary purchase orders are aimed to benefit the whole community. and usually the "victims" of the cpo's can get a good deal out of it if they play the game right and get a good solicitor, if they are a business they can get all their costs paid for, i.e relocation, shop fitting of new premises, loss of business due to relocation, advertising costs to promote the new location etc. home owners can get a cash lump sum, a new build council house of similar size/value, relocation compensation etc.

I worked with someone that was served with a cpo for his house, his family home, he had only just bought this house and still had 100% of his mortgage to pay of, which was 85% of the value of the house. After consulting a solicitor, he was offered a lump sum to 70% of his homes value, a new council house, not to rent, to own for free, and a few grand compensation. His children also had some money deposited into their child trust fund because they had to move schools.

Moral of the story, you dont get a thing till you ask.

I thought they were going to build on the area from Catherine Street upwards?

"In Birkenhead planning permission has been given for the construction of a new 30m supermarket development in the town centre at the top of Grange Road, creating 450 jobs. This is almost opposite the new 3m Lauries community centre where building has begun, and nearby up to 15m is expected to be spent on creating a new visitor centre and sprucing up Birkenhead Park.
Nearby, private finance is the key to developments around Oxton Road and Grange Road West, with investors from London backing proposals which should tidy up and improve one of the key gateways into Birkenhead.
Recently tourism consultants said Birkenhead and New Brighton were prime locations for new top-class hotels, with enough trade expected in the region to support them."

Wondering if the Grange Rd Development should get its own thread, Mods?

Interesting - apparently public consultation on the supermarket ended 08/10/07 - a year ago

Been reading the plans - looks like they aren't taking all the land on that area - looks like Yates will live on.

As far as i know it was the middle car park they were going to take, along with the old currys store block

Looking at the plans, it's going to be between Bon Marche and Woolworths smile
