West Kirby Fire Station

Asteer Planning were instructed by Blueoak Estates to prepare and manage a full planning application for residential development at the former West Kirby Fire Station site in West Kirby. The proposed development includes the demolition of the redundant fire station and the construction of 32 high quality apartments ranging in size from one to three bedrooms (with a 20% affordable provision).

Asteer Planning has led pre-application discussions with Wirral Council and its key stakeholders and led the preparation and coordination of a full planning application submitted to the Council.

Following Wirral Council’s decision to refuse planning permission in May 2022, Asteer Planning were instructed to prepare a planning appeal which was submitted in October 2022. A hearing session took place in March 2023, the appeal, including full award of costs, was allowed in May 2023.
