Wirral Globe: Work set to start on New Brighton apartments Work set to start on New Brighton apartments

A further piece in the New Brighton regeneration project will be slotted in next month when work starts on a prestigious apartment block next to showpiece Floral Pavilion.

The controversial plan was put on hold while developers Neptune concentrated on completion of the hugely-successful Marine Point seafront venture.

A late February start is expected on the flats following last minute design and contract negotiations.

The scheme will take 12 months to complete.

Planning approval for the 24 apartments with sea views was given in April 2012.

An original scheme that included restaurants, bars and cafes on the ground floor was scrapped.

The application triggered strong opposition with local residents complaining the scheme would considerably increase traffic and noise pollution.

Recent events have proven that Neptune developments is an appropriate name.

Marvelous, more concrete, no doubt at the expense of the well established trees & bushes on the corner plot onto Victoria Parade. With the removal of the raised evergreen shrub planters along the prom front the place is going to look quite bland and baron, especially come the winter months. No doubt they will make a paltry effort and replace the big trees with the odd sapling to compensate, which of course it wont. The fact that we need soil & large trees to absorb pollution let alone excesses of water is apparently lost on some folk who rip up all the natural beauty in favour of a profit. (no, I'm not a crazed tree hugger, I just value the established greenery and birds that rely on it!)
