Much needed extra care housing for older people is to be built on a site off Woodpecker Close in Upton, Wirral.
On 18th October, Planning Permission was obtained to build 60 one bed and 18 two bed apartments on the site of a former residential care facility.
These apartments will offer 24-hour care and support services on site and enable older people to live independently with a number of the apartments designed to be wheelchair accessible.
The proposed development will provide facilities which can be utilised by local residents. There will be a large bistro on site and a hair salon both of which will be open to the public.
Graeme Foster, Chief Executive of Alpha Living, said: "Alpha is committed to providing dedicated and sensitive housing for older people. We believe that this development will bring huge benefits to the area where we know there is a big demand for this type of accommodation."
Please keep checking the website for updates as the building work progresses.
