Court backs Council's demolition plan for most severely damaged New Ferry structures

THE buildings most severely damaged by the New Ferry explosion, in March 2017, will be demolished shortly, following a Court Order being issued.

Birkenhead magistrates last week granted a Council order to bring down properties from 56 to 66 Bebington Road due to the severity of the damage. Owners of the affected properties have until 3 August 2017, to appeal the decision. If no appeals are made, contractors will be instructed to move onto the site and begin the demolition. The damaged buildings have been behind a secured cordon since the explosion, that happened on 25 March 2017. The costs of the demolition work will be met by property owners or their insurance companies. The affected properties are a mixture of ground floor businesses with residential accommodation above. Affected residents are now in alternative accommodation and work to find new premises for all displaced businesses is ongoing. Also last week, Wirral Council was informed by central Government that its request for financial assistance on behalf of New Ferry residents and businesses had been turned down. Council Officers continue to meet with New Ferry residents and businesses affected by the explosion on a regular basis; the latest took place this evening; and work on a long term regeneration plan for the Town is progressing.
