Wirral Local Authority Web Site plans for Sailing School and W.K Marine Lake 15 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
Look shocking, no car park, replaced by hotels and apartrments, looks like everthing is being thought of apart the actual users of the Marine Lake.



** Original Source link **



The Sail Option 1

The redevelopment of the sailing school is maximised by utilising the existing Council-owned car park adjacent to Dee Lane.

The car park location is the perfect site for a new 80-150 bed hotel building with an integral quality restaurant and bar facility making use of the extensive views over the Dee Estuary.

In order to offset the loss of car parking, a deck of parking could be added to the Safeway Car Park and could be supplemented by parking at strategic locations along South Parade.

A replacement sailing school facility is proposed on the existing site in an iconic new building. It is proposed to include:

    [ul]

    [li]West Wirral Coast and Countryside Interpretation Centre, specifically focusing on the offer of Hilbre Island and making wider connections to the Mersey Waterfront Regional Park and Wirral Waterside Way;

    [li]watersports centre to include all existing facilities;

    [li]beach and Marine Lake changing facilities;

    [li]marine retail centre;

    [li]toilets.

[/ul]

The Sail Option 2

The existing Sailing School is proposed to be replaced by an iconic new building to include:

    [ul]

    [li]West Wirral Coast and Countryside Interpretation Centre;

    [li]watersports centre to include all existing facilities;

    [li]beach and Marine Lake changing facilities;

    [li]marine retail centre;

    [li]restaurant and bar

    [li]toilets.

[/ul]

The existing Marine Lake slipway and car parking area would be developed to take account of its stunning location and views. Possible end uses could be high quality apartments or a hotel.

Any loss of car parking would be balanced by the retention of the Council-owned car park adjacent to Dee Lane and could be supplemented by parking at strategic locations along South Parade.

I have a feeling the council will not care two hoots about the proposed "wind shadow" at West Kirby.



Wildlife however is far more of a concern to the council. I suggest enrolling the local bird watching club to the plight. They obviously have some influence "Winter sailing restrictions".



good luck

I think the best thing is to start making people aware about the plans, at the end of the day is only a consultation. If there is no noise, they will go ahead but if there is enough groups of people complaining, not just windsurfers and kitesurfers, they will not!! We need to get a wide range of people involved.



Ernie: Any chances of e-mailing all the members of iwindsurf to send comments to the chap you've just mentioned.



I'll try to e-mail some people for advice.

BDP or Building Design Partnership are a developers / designers and will most likey delete your emails unread and or bin your letters. They are looking to make proffit!!!



You woud be better directing your comment sto the coucil planners and WK's locally elected representative.



For what it is worth the council have imposed a ban (meant to last ten years but no doubt wil be reviewed before then) following government guidlines on the construction of dwellings in West Wirral apart from a 1 for 1 (ie demolish a bungalow and put up a house to replace it)
