Property Description

Full description

A special opportunity to acquire a substantial development site extending to 0.75 acres or thereabouts having open views across Victoria Park. The current building on the site, a doctors surgery, extends to somewhere in the region of 4150 sq ft of usable space. Current permitted use is D1 (Health Centre) same Use Class as day nurseries. Could be converted to business use subject to planning consent or the site redeveloped for residential purposes again subject to planning consent.


Boundaries of the site are shown on the attached plan edged in red, the site being reasonably level and extending 0.75 acres (3016 sq m). As can be seen from the plan the property has an open outlook to the front across Victoria Park which is a preserved green space area owned by Wirral Borough Council. The site is ideal for the purposes of residential development subject to planning consent.


The current Health Centre is built of brick with a slate roof and is extensive in size comprising a large waiting room with open plan extensive clerical area, 15 fully fitted Consulting Rooms plus Business Manager's room, Staff Room and spacious Conference Room. There are well kept toilet facilities including a full disabled unit. Below the main building is a cellar housing twin gas fired central heating boilers. All the consulting rooms appear to be well lit with windows, all fitted with electrically operated security shutters.

Outside there is a well maintained tarmac car park area with 25 car parking spaces.

In the Agents view, the building would make an ideal centre for a day nursery (same Use Class) or converted to offices subject to planning consent.


At the southern extremity of the site in a separate building is a Pharmacy occupied by Level Crown Ltd (we understand this is a Lloyds Pharmacy company). This is held under a Head Lease commencing on 1 September 1999 for 125 years at a rental of 50pa subject to an RPI review every 25 years. We are advised that the Pharmacy has vehicular access onto Bedford Avenue and the allocation of 2 unreserved car parking spaces. The Agents recommend that prior to commitment any interested party should ensure their legal adviser checks the legality of this situation.


To discuss development proposals and details of the Pharmacy lease please do not hesitate to ring Mr Clive Watkin on 07748 960216
