Work is starting on the final piece of the massive redevelopment of New Brighton.

Developers Neptune say the construction contract with Merseyside contractor WH Snow will see the £6m apartment scheme start this week.

It is the final element of the plans, which have seen the Floral Pavilion Theatre revamped and the creation of Marine Point, and Neptune says the total investment in New Brighton following on from the submission of their master plan will be about £80m.

Local councillor and Wirral council cabinet member for economy, Pat Hackett, said it was “great news” and added: “This is the final phase of the Neptune scheme which we fought so long and hard to bring here.

“The development has made such a difference in the short time since Marine Point opened, and its success has helped bring other investment to New Brighton, and I’m sure there will be more to come.”

The council also plans to open up part of Victoria Parade where it connects with the promenade to ease traffic during busier times, with work to start later this year.

Daniel Hynd, of Neptune, said: “We are delighted to be starting on the final phase of the master plan for New Brighton.

“It’s good to be building on the feel-good factor that exists in New Brighton, and we hope this will continue the momentum and ensure there is even more investment into the area.

“The new proposals are very much designed for the owner occupier, with fully glazed sea facing balconies, generous apartment sizes and secure parking.”

The scheme includes 24 apartments, ranging from one and two bedrooms on the ground and first floors as well as three- and four-bedroom duplex penthouses.

Neptune say potential purchasers use the  Government’s Help To Buy Scheme which allows purchasers to acquire the apartments with just a 5% deposit.

Sue Taylor, of Almond Property, who will be negotiating the sales for Neptune, said: “This luxurious development is something that discerning buyers have been awaiting for many years.”

The work is expected to take around 11 months to complete.
