    HCA Recent Activity

    1.Reappraisals Project.  A short update for all those who so encouragingly supported the HCA initiative to raise match funding for reappraisals to the Meols Drive and Kings Gap conservation areas.

    Firstly, thanks to the generous help of residents and a few local organisations, we have achieved our target figure of £10,000 – a wonderful testament to the value all of us put on protecting our local area. Secondly, the Council has issued a purchase order to Donald Insall Associates of Manchester to commission the study and reports. The actual contract is being prepared and validated and should be agreed soon. We are closely involved in defining the exact scope of the study, the main areas for examination, the consultation programme and to make sure that the report and management plans fully reflect current concerns.
    The process will start with a familiarisation walk around the area with the consultants on 10 August even though there will still be lots of post-Open deconstruction taking place. I envisage that we might receive the reports in the late autumn. They can’t come soon enough to help us deal with the raft of threats we face.
    I will give further updates as soon as I can but meanwhile please feel free to pass this information to any others who show interest.

    2.  Wirral Point.  And some information just received: I am reliably informed that Wirral Point has been sold by Blueoak to someone for use as an individual family home. This is extremely good news and shows that the strength of local opinion and perseverance over a few years to preserve this prominent building was thoroughly worthwhile. 

    3. Beacon Project.  The Beacon Project to convert the former Town Hall at The Quadrant into a two-screen Cinema and Arts Village with supporting facilities gained planning approval and a significant grant of £3.6M from the Coastal Communities Fund. Initial work is currently underway but has been delayed by the Covid lockdown.  Our primary interest is in the preservation of this fine, prominent building and this seems secure.  The internal project is under management of Hylgar Estates Ltd within the planning approvals for the site.  We look forward to  learning more about this major project as the year progresses.
