Plans approved for Mariners Park Community Hub
22 November 2011
Planning has been gained for the Mariners Park Community hub in Wallasey. The scheme comprises a community ‘social’ hub with eighteen flats over.
Mariners Park is a retirement community of 109 dwellings plus care home. Client Nautilus International (trade union and professional organisation for some 24,000 maritime professionals) have been listening to what residents have told them about the lack of proper community facilities on the Park and that sharing a facility within the current Care Home was not appropriate. People have asked for a purpose-built facility with access to things like a laundry, large meeting rooms and a cafe.
They know from resident feedback that some of the existing properties are small, inaccessible and no longer meet the needs of older people. The project will ensure that the facilities provided are fit for purpose and will meet the needs of residents now and for many years to come, which would have been increasingly difficult to achieve with the existing ageing properties.
Designed by our Manchester office, the project reflects the nautical / maritime themes of the Merseyside location with art deco features inspired by the 1920s classic period of ship design. The building exploits views across to Liverpool making the hub a perfect location for the ex mariner residents of the park.
The ground floor will be dedicated to high quality communal facilities with eighteen apartments arranged on three floors above plus a roof level observation deck overlooking the Mersey.
Both Nautilus and Pozzoni believe this is a high quality residential scheme that makes effective use of the site and fulfils a need within the community.
