Demolition is moving forward at pace on the former annexes at Wallasey town hall with much of the structure of the north building now down.

Appointed by Wirral Council, the contractor J. Freeley began by demolishing first the South Annexe on Brighton Street in Seacombe earlier this year, to be followed by removal of the North Annexe.

As the North Annexe was closer to residential properties that demolition was undertaken through carefully removing it floor by floor.

Now the main building of the North Annexe is down, work is continuing on removing the rubble and clearing the site.

The removal of the former office buildings, which have been vacant since 2020, is being funded through the Government’s Brownfield Land Release fund.

The demolition work is an initial step in much wider regeneration proposals for the area. 

Wirral Council’s regeneration proposals for the area form part of the Wallasey Town Hall Quarter Masterplan which went out to public consultation in late 2023. 

Although the consultation is now closed details of the proposals can still be viewed on the council’s haveyoursay website.

Responses to that consultation are currently being analysed and will be used to inform the next stage of development of the proposals for the area.
