WIRRAL Council has granted planning permission to housing developer Torus for the redevelopment of a former school site.

With the green light secured, Torus is set to deliver 102 extra care apartments and 84 houses on the site of the former Rock Ferry High School.

The project, which will see Torus partner with the Anwyl Group and Pozzoni Architecture, not only features the regeneration of the brownfield site, but also the restoration of the existing Grade II-listed building.

The project is due to get underway in March 2020.

“As an organisation, we passionately believe in the power of place and creating homes people can enjoy for many years,” said Chris Bowen, managing director of Torus Developments, part of the Torus Group.

“We are delighted to be able to invest £30 million into Rock Ferry. This level of investment is transformative for neighbourhoods as well as giving a strong boost to the Wirral economy.”
