'Unsightly' garages set to be demolished
by Tom Martin

SEFTON Council has given the green light to plans to demolish “unsightly” garages located in Litherland.

The decision was made last week when the local authority opted to reduce the units to rubble following complaints from nearby residents and local councillors.

The garages are located at three different sites along Hapsford Road but have attracted anti-social behavour over the years.

One Vision Housing (OVH), which owns the garages, has now had a planning application approved to replace them with car parks. One person who lives in the area, Sandra Doran said: “They really aren't nice to look at. They are outdated and look like they are about to fall down.

”Any empty building just seems to attract mischief in this day and age. These garages are no different and I've heard stories of local kids vandalsing them. It makes them even worse to look at!

“I'm glad that the council has seen some sense and approved the idea to demolish them. It will benefit the residents because it will stop lads causing nuisances and also mean there will be more space for vehicles to park. It just makes sense all round.”
