Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
I have noticed that there is a pile of debris dumped in the drive into Ivy Farm....I assume this is to deter someone ?...
This is a fine building with hand made bricks, just going to rack and ruin...I drive past it every day and it distresses me to to see the state it is in. It looks as the Council are deliberately letting it go downhill until it has to be demolished for safety reasons.
If Wirral cannot afford to care for it, it should be sold to someone who will..obviously with restrictions to preserve its integrity. Is it not listed anyway ?
Yours faithfully,

Doris Pritchard

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Ms Pritchard

 

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the preservation of Ivy Farm. 

 

We can confirm that Ivy Farm is owned by Wirral Council and is not
currently for sale. However the Council is currently in the process of
procuring a partner organisation to create a jointly owned development
company called the Wirral Growth Company.  A number of assets, including
Ivy Farm, have been identified for discussion with the Growth Company, so
in the meantime the property will not be offered for sale on the open
market.

 

Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention and we trust this
information is of use to you.

 

Kind regards

 

 

Lynette Paterson

Richard, regret I think that is a different Ivy Farm.
I believe the requester is referring to Ivy Farm, Arrowe Park Rd, Wirral CH49 5LW
