2 & 2A Tizard Road
Major concerns have been raised about a proposed new development at 2 & 2A Tizard Road, Birkenhead.
The proposal is to build a four-story, ten apartment development on a property that is zoned Single House, intended for low-density residential development.
There are some significant environmental concerns resulting from such a development on a fragile cliff face, as well as the precedent it would set if it is approved.
