One of the questions raised during the consultation on the closure of Girtrell Court was what would happen to it if it was closed. Wirral Council’s Director of Adult Social Services Graham Hodkinson told the Liverpool Echo last year that the Girtrell Court site could be used for extra care housing, “There is an increasing demand for extra care housing and the site of Girtrell Court is ideally suited for this purpose which will help support the aging population whilst delivering financial benefits to the council.”

The 2012/13 asset register assigns a value to the buildings of £2,422,880.00 and land of £980,000.00 (total £3,402,880.00) valued on the 11th March 2013 (as part of its regular quinquennial or five yearly valuation).

Wirral Council’s valuation of Girtrell Court was provided in response to a Freedom of Information request made by well-known former Conservative councillor Ian Lewis for Wirral Council’s asset register.

Wirral Council’s first response was to refuse Ian Lewis’ request on grounds of commercial confidentiality.
