The building was owned by the Parkhaven Trust but has become disused since it more modern facilities north of the site.
The application states that the building is no longer viable for modern day care standards, and that an alternate use would be beneficial to the building as well as the local area.

The statement adds: “We would encourage anyone to visit The Bold Hotel in Southport and
just appreciate the venue.
“We are immensely proud of the work undertaken which we believe to be completed to the highest of standards. At the start of each project the aim is to bring the building to life, to appreciate and restore its existing features and highlight them to our
benefit. We aim to restore buildings and compliment their characteristics while at the same time tastefully adding a standard of finish that would be expected of modern society when they visit a high end hospitality venue.
The planning application states that the new hotel would look to reuse the “existing internal configuration as much as possible to prevent any harm to the internal fabric of a listed building”.
