Town Meadow Station – Yes or No?

For the last 20 years, the suggestion of a new station between Moreton and Meols has been on and off the agenda of the Council and Merseytravel.  Both sides blamed each other at various points and both claimed a lack of money. 

For the last 18 months, I have been discussing with the Council and Merseytravel the need for them to look again at this issue and for them to consult with people who live here on what, if anything, should happen once and for all. 

The original plan, before most of this area was developed, would have seen a new footbridge over the Arrowe Brook and the new station (provisionally called ‘Town Meadow Station’) located near what is now the top of Millhouse Lane. 

However, as the area is now mainly residential, the Council and Merseytravel need to decide, after consultation, whether a station is still viable.  The land for such a station has, at my insistence, been protected and is available for such a development. 

In the meantime, I would really like to know your views on this issue.   You can post your comments on this site, or email me by clicking here

Out and About in the Town!

LAST night I was out with the team calling on people in Childwall Avenue, Childwall Close, Oak Avenue, Oak Close, Cranbourne Avenue and Hoylake Road.

Many people told us how delighted they were with the work we were doing, and were particularly pleased with our efforts to try to stop the unwanted telephone mast on Hoylake Road.

Some people raised issues with us about road safety, streetlighting and Dog Fouling.  I will be writing to Council Officers to make them aware of the issues that people have highlighted, and ensuring that they are dealt with without any delay.

Thanks to everyone who opened their doors to us.  Your views our very important to us..

Leasowe Lighthouse – Community Dig

READERS will be aware that a ‘Community Dig’ will be held at Leasowe Lighthouse  shortly.  Before the dig commences Wirral Council has, at our request organised a briefing session for members of the public. This briefing will be held at Lingham Primary School, Town Meadow Lane, Moreton this Wednesday 19th September, commencing at 7:30pm and will last for about 90 minutes.  

If you are interested in joining the dig this is an opportunity to learn more about it and sign up to help. 

The launch of the dig will be on Monday 24th September at 10am with the Mayor of Wirral, who will open the programme by helping dig the first excavation.

Thanks a Bunch – Wirral Council!

THE picture above shows the blot on the landscape that has appeared because of the error made by Wirral Council’s planning department! 

This eyesore cannot be allowed to stay and the Council MUST consider discontinuation in order to have this mast and the cabinets removed.

Residents of moreton should not, and will not accept this situation!

Come on Wirral Council, do the only decent thing and sort this mess out once and for all!

Road and Pavement repairs – Your say!

It’s at this time of the year that the Council’s Technical Services Department (Highways Engineers) start surveying all the roads and pavements across the Borough to determine which ones should be included in next years Structural maintenance programme.

Technical Services are asking Councillors, Area Fora and individuals for help in providing this list of roads and pavements (not potholes, street lighting or other highway issues). 

Do you know of a road or pavement that’s in need of repair and or resurfacing?  If you do contact us through this site and we will make sure your suggestion is put forward for consideration.
