Yesterday I received a document called ‘Sounding Board’. The document, produced by Wirral Partnership Homes (WPH) was a resume of their AGM which took place 29th September. You can read that document by clicking HERE.
It was interesting to note on page 2, in relation to the shops and maisonettes on Town Meadow Lane a suggestion was made to open up the empty units in the evenings as ‘Drop In Centres’ to help deal with youths hanging around the area! Hey I am all for dealing with any anti-social behaviour issues, but would not drop in centres encourage more youths to hang around?
I am of course disappointed that this site, which is long overdue for redevelopment, unlike the Woodchurch site, does not seem to be a priority for WPH. It seems that WPH, just like the Council want to spend in Birkenhead while we are left behind. I have emailed their Director of Regeneration to ask why? I have also asked for the contact details of the individual who made the suggestion of Drop In Centres, I would really like to speak to them! I won’t hold my breath….
