Tesco at the Plough – Recommended for Approval!

Readers of the blog and the wider Moreton community will be aware that Tesco’s have applied for permission to demolish the Plough Public House and build a Tesco Express on the site.     I have just seen the report that Wirral’s Planning Officers have produced their recommendation to approve the application.   You can read that report by clicking HERE

Last Friday I attended a meeting of local businesses and residents.   It was clear that all those at that meeting opposed the application.   Read more on that here.    You can also read what the wirral Globe has to say by clicking here.

  1. From the report:
    The Local Planning Department cannot assess if an application will result in loss of business.

    So, basically, who in the Council can assess if an application will result in loss of business – or does nobody give a toss? In my naivety, i would have thought that’s precisely what the Planning Department would be able to assess and be responsible for.

  2. I’m sure it applies to all Councils and not just Wirral but isn’t it along the same lines as not being able to take the potential detrimental effect on local house prices into account when assessing an application (not necessarily this one)?

    Both of those things just seem like nice “get out clauses” for two of the very things we’d really like to be able to rely on our Council to look out for on our behalf!
