Readers of the blog and the wider Moreton community will be aware that the original licensing application made by the Crossbar on Upton Road was refused at the end of July.         Following that refusal a second application was made.    The second application will be considered by Wirral’s Licensing Panel at Wallasey Town Hall on Thursday 30th September commencing at 9:30am.   The meeting is open to the public, so if you have made representations, have concerns about the application, or simply want to see how the system works this is your chance.


Wirral’s Future – Make Sure YOU’RE Part of IT!

Wirral’s biggest ever consultation exercise starts on Monday 13 September.   The consultation will run for 6 weeks and will include roadshows, events and will also be promoted through facebook, other websites and newsletters.   Posters have been sent to around 800 locations including, off licences, chip shops, newsagents, doctors, dentists etc.    All the One Stop Shops LCD screens will be advertising the consultation, and the Council is working with Merseytravel to sort out arrangements with train stations and ferries to have questionnaires available there.  Other agencies, such as Reach out and the Fire Service are also giving out questionnaires for the Council.   Wirral Partnership Homes, Wirral Change, VCAW and Older Peoples Parliament are also sending out questionnaires on behalf of the Council.    If you want to see where the consultation teams are going to be for the next two weeks click HERE

News in Brief!

Its been a busy week hence the lack of posts since Monday, anyway below a few headlines on issues this week:

  • On Thursday local residents got together and spent £28,500 to buy  the woodland (Upton Woods) that backs onto the playing fields by the Overton Community Centre.   A great example of community coming together in a common cause.   Well done Jean and all the residents who made a donation to enable this to happen
  • This week saw the Action Teams out and about on the knocker calling on homes in Liscard, New Brighton and Moreton.   Watch out for us in your neighbourhood.
