It seems that companies who submit planning applications are not even bothering to wait for Wirral to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the application they just carry on regardless of planning laws.
The latest applicant to do this is the agent acting for Greggs the Bakers, who have applied for a new shop front on Hoylake Road (where the former Barometer clothes shop was). The earliest the application could be determined is the 2nd December, thats if its done under delegated authority. However the work to the shop front looks to be almost complete.
I have now removed the application from delegated authority in order that the planning committee will ultimately make the decision, I have also asked the planning officer to find out why the applicant has behaved in such an unacceptable manner?
