This posting is brief summary of some of the issues that have come about while I have been out of circulation:
- The saddest piece of news I heard while I was in my sick bed was the announcement by Burtons to close down the Moreton Biscuit making operation and chocolate production with the loss of some 342 jobs. Absolutely devastating and as a Moreton Councillor I will do all I can, however small to support the workforce.
- A planning application was submitted for a Telephone Mast in Saughall Massie, the planners say it is in Hoylake and Meols Ward, so we only found out by accident. Anyway me, Steve and Simon lodged our objections and I am delighted that the planning officers have refused the application.
- Whilst I am on about telephone masts, we, that is me Simon and Steve have received pre-application consultation from MONO CONSULTANTS acting on behalf of Telefonica. It seems they want to submit a planning application for a 17.5 metre mast, Cabinet and ancillary erquipment in Holt Avenue, close to its junction with Hoylake Road. We have made it clear to them in our response that this is not an apprpriate location and to look elsewhere. If and when a planning application is submitted we will let people know.
- My colleague Steve Williams has also been dealing with more Fly Tipping issues. You can read more on that by clicking here
I will post separately on the Skipton Building Society official opening and the matter regading Merseytravel’s Tunnel Tolls report, so look out for them.
