Wirral’s Planning Department Another Error!!!

It was not my intention to blog until the New Year, BUT!     I was alerted to a newly validated application on the Councils Planning Website.      Its the application to extend the amount of time to extract clay from the old Barker Briscoe Brickwork site in Carr Lane, Moreton.

Although the application was only dated the 19th December, no one can comment as its closed, it is dated to go to committee on 3rd Jan, although the consultation period is still open (or is it) and no case officer is identified, and the first date for decision is 19 days before it appeared on the website!!    This is clearly incorrect and in my opinion indicative of the continuing errors that just keep on happening.    

I have received an apology from the Council, however if they can’t get an application right at submission, what confidence can I or members of the public have in them to get it right at all?      I have asked the Councils Chief Executive Jim Wilkie to ‘Get a grip’ and stop these errors……

I have appended the website entry below:
