Residents living near the former brickworks on Carr Lane, Moreton, have contacted the Council following an increase in noise and dust from the site.
The increase in pollution coincides with talks taking place between the owners of the site and the Town Hall over its future use.
There has been an increase in activity at the site recently but there has been no explanation offered to residents. I have asked the Council’s Environmental Health and Planning Officers to meet with residents and to check whether existing regulations are being followed before we start to look at further uses for the site.
Located in the Green Belt between Moreton and Meols, the site was used many years ago to extract clay for making bricks. Since then, new homes have been built nearby, between Millhouse Lane and Carr Lane.
Local resident Alan Moore said: “We’ve all noticed an increase in activity on site – noise from heavy equipment and dust on cars, windows! Garden furniture etc. We’re asking the Council to work with us to find out what’s going on and to tackle these issues.”
