Say NO to the Fire Station!

Say NO To Fire Station

I am writing this post to keep residents up to date with the proposal made by Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service (MFRS) to build a new fire station on greenbelt land on Saughall Massie Road, adjacent to Woodpecker Close. It’s been great to have so much support from residents for our campaign.

The 12 week ‘consultation’ process carried out by MFRS has now finished. This included the meeting at St Mary’s Church Centre, when more than 200 people were locked out.

The Chief Fire Officer will now submit his recommendation to a meeting of those councillors who sit on the Fire Authority. These councillors are from across Merseyside but do not include any from our community.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 30 June, and, while this meeting is open to the public, it is being held in Bootle. We asked for the meeting to be held in Wirral, but again, this was refused.

While I recognise the difficulties, I would encourage as many residents as possible to attend the Fire Authority meeting on Tuesday 30th June.   The meeting will be held at Merseyside Fire and Rescue Headquarters, Bridle Road, Bootle, Merseyside L30 4YD  commencing at 1pm.

Your three local councillors – Steve Williams, Bruce Berry and myself – will attend, as will representatives of the Saughall Massie Village Area Conservation Society.
