I sent the email below earlier this week to David Armstrong at Wirral Council. David is the Deputy Chief Excecutive and heads up the Councils Asset Management Department. As yet I am waiting for a response
According to Ms Henshaw at the Fire Authority, the land next to the Birkenhead Fire Station valued at £250,000 is being transferred to WBC for the nominal price of £1.00. ( I understand this is not finalised yet). For an Authority that is constantly whinging about cuts to its service there clearly is an underlying motive to turn down £250,000 to please another authority.
I am really concerned that this deal will influence the Council when MFRS request the Council to transfer green belt land (as yet not valued) in Saughall Massie for its new fire station.
I would appreciate your views on this
