A couple of weeks ago I asked the Leader of the Council to treat the people of Saughall Massie as fairly as he treated the people of Greasby with regard to the proposal to build a fire station on Green Belt land in Saughall Massie. We all know that when the people of Greasby objected to a fire station being built in their community the Leader of the Council instructed Council Officers to withdraw the land.
So I don’t believe it’s unreasonable for him to do the same for the 3,000 plus people of Saughall Massie who have already objected to the application in their community. However in his email response to me he has said he won’t withdraw the land and wants the planning process to run its course.
Strangely I would have thought it incumbent on any Council leader, of any political persuasion to act in a consistent manner and treat all residents of the Borough with fairness and equality. Sadly in Wirral under this Labour administration this is not the case. I wonder why?
