Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign to save the Green Belt and fight the plan for a Fire Station at Saughall Massie, and to those who attended the planning committee meeting on the 10th November.
You may be aware that at that meeting the Planning Committee Members deferred the decision in order to visit the site and see it for themselves. This will take place on Tuesday 13th December at 11:10am and the public can attend. I, along with Cllr Bruce Berry and Cllr Williams will be at the site from 10:50am if anyone has any questions.
So on Thursday 15th December the Planning Committee will meet at Wallasey Town Hall at 6pm to make its final decision on whether to approve or refuse the application for a new Fire Station on our green belt. The meeting is open to the public and given the public interest the meeting will be held in the much larger Civic Hall at the Town Hall.
The decision whether to approve or refuse this plan will be taken by the 13 Councillors from all four political parties in Wirral who make up the Planning Committee. The Committee is chaired by a Labour Councillor from Leasowe.
At the last planning committee meeting on the 10th November around 150 objectors attended and their presence and opposition was clearly noted by the elected members. So for both the site visit on the 13th, and particularly the planning committee meeting on the 15th we need as many people as possible to attend.
Me, Bruce and Steve will be at the meeting and a huge turnout of residents will help to send a very clear message to the Council. That message is simply “Hands off Our Green Belt”
This is our FINAL opportunity to have this application thrown out, so please don’t leave it to others to attend, after all they may be leaving it to you
