Earlier today Wirrals Planning Officer contacted me to tell me the Planning Inspectorate has been in touch to inform Wirral Council that the appeal was now due to start. The applicant has asked that the appeal be carried out by an exchange of documentation, however I have requested that the appeal be a public hearing and we will know the outcome of that request sometime after next Monday.
Hopefully the inspectorate will recognise the importance of this planning application and allow the hundreds of local people who oppose this development to have their say in person rather than just writing.

Readers of the blog and the wider Moreton Community will be aware that last year Wirral’s Planners refused permission for a Telephone Mast on Town Meadow Lane, near to Linear Park. Vodafone and O2 the operators were not happy with that decision and lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate.
Local residents supported by me, Steve and Simon set about submitting a petition, lodging letters of objection and making the inspector aware that it would be wrong to overturn Wirral Planners decision.
I am therefore delighted that I have been notified that the Planning Inspector has dismissed the appeal and told Vodafone and O2 that a mast at this location was inappropriate. You can read the Insectors report by clicking HERE.
Seems with Saughall Massie Road refusal, and now Town Meadow Lane, that its not a good day for Vodafone or O2. I have just learned that they have now submitted an application for Holt Avenue. Lets hope we eventually get a hat trick of refusals!
Readers of the blog, and the wider Moreton community will be aware that the Royal Taste takeaway in Pasture Road, has applied on four occasions to Wirral’s Planning Department for longer hours, each time local residents and the police have objected, and each time the planning committee has said no. After the last refusal the Royal Taste appealed to the Planning Inspectorate. I am delighted to tell you that I have been notified today that the appeal has been dismissed. I am beginning to wonder what part of NO the Royal Taste does not understand!
