We’ll forego any further post mortem of the body politic after this week’s local election and turn our attention to the more obscure news items that you’ve been sending to us this past week.
We understand the the long running New Brighton lifeboat station saga continues.We’re particularly interested in the involvement of Cllr Tony Jones but those who want to follow the latest developments :
PETER’S POTHOLE PLEA
I am not a active “political” person but as a keen cyclist the state of our roads is of close and personal interest since their rapid deterioration presents a serious hazard each and every time I use my bike. I routinely risk being thrown from my bike and being mown down by the always impatient motorists, van and lorry drivers.
I have tried and failed to find any information on the Wirral council website as to numbers / locations of reported pot holes and their plan for rectification in the borough during 2018.
I did read somewhere that a plan was supposed to be published by end of April 2018.
I see no action being taken and only things getting worse which inevitably will mean higher eventual repair costs
Can you give me any advice was to how to find out or who to contact to find out what the council is doing?
I was especially annoyed when reading my council tax demand that Our Dear Leader Phil specifically claims he will be repairing our roads with the money raised but there appears to be zero action taken.
Look forward to any advice and will share information if I learn anything useful.
We understand that Labour Cllr Stuart Whittingham is the Cabinet member responsible for this area of work . However if anybody has any further assistance/advice on the pothole problem we’ll pass on to Peter.
Still no news on the outcome of the Morton v Information Commissioner ‘s Office and Wirral Borough Council case . We also understand that our other main Wirral institution is also keeping under wraps a matter that will soon come before Liverpool Crown Court. We’ll keep you posted………
