A couple of messages from campaign groups in West Kirby (home of Wirral Council leader Cllr Phil Davies and his personal spin doctor Martin Liptrot) which we think warrant your attention :
HAPPY NEW YEAR from the For Trees team!
ASHTON COURT – UPDATE. 11 January 2019.
THE LAST DATE THAT WIRRAL METROPOLITAN BOROUGH COUNCIL’S PLANNING DEPARTMENT WILL ACCEPT OBJECTIONS TO THE APP/18/01625 PLANNING APPLICATION IS TUESDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2019.
To object…..google: Wirral.planning applications. Select ‘simple search’. Enter ‘Ashton Court. APP/18/01625’…….and present your objections.
The twenty two, unoccupied and neglected, retirement flats at Ashton Court, Banks Road, West Kirby, should be refurbished and modernised. They should be kept as social, rented housing.
Planning application – APP/18/01625 proposes the demolition of the existing 22 retirement flats and the privatisation of Ashton Court, with the building of 14 houses, to be sold, privately.
Ashton Court is not a Brown Field Site, since it does not qualify as such under the National Planning Policy Framework (see the N.P.P.F. Glossary, Annex 2 – ‘Previously Developed Land’).
PLEASE object to the APP/18/01625 Planning application.
Write to: David Ball, Assistant Director ‘Major Growth Projects and Housing Delivery, Economic and Housing Growth Directorate’, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council, P.O. Box 290, Brighton Street, Wallasey, Wirral, CH27 9FQ.
Please invite your friends and neighbours to sign petitions objecting to the APP/18/01625 planning application. Thank you.
‘Magenta Living’ has created three companies to privatise some of the 13,000 social homes that it owns. The companies are: ‘Hilbre Homes’, ‘Starfish Commercial’ and ‘Bamboo Lettings’.
‘Magenta Living’ currently has 192 unoccupied properties. ‘Magenta Living’ is responsible for the neglect of the twenty two unoccupied homes at Ashton Court.
Since 2011 most of the twenty two Ashton Court homes have been wholly unoccupied and totally neglected by ‘Magenta Living’. The private gardens, in front of the Ashton Court homes have, for the last fifty years, provided a much appreciated green space, for local residents, half way along Banks Road.
Policy GRE1 of the Local Development Plan calls for Urban Green Spaces, including private gardens, like those at Ashton Court, to be protected. The Ashton Court gardens should be protected from building schemes since they are areas of visual importance to local residents and to visitors to West Kirby.
Many West Kirby residents object to Planning Application APP/18/01625 which seeks the DEMOLITION of twenty two flats at Ashton Court, Banks Road, West Kirby and the building of 14 houses (13 X 3-storey houses and 1 X 2-storey house). They are opposed to the ‘Magenta Living’ plan for the demolition of the existing homes at Ashton Court.
‘Magenta Living’ should refurbish and modernise the existing homes rather than destroy highly-valued urban green space at Ashton Court by building 14 tightly-packed, private houses. West Kirby’s remaining urban green spaces should be protected for the benefit of present and future generations.

Save our green space
They must be selling the Wood for ppls Log Burners. No other reason. This has never happened before . They just wouldn’t spend money on it. I can tell you that as an ex Wirral Citizen I am appalled at what they have done to The Trees in tge Wirral , every time I visit . S Richards.

Save our Green Space……can we ask for help off Professor Greg?
Why would he be able to help you numpty he’s a retired statistician and has no authority
I would appreciate it if you could darken the green text asap because it is difficult to read?
Is there a wrong shade of green?
James, Happy New Year.
I have been communicating with my relatives – and looking into the future – I am told that this year will be the Year of the Apology.
I think it means Philly L. is going to do right thing (just before he goes) and APOLOGISE to you and the Mighty H. Yes, mark my words James. I think we are going to have a Shakespearean year. (‘Where strange things happen’)
Hope you don’t think I am ‘going round the twist’) Ouu do you get my Australian Children’s TV refererence..
Fair Dinkum “Inty”
You suggesting “Philly “FUCKING” Liar” might apologise properly?
Talk to your analyst some might suggest that you are more round the twist than the great Aussie
Round the Twist
Itwould suggest that “Philly “FUCKING” Liar” has a modicum of decency.
The man is just a compulsive liar and you can see in his bloodshot eyes and pink cheeks he thrives on being an arsehole.
If he don’t may all his lies fester up and eaty him.
Luv yer La hope your feeling better soon. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
