I doubt it, the houses have their own 2m high fence much nearer to their own property than the fire station one iirc

I make the building to be about 35m away at its closest point, I don't think that would be called obstruction of natural daylight even if it was a four storey building?

If the council were playing straight, they should put a covenant on the land to restrict its future use, this would protect the greenbelt principal whilst permitting the fire station. I would also hope there is a restoration clause in the contract should the fire service leave the site. I'm not part...

Re: Why are the Conservatives opposing Wirral Council’s monthly Wirral View newspaper but not as vocal about Merseyside

I don't think the 6th edition (Mar 2017) of Wirral View got published?

Are some of the claimed "advertisers" subsidiaries of Wirral Council (eg Invigor8) to produce an accounting fiddle?

Re: Why did Wirral Council councillors vote for a just over 4.5% council tax rise?

Thanks very much John, its about time that someone (courts?) declared PFI contracts as unfair, they always were a political bodge to delay today's problems until tomorrow, they aren't any good for the public purse, they aren't that good for the end users and despite some potentially big profits they...

Re: Why did Wirral Council councillors vote for a just over 4.5% council tax rise?

The police bill to council tax has gone up by 18.6%, its only some weird manipulation that makes it look like its under 2%. To be fair to the police, their spending has actually gone down by 1.3% but, to be less fair, this is far from the massive cuts they keep on saying they are enduring. The counc...

Re: Why did Wirral Council councillors vote for a just over 4.5% council tax rise?

But don't forget the adult social care element has gone up from 2% to 3% rise. Trying to understand some of the figures eg the police council tax requirement has gone up by 18.6% but with the trickery of the system its only gone up by 1.95% for a Wirral band D, this seems somewhat misleading. I also...

Re: Why did a councillor refer to NHS Plan for cuts as a “PR disaster”?

Changes have already been made for the worse. I know someone that has to have a blood test once a week, it used to be done by appointment, now it is going to be a hit and miss affair of going to a drop in centre and hoping you get dealt with within the next few hours. Considering the person is disab...
