Say NO to the Fire Station in Saughall Massie Petition opposing Planning Application 17/00306
On the 15th December Wirral's Planning Committee refused the planning application made by Merseyside Fire Authority to build a fire station on green belt land in Saughall Massie.
At a Fire Authority meeting this afternoon residents who opposed the original planning application were disgracefully referred to by a Labour Councillor as being 'Snobs' and only being worried about their house values.
After finishing insulting people, the Fire Authority agreed to submit another planning application to Wirral Council and also to consider submitting an appeal against the first refusal to the Planning Inspectorate and our prepared to spend up to a further £106,000 to achieve approval
Over 3,600 people opposed the first application and if we are to be successful in stopping this application its important that you sign this petition.
Why is this important?
We need to protect our green belt against this unwarranted and unnecessary development, as well as protecting the amenity of residents who live close by, particularly those elderly and infirm residents who live in the sheltered accommodation in Woodpecker Close and Saughall Massie Road.
If this development is allowed it will set a precedent that says building on the green belt in Wirral is ok. We must not allow that to happen
How it will be delivered
