Planning Committee agenda

chinese chef site planI have just received the agenda for the Planning Committee meeting 18:30 13th August at Bootle Town Hall. There is nothing in Victoria Ward or Crosby area.

I was expecting the application for a development on Musker Street at the former asian food plant  but this will now be heard at the meeting at Southport Town Hall on September 17th 18:30.


Musker Street, planning application, 29 houses

20140324_125351Yet another major planning application in Victoria Ward. The former Asian food packaging plant on Musker Street L23 0UB. DC/2014/01124. This is for 29 new dwellings with access via the new Bellway/ Hawthorn Estate and the Northern Road. The plan includes a shared surface scheme which is contrary to the unanimously resolved views of the members of Sefton Council. If the scheme were to be approved then I will be asking that a conventional 60mm raised paving scheme is included on at least one side of the street to enable safe access Children, blind, disabled people with special needs and older people. The photo shows a typically failed shared surface scheme in the adjacent Bellway site.

Kershaw Avenue – dispute over boundary wall

Residents in Kershaw Avenue off Enbutt Lane have notified me that they have heard that the developer of the new Hawthorne estate off The Northern Road is intending to change the agreed design of the Boundary Fence.

An extract from the original Architect’s plan is below.

I understand that the developer would have to submit an planning application to amend the design. I spoke to Planning Officers and Planning Monitoring Officers have visited today. I await a response and will post here.

Original application from Oct 2011. s/2011/1338 . Outline permission granted in 2005 S/2005/0688


Brompton Ave, Church Hall. Application Deferred

After visiting the site, hearing briefs from officers and at the meeting, hearing oral submissions from the petitioners and the applicant,  the  Planning Committee decided to defer the application DC/2014/0087. Two of the Gardens described in the application contravene the minimum size allowed in the regulations and therefore reduced amenity. A number of other issues troubled members. Officers will have discussions with the developer.

Councillor and officers are aware that there is both opposition and support among local residents.
