Here's a laugh, cheeky bastards!! after the big f off to the trams they want to put their oar here!! They should be Liverpool West region with councillors sitting on the Liverpool council, then perhaps I would take them a bit more seriously. Its clearly a case of the local councillor saying to his voters 'I do look after your interests'

I think this is a bigger issue than just wind turbines. It's been going on for years. I think Wirral need to decide whether they want to be associated with Liverpool or not. This mentality of we'll take the good stuff when it's going but as soon as things turn bad and/or money is wanted we'll run back to our CH postcodes really isn't good. Southport used to be just as guilty of this, but in recent years seem to have decided that accepting and promoting Liverpool as one of their neighbours can work for them. About time the Wirral did the same.

Bloody hell, i didn't read this when i saw it because i thought it was about the off-shore turbines to go on the Dee side of the Wirral, Cheeky sods, i want these to go ahead, as they are renewable energy, and are located in the industrial Dock's.

Right, close the tunnels now, they can all use the Runcorn Bridge, and implement a toll charge there, to be paid by all Wirral residents, to help pay for our Trams. That'll teach em

The Wirral must be one of the most regressive parts of the country. Not only are they stalling to develop their water front- despite superb plans to improve what is currently a bit of a dump- but they seem to be opposed to any progressive, sustainable development in Liverpool.

That's what you get for having wannabe Tories as neighbours

Ref:

Silent majority petition to keep seafront project alive

Nov 10 2005

By Kirsti Adair Daily Post Staff

An artist's impression of the proposed New Brighton scheme


SUPPORTERS of a controversial £70m scheme to regenerate New Brighton are to launch their own petition in a bid to keep the project alive.

Members of the New Brighton community partnership say a 'silent majority' of people living in the area want the transformation of the sea-front to go ahead.

Developers Neptune have backed the petition which they say will add weight to their case.

The leisure-led development has been contested by the New Brighton Heritage Group who say the changes will be 'out of character' with the area..

They have already secured 19,000 signatures for their petition.

Plans include a new Morrisons supermarket to be built on the site of New Brighton's marine lake, a replacement lake, a lido, restaurants, cinema, new pier and apartments.

Residents are now drumming up support for a petition of support to be in place before the public inquiry early next year.

Rusty Keane, chairman of the community partnership, said: "We carried out our own survey and found the majority of people want these changes and investment to take place in New Brighton. But these people are not being heard.

"I have lived here since 1949 and watched improvement schemes blocked time and time again.

"There is a large petition against, which has been growing over two years. The question being asked at visitor centres is whether people want the lake to be replaced by a super-market.

"We are thinking of the jobs that will be created as a result of the scheme. We do not have a lot of time to get signatures together but feel we have to try.

"We will be focusing on what funding we could lose if the development doesn't move forward quickly - which includes money for the Floral Pavillion."

New Brighton Cllr Tony Pritchard said it may be too late to make any impact with a petition.

He said: "The heritage group have had a long time to get signatures and it will be difficult to make a difference on the other side in the space of a couple of months. It is a little late in the day."

The regeneration scheme was referred to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in September after it divided the community.

But a spokesman for Neptune said: "We feel that the petition has added weight to the other side and we need to show what support there is for the scheme ahead of the public enquiry."

Supporters feared the whole project could be jeopardised if a delay resulted in it losing out on £13m of public money as the work would not be finished in time.

However, Wallasey MP Angela Eagle won a commitment from the planning inspectorate that the inquiry into the Neptune planning application will open early in the New Year.

If the go-ahead decision for the project is made by early 2006, work could start next year to allow it to qualify for grants which have to be used by December 31, 2008.

These include £6.5m in Objective 1 funding and a further £6.5m from Mersey Waterfront Regional Park.

New Brighton Masterplan











Background
Neptune Developments Limited was formed in 1989 and is a privately owned commercial property development company with considerable experience in regeneration and traditional development projects working in partnership with local authorities and the community.

Neptune have specialised in large-area based regeneration schemes and developments undertaken to-date demonstrate our experience in dealing with complex and challenging projects and returning derelict sites and buildings into a viable and sustainable economic use.

Preferred Developer
Through an Agreement with Wirral Borough Council, Neptune Developments are Preferred Developer on approximately 48 acres of land to the New Brighton seafront. The proposals focus upon the Marine Lake and continue to the ‘Tower Grounds’ to the East and the start of ‘The Dips’ to the West.

Many of the ‘public’ facilities within the scheme are wholly dependent upon the commercial elements (food retail and leisure) which will sudsidise their construction. In addition, the food store ensures all year round visitors to New Brighton seafront, which is vital in securing such national operators, as proposed for the leisure elements of the scheme.

The intention is to create a vibrant and sustainable scheme to be used throughout the year that will make New Brighton a more attractive and prosperous place to live and visit. The scheme proposes:

A multi-use outdoor lido / amphi-theatre
A new pier
Refurbishment and extension to the Floral Pavilion with new conference / exhibition space
Family restaurants / bars
A restaurant quarter
Residential apartments
A ‘miniplex’ cinema (approximately 6 screens)
A casino
A health and fitness centre
A bingo hall
Food superstore
A relocation of the Marine Lake with purpose-built users facilities
Upgrade and relocation of the model boating lake
A new purpose built children’s play area
Extensive public realm works to include seating, landscaping, WC facilities, tourist information points etc.
Flood alleviation works to the promenade

Excellent Maggie,New Brighton wont be as bad as I thought and it definitely needs the investment so I'm hoping this development goes ahead now,the outdoor pool will be brilliant for the kids in Summer and will become an ice rink in Winter so I'm warming to the idea.

Is that a landing stage on the masterplan - the long crisscrossed part extending out from "Town Square"?

THE Open Championship is now officially the biggest event ever held in Wirral with sold out signs up in hotels across the peninsula.

Demand from visitors is so great that some spectators are now booking accommodation as far away as Manchester and even Birmingham.

As the golf fever heats up, many hotels in the borough say they have no space and callers to the dedicated accommodation line set up are being directed to Liverpool and St Helens in the first place, or to camp sites.

Emma Degg, head of tourism and marketing for Wirral Council, said it was the biggest event to have been held in Wirral and the region could expect a bonanza of visitors.

Story continues

She said: "Wirral is pretty much full, Chester is pretty much full, and we're working to maximise any additional opportunity, including camping. We have had hundreds of inquiries about that."


Ms Degg said they were aware of visitors staying across the North West, including Manchester and some even in Birmingham.


But she said: "Even if people are not staying in Wirral we want to make sure they spend as much time here eating and drinking as we can."


Some of the most exclusive hotels in Wirral have been turning guests away, including Thornton Hall Hotel whose general manager Geoff Dale said they had been booked up totally back in 2002 for the whole week of the tournament.


He said: "The Royal and Ancient booked us just before they made the announcement about the venue, although we're not sure who will be staying. We'll find out nearer the time."

A CONTROVERSIAL £75m regeneration scheme for a Wirral resort will be taken "up-market" by the creation of residential apartments, according to a property specialist.

At the public inquiry into the Neptune scheme to redevelop New Brighton, Peter Mowbray, of Mowbray Gill, told the inquiry the intention was to create a "whole day experience" and a supermarket was key to bringing people to the area.

In his evidence he also said the developers were aiming for "international branded restaurants, in preference to the 'fast food' brands which tend to prefer drive-thru restaurants".

Mr Mowbray added: "The inclusion of residential elements will also help attract the restaurant and coffee bar users, and also helps take the whole scheme up-market".

The design of the ambitious plans to regenerate the former "playground of the North" had been revised after criticism about the appearance of some of the buildings prior to the project being given planning permission by Wirral Council last year.


Liverpool-based Neptune Developments caused controversy with plans to fill in the marine lake and build a supermarket and petrol station with a four-storey apartment block overlooking the sea.


The scheme also includes a new outdoor swimming pool, which could be an ice rink in winter, as well as a revamp of the Floral Pavilion theatre, a new marine lake, and leisure attractions, including a miniplex cinema and health and fitness centre, restaurants and cafe bars.
