It’s been a long hot summer. We have been working hard, mainly behind the scenes, to continue to persuade Joe Anderson and Liverpool City Council to withdraw Sefton Park Meadows from being sold off for housing. They advertised the Loss of Open Space and we responded by gathering over 1,300 objections – following on from the 7,500 petitions we had already put in. We also had a meeting with senior officers and Cllr Malcolm Kennedy in July. They admitted this was the highest number of objections they had received for a land sale, and that our campaign had made this issue very high profile.
All for nothing! Their report was published 2 weeks ago as a response to the massive number of objections and, no surprise, they have taken no notice!
ALL THE MAYOR AND THE COUNCIL OFFICERS HAVE DONE IS TO GO THROUGH THE FORMAL MOTIONS. They have not considered this site’s special status – or taken account of the wishes of the thousands of Liverpool people who have asked for Sefton Park Meadows to be saved. You can find their report here
BUT WE ARE NOT GIVING UP – and have started working on a new plan of action to challenge any planning application for housing. Read our Meadows Autumn News. WE NEED MORE HELP!
