Over 400 of us answered Redrow’s call to come and comment on their housing plans for Sefton Park Meadows on Tues 16th Sept.
Only problem? There were no detailed plans to comment on! We were shown 5 boards with information on such as Liverpool’s planning documents, the benefits of housing in the Mossley Hill area, a basic ( to say the least) aerial view of the Meadows with 30+ small blue boxes aligned on it, (representing 55 units, including apartments) and a few random housing styles that may be included – or not. See the boards here on the Redrow online consultation website.
MISSING were any detailed designs of:
- what the development would realistically look like
- access in and out, including to approx 40 individual driveways
- concrete assurances on the threat to the magnificent trees ( ‘ trees will be retained, where possible’, and when we probed the Redrow director on this, he admitted that trees would be ‘sold’ with the houses to each individual owner)
- views in and across the park with the new houses
- traffic management
You have 6 days UNTIL TUES 23RD SEPT to give your comments to Redrow. EITHER online using the above link. Or EMAIL to email@example.com . Or by post to Redrow Homes at Park Avenue, ℅ Lexington Communications, First Floor, The Zenith Building, 26 Spring Gardens, Manchester, M2 1AB
Our SINGLE COMMENT using the ‘Added Comments’ section if using the online form, email, or in your letter, is
NO TO REDROW, NO TO HOUSING...
We can’t comment on plans that are not available… We won’t participate in a tick box exercise… we won’t support any housing on Sefton Park Meadows…
THANKS TO THE HUGE NUMBERS OF LOCAL PEOPLE WHO CAME TO TELL REDROW THEIR VIEWS. Special thanks to Liverpool Taxi Drivers Alliance and Socialist Singers.
MAYOR ANDERSON WAS NOT SPOTTED.
