Planning Committee (Wirral Council) 26th September 2013 APP/13/00676: Ring O Bells Hotel, Village Road, West Kirby, CH48 7HE – New external children’s play equipment

                           

Continues from Planning Committee (Wirral Council) 26th September 2013 OUT/13/00551: Unused Land, Valley Road, Bidston – Outline application for the construction of indoor skate park with associated facilities including offices, cafe, flexible learning spaces, business support for young entrepreneurs and car parking. The video footage for this item starts here and continues here.

The Chair asked an officer to introduce this item. A Wirral Council officer said it was a proposal for play equipment at the Ring O’Bells pub in the West Kirby Conservation Area. The officer’s view was that the introduction of play equipment didn’t impact negatively on the Conservation Area. In their view there would be no increase in noise or disturbance.

Cllr Geoffrey Watt, ward councillor for West Kirby and Thurstaston ward relayed to the Planning Committee the serious concerns of the nearest residents about the proposal. In his view the concerns raised were not planning reasons but licensing reasons. He referred to an action in the Magistrate’s Court, over ten years ago that had found in favour of the objectors. Since then some residents had watched with apprehension at any extended use. The resident’s concerns were about noise and a bouncy castle that had been there at the Bank Holiday weekend.

Cllr David Elderton said he went there for the odd lunch, but felt that the residents concerns about what would result were overstated and wouldn’t happen as a result of children’s play equipment. He said he would support the application.

Cllr Denise Realey pointed out the large distances between the Ring O Bells and the nearest resident. Cllr David Elderton asked about the boundary treatment. The officer said there would be two metre high fencing.

Cllr Denise Realey proposed approval of the application, seconded by Cllr Joe Walsh. All councillors voted in favour of the application.

Continues at Planning Committee (Wirral Council) 26th September 2013 APP/13/00827: Mapleholme, 101 Beckwith Street, Birkenhead, CH41 3JP – Demolition of the two existing vacant buildings on the site and the development of 16 two-bedroom 2 storey houses and 2 two-bedroom bungalows with associated private garden space and car parking (18 Dwellings in total – amended description).
