Avon Buses Limited (based on the Wirral) ceased trading on the 5th October 2018. This led to the bus routes and school routes that Avon Buses provided ending.

On the 15th October 2018, Cllr Chris Blakeley asked Cllr Ron Abbey (Lead Member for Bus) a question about Merseytravel’s response to this at a public meeting of Wirral Council’s councillors. You can watch the question and answer in the video clip below this paragraph.

Who are the 4 candidates in the Upton byelection of a councillor to Wirral Council?

                                          

I’ll declare an interest in relation to this piece. My father who lives in Upton nominated one of the four candidates. I am also an election observer.


Wirral Council has published the list of candidates for the Upton byelection. The election is a byelection due to the resignation of Matthew Patrick. Whoever is elected will therefore only serve the rest of his term of office (to May 2020).

There are four candidates who are listed below alphabetically by surname. I have included their address too (this should also end up being on the ballot paper).


1. CLOUGH (Lily) 26 Rake Lane, Upton Village, Wirral, CH49 0US (Green Party)

2. DAVIES (Alan) 4 Broadheath Avenue, Bidston, CH43 7NP (Liberal Democrat)

3. ROBINSON (Jean Mary) 65 Gainsborough Road, Upton, CH49 4NE (Labour Party)

4. SELLMAN (Emma Louise) 136B Manor Drive, Upton, CH49 4PJ (Conservative Party)

This continues from yesterday’s report on Chalmers v Wirral Borough Council which was headlined DJ Hennessy refers to “traffic chaos” and criticises Wirral Council for not complying with a court order and covers what happened after the short adjournment.

Mr Bayatti said that he hadn’t delivered the application to Mrs Chalmers on the day he had delivered copies of the application to the Birkenhead County Court.

This continues from an earlier story about the adjourned hearing on the 5th October 2018.

Today was a hearing in the two linked cases (E14YJ013 & E24YJ652) brought by Ms Chalmers against Wirral Borough Council.

The hearing was scheduled for 10.00 am but I was told when I arrived (having walked about a mile and a half there which was faster than the buses and traffic were going) that the hearing was likely to start late due to the gridlocked traffic. Many people were ringing the Birkenhead County Court stating they would be late.

Attending today for the Defendant Wirral Council was Mr Bayatti (a solicitor working for Wirral Council) and two other Wirral Council employees who although present for the hearing did not speak during the hearing.
