Wirral Council Councillors asked to approve increase to 800 new homes a year as part of new Local Plan consultation
Papers published today (3rd January 2019) on Wirral Council’s website, show their plans for a pair of public meetings on Monday 13th January 2019 for councillors to approve the next stage of public consultation on the Local Plan.
Wirral Council have previously been threatened with national government intervention and the process being taken out of their hands if Wirral Council continues with delay.
However what are the key points?
Well the number of new homes to be built a year over the 15 years of the Local Plan is recommended to go back up to 800 a year (or 12,000 over the lifetime of the Local Plan).
Following legal advice (presumably from Christopher Katkowski QC) a number of options (albeit not the preferred option) that include releasing green belt have been included.
Details of the meetings at which this next stage of the Local Plan process will be discussed are below. Cabinet refers to the ruling ten Labour councillors, whereas Council is all 66 councillors:-
Cabinet (Committee Room 1 – Wallasey Town Hall) 13th January 2019 starting at 1.00 pm.
Council (Council Chamber – Wallasey Town Hall) 13th January 2019 starting at 6.00 pm.
