“Wirral residents are – rightly – fiercely proud of their local environment. Residents enjoy our coastline, countryside and perfect blend of the urban and rural.
One of our key 2020 pledges is to encourage residents to take pride in their local community and increase personal responsibility, to keep Wirral ‘clean and green’. As part of the Wirral Plan, our ambition is to work with residents to help them ensure an attractive local environment for them and for their children.”
Councillor Bernie Mooney
Reason for Decision:
The Loving Our Environment Strategy has been developed to deliver the Wirral Plan pledge to ‘create an attractive local environment for Wirral residents.’
That the Loving Our Environment Strategy as appended to the report, be approved.
Councillor Bernie Mooney spoke to the report which provided Cabinet with information on the Loving Our Environment strategy; a key strategic document which articulated ambitions related to the Wirral Plan Environment Priority.
Cabinet noted that the report was consistent with the principles of the Wirral Plan: A 2020 Vision which was developed following full consultation with partner organisations and residents. The Loving Our Environment Strategy had also been informed by the results of the Wirral Residents’ Survey of 2015 and through consultation with a number of partners and agencies.
The matter affected all wards within the Borough and was therefore a key decision.
