Sale of land at Cross Lane, Wallasey
Item withdrawn (see minute 54 above).
David Armstrong, Assistant Chief Executive, presented the report of the Director of Regeneration and Place which sought approval for a recommendation to be made to Policy and Resources Committee for the disposal of land at Cross Lane, Wallasey to enable West Wallasey Van Hire to meet its expansion needs and to generate a capital receipt.
Members questioned the proposal and expressed concerns at the use of the land, the increased traffic and the loss of green space and flood plain in the locality.
Councillor Andrew Hodson proposed that the land not be sold at this time.
This was seconded by Councillor David Burgess-Joyce and supported unanimously.
Resolved – That
the site edged red in Appendix 1 to the report, at Cross Lane, Wallasey, not be declared surplus to Council requirements and not be sold at this time.
