So much for all the hoohah about it staying there until October! Bit of a let-down, that; it would have been a good summer attraction. Don't know what Fort Perch Rock thought about it though - it is a big thing to have by your front gate!

Despite me monitoring planning applications I never noticed this one going through, searching for it just now came up with nothing.

As a temporary structure I guess there is a possibility it might not need planning permission but they would need some sort of licence???

In a recent Echo article, the Council saying that the temporary planning application had already been extended.
Meanwhile, in the same article, the solicitors for Wilkies Fun Palace said that they had never been asked or notified about the structure regarding planning applications.

So the owner of the town’s New Palace and Adventureland arcades complains and it goes.

Hope everyone thanks him by NOT visiting his amusements (which are frankly crap)

Its a bit silly of dave wilkie to moan about it as it brought people to the area and he may have benefited from it as once they had been on the wheel they may have gone into his place,

I think Wilkie's gripe would be that if he had applied for permission to do this, he would probably have been turned down despite being a known local company yet an outside company got permission.

The text of the Echo article indicated that the complaint was about lack of consultation in the planning application process. There was no mention of any commercial matters.

As far as I know, in a planning application, the near neighbours are sent a notice as part of the process. They also get posted on lamp posts or similar, and give basic details of the application and how to complain.
I know that if one of my neighbours were erecting a temporary structure that needed council permission, then I would expect to receive such a notice and would want to know why if I didn't.

Quote from tonight's Echo -
Law firm Kirwans said it contacted the council after a complaint from Wilkie Leisure Group, which owns New Brighton’s New Palace and Adventureland.

Boss David Kirwan said: “As part of three generations who have played such an important role in the development of New Brighton’s leisure offerings, they should at the very least have been consulted about the wheel.”

Wirral Council said Liverpool Fair Ltd would need to apply for planning permission and “follow the usual process” if they wanted to return to New Brighton during the summer or at any point in the future.

How right. Wilkie would probably not have objected to it as it was not a competitor, much more likely because of Wirrals usual casual way of dealing with Planning Matters.
Wilkie has supported New Brighton for many many years and the present state of his funfare is caused more by the overall state of New Brighton, than lack of effort on his part.

As i understood it the big wheel was there as the Rock has a music festival on in a few weeks, and having the big wheel there i would have thought it would bring more people into Wilie's funfair not less, If you take away the cafee's, a few shops and supermarket there's only the crazy golf and small model boating lake bugger up else to do!,

What a waste of time and effort that was! Typical of Wirral, events hyped up then abandoned for whatever reasons..
