The fields at the back of the Mosslands school have been taken over by nature over the past 30 years. When i was a wee nipper these fields where sports fields for the school. (Its Rumored) A housing development on cross lane in the 90's caused problems with the water table and now once a year the field turns in to a bit of a marshland in places.It is a wonderful field full of life and nature. The noise of the creatures and birds is glorious.
However... the owner of West Wallasey van hire wants to pour concrete over it all and create a road from the main office to the fields so that they can store more commercial vehicles. The blue in the photo is his current holdings and the red are his proposed. The area has been designated as an area of green space but for some reason the council are still trying to sell this land, it isn't theirs to sell it is ours. Please sign the petition to stop this from happening.
Good grief, haven't they got enough vans parked around the place already? I bet the local residents would rather look out on what they have now, than on a blinding white vista of vans. This pressure on land is a constant problem and will only get worse - one person's underused waste ground is another person's wildlife haven.
The laughable part is one part of the council is meeting to designate the area as a green space and another faction are negotiating a sell off to West Wallasey, not much detail as of yet, we have lots of wildlife on there to protect, please sign.
Apparently West Wallasey have said they will provide an all weather pitch on Wallacre field as a sweetener, the council have just awarded £375,000 council tax money toward an all weather pitch for Tranmere Rovers, yet our services were threatened for lack of funding and a 5% council tax rise, something not quite right.
To all intents and purposes it would be used for storing vehicles, they WW already have three sites adjacent I doubt they will provide 300 more jobs to run an extra parking facility, the jobs they are talking about would be short term construction jobs, It has not been designated as anything yet to my knowledge, my point is if they were to lease / sell it to WW and allegedly get an all weather playing field paid for and maintained by WW why have they bunged Tranmere Rovers £375,000 for another pitch close by?
