Meeting was very well attended despite foul weather; hall was packed. That reinforced the community's opposition to the proposals really; particular mention was made of the impact the height and proximity of the building would have on the recently opened reading garden at the childrens centre - which, rather suspiciously, is not shown on the latest plans. A powerpoint presentation also showed the visual impact the development would have, issues with delivery wagons turning off road and into car park etc. Deadline for objections is now 19th January.
I am not against any development at all on principle on that site; if Greene King is so desperate to lease the land for retail, why not build a few smaller units in a more traditional way, to respect the reading garden and add to what the village already provides? I suggest Greasby would benefit from a fishmonger, small hardware, fabric/haberdashery/craft shop etc which would add character and choice, rather than letting one of the big supermarkets in, to the detriment of existing shops.
