Davies, Field and SIP Car Parks are snubbed at the Planning Inspectorate

25th July 2015

Bogus environmental campaigners Frank Field MP and Council leader Phil Davies (ably fronted by SIP Car Parks) were dealt a swift, timely kick in the teeth the other day when their plans to concrete over one of the last remaining playing fields in the centre of Birkenhead failed at the Planning Inspectorate.

Here’s the decision, from the Appeals Casework Portal.

Note, despite Davies’ claims to be acting from a heartfelt desire to improve life for local residents and their children, as set out in this sham pre-election leaflet (where he appears to have had the ever-present suit and tie surgically removed beforehand), the submitted appeal papers dishonestly described the land as follows:

bogus unused grassed area birkenhead

So it’s good news and the Planning Inspectorate has done its job, spotted the deceit and packed them all off.

Still, given the proximity of this playing field to downtown Birkenhead, it’s one to keep a close eye on.  Big business and big money are no strangers to setbacks such as these and despite the desperate dishonesty and the vandalism meted out on site aimed at forcing the Planning Inspectorate’s hand (the felling of trees and ploughing up of the grass, leaving a dangerous mudbath) …they may regroup and try again.

  1. that is a severe A””E kicking for the council who usually get away with murder let hope this this is the first of many for the council & they are forced to reinstate the land & trees.

      SIP car parks are the new owners John, so I think local people will have to rely on their goodwill. Still, even they may be in a better position to replant the site than the abusive council – which seems to value paying off its crooks far higher than meeting the needs of local families.

    Sadly it’s true. They’ll be back.
