School parking changes

SEFTON Council are tackling inconsiderate and dangerous parking outside a number of Schools during drop off and pick up times. Following the start of the School year, the Council has acted upon concerns by residents, teachers and parents who are worried about inconsiderate and often dangerous parking on restricted areas near 26 Schools across Sefton. As a result, the 5 minute observation period, which is usually afforded to cars parked on single or double yellow lines at Schools, has been removed. Civil enforcement Officers will now immediately issue a penalty charge notice to any vehicle found parked in an area where restrictions are in place in the vicinity of 1 of the Schools identified. Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Regulation and Compliance, said:- "This means that when an Officer is patrolling in the vicinity and they see a vehicle parked on a yellow line between 08.15 and 09.15 or between 14.45 and 15.45, they will immediately serve a penalty charge notice.  We hope that this will make the roads around Schools a far safer and more pleasant environment for pupils, parents, teachers, and residents alike. While this initiative is targeted at 26 Schools, in Sefton, where drivers repeatedly flout the regulations, if other hotspots are identified, they will be considered for inclusion in the scheme."


Residents set to see early New Ferry regeneration ideas

NEW Ferry residents and those who run businesses in the area will have the opportunity to have their say on initial regeneration options at a series of public events.  The consultation events will take place on Tuesday, 12 September 2017, Wednesday, 13 September and Thursday, 14 September 2017, at St Mark's Church on New Chester Road, New Ferry, from 2pm to 7pm.  Over the past few months at the regular community meetings, there have been discussions and ideas put forward for the future of New Ferry. Wirral Council appointed consultants GVA to explore the ideas put forward by local people and also to assess the area's potential to emerge successfully from the impact of the explosion in March; which caused massive devastation to the area; and create a viable and sustainable future for New Ferry.  David Ball, who is leading Wirral Council's recovery operation after the blast, said:- "This is a really significant stage in our response to what happened in March and we want everyone's input into the regeneration plans. New Ferry deserves to see progress made and the proposals must be realistic and deliverable.  Once the consultation has been completed we will be reporting back to the next community meeting, on Monday, 18 September 2017, at 5.30pm, in St. Mark's Church Hall and then within a couple of weeks we will finalize the regeneration plan ready for submission to Government and various other agencies for funding support which will be critical to delivering the regeneration." In addition to the drop in events next week, people will also have the chance to comment on the proposals online. Links to the online survey will be posted on the Council's social media feeds once they go live. David added:- "What we are looking at are initial ideas; more detailed plans and impressions will come forward later. We are committed to continuing to work hand in hand with local people on the regeneration of New Ferry so consultation at this stage is very important; we look forward to sharing these ideas with residents."
