Surrey Street

Latest update – 23rd November 2016

Well, that was over a week ago when we last reported.

This is what it looks like now.  The children are no longer at risk of jagged bits or of running straight into the road.

Surrey Street – update.

Since posting our earlier comments about the grassed area of Surrey Street our assurances are being put into effect. This photograph was taken today with a very pleased Cllr Stuart looking at the first lengths of new timber already in place.

The new fencing is being built, admired by Cllr Paul Stuart.

Some years ago the grassed area shown in our photographs was clearly in council ownership. But when the housing in the wider area transferred from Council ownership to what was then Wirral Partnership Homes a question mark remained over who owned and was responsible for the land in front of the houses. Following requests from your local councillors a decision has been made to make good the fencing and gate so that it is no longer an eyesore and can be kept in good condition with regular grass cutting.
