Constituents share their concerns with me over Hydrodec Group's oil re-refinery plans for Eastham

Eastham Village is a beautiful and historically important part of our borough. So I share my constituent’s concerns about plans that have been put forward by Hydrodec Group to build an oil re-refinery near to the site of the QE2 Dock.

Whilst I understand from Wirral Council that there is no submitted planning application at this time, I am monitoring what happens to this site.

I am worried that such a development could risk the natural beauty of the area. Though Eastham has always had its industrial parts too - both historically and currently - such new sites should not be built without regard to the extensive use our community gets from the country park, and the needs of local residents.

This part of the Mersey is unique. It has special views and natural features that should not be put at risk. It is important for our local visitor economy, and for the health and wellbeing of people in the south of Wirral.

I would encourage constituents to continue to contact me about their concerns and I will keep in contact with those who get in touch with me.

If you are concerned you can phone my office on 0151 645 6590, email me at alison@alisonmcgovern.org.uk or write to me at 99 New Chester Road, New Ferry, Wirral CH62 4RA.

Could you please clarify one important point..is the proposed site near QE2 dock zoned for industrial use?
If so, is it not reasonable to ask why residential planning permission was given for Seaview Avenue, when it would always be so close to an industrial zone?
Further, is it really responsible of the council to expect that this site remain “green field” forever given its zoning for industrial use?
