Members of the newly-appointed Planning Committee are being urged to maintain former grazing land near a busy primary school in Wallasey, as a developer launches a renewed attempt to build on it.
The land, behind Greenleas Close and Greenleas Road is part of the former market gardens and was last used as grazing land. It has never been developed.
A previous application, for 16 houses, was thrown out by the Planning Committee earlier this year, following a campaign by residents, local Conservative Councillors and the Headteacher and many parents at Greenleas Primary School.
Councillors Ian Lewis and Lesley Rennie have lodged their objections to this latest plan, for 13 houses, and will be asking the committee to maintain the decision to retain the land as a vital green space in the urban area.
Councillor Ian Lewis said: "This latest attempt is unwanted by neighbours and those of us who believe our green space in Wallasey must be retained.
"With the support of all but one member of the committee, the previous application was thrown out. The developer has paid little regard to the views expressed by residents previously and this latest application would, if approved, have the same effect: a valuable green space will be lost forever.
"These houses would be better located in an area that needs regeneration, not on our local green space."
Residents can attend the meeting on Thursday 8 June at Birkenhead Town Hall, from 6pm, or watch the meeting on the Council's website
The report prepared, including objections from Ian, Lesley and local residents, which will be considered by the committee, can be found below.
At the Planning Committee, and having been told by the developer that the site was being used for flytipping, permission was granted for the development, in spite of the concerns raised by the Headteacher at Greenleas Primary School, residents and Councillors Ian Lewis and Lesley Rennie
