Wirral Hospice objects to planning application to build pub/restaurant on Drayton Motors site

A planning application has been made for the development of Drayton Motors into an amenity restaurant by Greene King, who own 1,600 pubs in the UK. Over 50 percent of the floor space is proposed for a bar area.

Now although it would be lovely to have a nice new pub/restaurant in the area, its proximity to Wirral Hospice St John’s and particularly the ward area poses concerns, which is why the Hospice is objecting the plans.

The Hospice’s main concerns have been sent to Wirral Council and focus on the following:

1) The significant increase in activity and noise – it is proposed the restaurant will be open from 7am-11pm so there will be a lot of additional traffic and noise at all times of the day, including early morning and late night deliveries and waste collections
2) Traffic congestion and safety
3) The security of our building and safety of our staff, patients and families, especially at night (especially important in light of the recent theft of a catalytic converter from our patient minibus)
4) Competition with our own catering facility, the Hub, as well as other Clatterbridge Health Park food facilities
5) Possible future developments that would affect the hospice e.g. flashing signs, speakers on patio, large parties, spotlights, special events/ BBQs, change to a public house…

We would like the local community to know our position on the planning application and are asking for those who support our objection to sign up to this online petition or write a short letter to Wirral Council, which can either be dropped off directly at the Hospice’s main reception and we will forward it on or by writing directly to the Council:


FAO Mrs C Parker (App/14/00038),
Dept of Regeneration,
Housing and Planning,

We kindly request that all objections are submitted by Mon 24 March 2014. Thank you in advance if you are able to support this!
