Dated 14/10/2018 Signed J Farrar Clerk to the Parish Council

Clerk to Melling Parish Council

Response from Melling Parish Council to an application for the change of use of a pony paddock on Spurriers Lane.

Melling Parish Council held its monthly Ordinary Meeting last night 12th June 2018.  Firstly, the Parish Council would like to thank the 200 or so members of the community for their attendance at that meeting. Unfortunately, for safety reasons the Council was only able to admit a maximum number of 100 people into the school hall.  

In order to make sure that all residents who remained outside were fully informed and able to make comments in the same way as those in the hall itself, Councillor Tony Carr, remained outside the hall to relay the process taking place during the public participation section of the meeting.  Comments from residents were then relayed back into the meeting by Councillor Carr and considered by the Parish Council in the same way as comments made by those inside the hall.

We would like to thank everyone attending the meeting for their understanding of the situation and for their patience.  In particular, we would like to thank those attending from Parishes other than Melling for kindly volunteering to give up their seats in the hall so that Melling residents were able to be admitted.

The majority of those attending the meeting wished to comment on the planning application submitted recently relating to the change of use of a pony paddock on Spurriers Lane.  We confirm that the response of the Parish Council to Sefton Council was agreed at the meeting last night and will be available on our website in due course.  We would advise anyone wishing to comment on the application to do so directly to Sefton Council.
