Another Mobile Phone Mast Application

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 posted by Steve Williams

Vodafone and Telefonica have today contacted me with a pre-planning application for a mobile phone mast.   The mast would be sited on the pavement outside Tesco Express, Hoylake Road, Moreton, near to the junction with Millhouse Lane.  The mast would be an 11.8 meter monopole housing one set of three antennas, with capacity for another set of three antennas at the top of the structure.

Councillors Chris Blakeley, Simon Mountney and myself would like to hear any thoughts that you have regarding this, in order for us to try and represent your views.  Please contact us with your feelings regarding this matter. 

Mobile Telephone Mast

You may recall Vodafone had made aplication for a mobile telephone mast to be erected at the junction of Hoylake Road and Holt Avenue.  This had been refused by Wirral Borough Council, but then Vodafone had appealed to the Planning Inspectorate.

I have today been informed that the appeal has been dismissed.  If you wish to see full details of the decision then the Appeal Reference No. is APP/W4325/A/11/2153398.  Their site is


Cosy Homes

Thursday, September 15, 2011 posted by Steve Williams

On Monday I attended the first anniversary of the launch of “Cosy Homes” at the Town Hall. So far 11,800 homes have benefitted from this service.

The Warmer Wirral “Cosy Homes” scheme is currently offering free loft & cavity wall insulation (subject to technical survey and a maximum grant) to all Wirral home owners and private rented tenants.  This offer is  part of a project funded by Wirral Council and British Gas.  The project is managed by local environmental charity Energy Projects Plus.  All residents in Wirral are eligible regardless of income, age or status.

A third of the heat lost in an uninsulated home goes through the walls, and another quarter through the roof.  By properly insulating your home, you can expect to save £150 a year if you currently have no loft insulation and £115 a year if you don’t have cavity wall insulation.

To ensure you don’t lose your share of the funds, please telephone the Energy Saving Trust advice centre on freephone 0800 512 012 to book a technical survey or you can register online at and you will receive a call back.
