Planning application for Kew houses expected in spring 2011

One of the biggest battles in Southport in recent years has been over housing. For decades a plot of land at Kew has been identified for housing. In the town we have a desperate need for new affordable homes and this plot was always part of the overall plan. The Tories fought the most shameless and cynical campaign against the project. There candidate with the the support of some of their councillors were putting out leaflets and knocking on doors to oppose the scheme whilst in the council chamber they voted for it! If challenged they just got annoyed and didn't even try to answer the obvious contradiction in their behaviour. Our candidate in that election was Maureen who stood up to their populist antics and won through.
This week I had a report back on the consultation with local residents. I have to confess that the first phase was non too brilliant. A website has been established for those interested in the scheme:

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
