Liverpool Council Opppose Kirkby Stadium

Recommended Posts

It's a bit technical but the topic title sums it up.

 

 

"The development does not appear to be justified and does not relate to Kirkby’s

position in the hierarchy within both the existant Regional Spatial Strategy

(RSS) and the emerging RSS which does not support large scale growth at

Kirkby.

 

It does not consider the role and function of Kirkby within the Regional hierarchy to

explain why it should secure development by relying on trade which could

more appropriately be directed to other centres.

 

In particular there are two sites identified within Kirkby Town Centre which could provide enhanced

retail facilities and assist in revitalising Kirkby. With regard to this, it is

understood that there is an alternative town centre scheme coming forward

which needs to be taken into account in any sequential analysis. There would

not be capacity for both and Knowsley should consider whether the town

centre scheme would better comply with the Knowsley UDP, RSS and PPS6

in terms of location and scale.

 

Unfortunately this has led them to produce the IPS which has little if any

weight or status in statutory terms and should not in any event be used to

reallocate the use of land in this case from green-space to built development.

The production of the IPS departs from statutory planning procedures, the

purpose of which is to bring forward land use policy, and consequential

developments, in a comprehensive and consistent way. Knowsley’s existing

recently adopted UDP does not support these development proposals and it

will be some time before its Local development Framework could provide the

necessary enabling policies.

 

Moreover the IPS acknowledges that Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS), which

is also, part of Knowsley’s development plan, does not support the scale of

development proposed at Kirkby, because the Town’s current position within

the retail hierarchy does not give the town a regionally significant role."

Who knows. LCC are saying that the scheme involving Everton is not the right solution for Kirkby.

 

LCC have realised they made a mistake being biased towards Liverpool and fretting as Everton are willing to move out of Liverpool - IMO they are just trying to put a spanner in the works....

No argument from me on that point, it fits in with my point of view that Everton need to stay in the City so I see it as a means to an end.

 

If it is called in, it will be put in under scrutiny and if they should favour of Development Securities' plan (don't want to get into the Politics of it all but I won't be surprised if Kirkby's New Labour government allow stadium to go ahead when you consider new labour supporters/funders include Tesco and Bill Kenwright).

 

Paul - Let's hope so! (As long as it isn't Kirkby!)
