Save Wirral's Green Belt

Our Plan:  

Conservatives Councillors will bring more of the 6,000 empty homes back into use and we'll produce a Local Plan that works for Wirral, protecting our precious Green Belt while encouraging development in the urban areas.

So far, we have:

  • Opposed Labour's plans to build on our Green Belt, including the 'Hoylake Golf Resort' and Saughall Massie
  • Argued for a Local Plan to protect our Borough
  • Called for developers to be directed to the urban areas
  • Organised public meetings for residents to find out more

Nationally, Conservatives have:

  • Introduced stronger protections for the Green Belt
  • Scrapped Labour's Regional Planning Strategies
  • Asked for councils to give their views on housing targets (Wirral's Labour Council never responded)
  • Taken action against councils that have failed to produce a Local Plan
