Rock Ferry nursery plan kicked out after parking fears

Plans for an 80-place nursery in the former Well Lane Police Station in Rock Ferry have been kicked out by Wirral's Planning Committee.

Residents living nearby had expressed worries that the busy junction would make traffic worse, and affect road safety for the nearby Well Lane Primary School. 75 residents signed a petition against the plan and, on Tuesday, councillors visited the site to see the problems for themselves.

Councillor David Elderton, Conservative Spokesman on the Planning Committee,said: "We were concerned that with no parking available, a nusery on this site would make road safety worse, not only for the parents and children who would be using it, but also for those at the nearby primary school.

"Road humps and double yellow lines have been installed in the past to try to help, it would have been wrong to add to traffic in this area."
