Knowsley – Green Belt building protests – Can’t say I’m surprised

The Liverpool Echo has the story on its web site – see link above

I missed this story when it was published on 16th December but can’t say I am at all surprised by the protests. Knowsley Council is to allow Green Belt land some of which is bang up against the Melling Parish boundary to be built upon so this decision will affect Sefton Borough as well. Trouble is Sefton Council is just as keen to build on Green Belt as Knowsley.

What is it with Labour-run councils not being environmentally aware? Neighbouring Liverpool (also Labour run) is of course trying to build on green space around Sefton Park. Socialism and strong environmental credentials just don’t seem to go together.
