Maghull – Beechcroft Retirement flats

I was recently invited to attend a coffee morning of residents who own flats in this development in Maghull Town Centre together with Labour Councillor Steve Kermode.

The residents had a number of issues they wanted Steve and I to address not least the state of the road surface outside of their homes i.e. Stafford Moreton Way.

Here is a photo I took whilst reviewing this matter with Steve and the House Manager of Beechcroft.

The road surface is very uneven and this leads to the ponding of water which at this time of year can lead to small dangerous skating rinks being created. Not good especially for the elderly.

There is clearly a problem here with the road surface and highway drainage. The pavement is also badly damaged and we were told that this has been caused by Morrisons delivery wagons needing to mount the kerb to pass other vehicles. We have asked Sefton Council to investigate and say what they can do to address the resident’s concerns.

Steve and I had a great time with the residents being served copious cups of tea and being treated to cakes! What a lovely group of people for us both to represent.
