Lively meeting on plans for Rock Ferry High School site


We had a large and lively meeting on Friday regarding plans for the Rock Ferry High School site.

We’ve agreed to meet again on March 13, but the unanimous decision of Friday’s meeting was that the grounds be kept as they are, with the woodland and open spaces conserved.

It was likewise agreed that the school building should be demolished and that, on the school imprint, local residents would like the council to invite developers to build retirement homes.

From the meeting too we set up a temporary residents association, which will have a key role to play in determining the future of the site.

We also asked the council for an audit of brownfield sites in Rock Ferry, on which they might be able to build new homes. I also asked for a detailed breakdown of the whole school site and what covers it.

Some residents who were present at the meeting then asked whether the new Youth Zone could go into the school. This will be followed up as an idea. But some of the funds for this project are committed by outside backers who specifically have signed up to the site in central Birkenhead between the police station and Methodist church.

We’ll get a report back on all this on March 13.

We also passed a unanimous decision requesting Lovells to return to the council the right to develop land at Five Ways and around Church Road.

Chris Meaden, one of the local councillors, will seek council support at the next council meeting for other developers to be invited onto the sites.
