Some other items from our March Newsletter

Following further recent HGV damage to the decorative plasterwork of 28a-d Gateacre Brow (the listed building on the corner of Sandfield Road) we contacted Travis Perkins and the City Council to discuss what can be done. The result was two Zoom meetings, attended by Travis Perkins' regional director and local manager, along with Phil Melia (the building's owner) and Councillor Malcolm Kelly.

Various options for signage, bollards and kerb realignment were discussed, and at the second meeting LCC highways engineer Ian Wiggins promised to come back with costed proposals (which Travis Perkins may be willing to part-fund). We look forward to seeing and commenting on these in the near future.

The owners of the Brown Cow have been advertising for a new tenant to restore the pub to its place at "the heart of the village ... A place to meet friends and family, to relax with your partner ... Perhaps even bump into Liverpool players again". The tenancy is now 'under offer' - and applications for listed building consent (21L/0096) and advertisement consent (21A/0095) for new signage - as illustrated above - have been submitted.

Meanwhile we sent in comments on the main planning application (see last
Newsletter) welcoming the proposed refurbishment of the pub, but suggesting the need for conditions to restrict the opening hours, noise and lighting levels of the new beer garden at the rear.
