Sport England raises concerns over Wirral scheme


A hybrid application for homes and a new education facility is set to be considered by Wirral Council, with Sport England having voiced concerns.Forth Homes and Kingsmead School are behind the proposals, with outline permission being sought for a new sixth form block and a full application having been submitted for 25 homes.Sports England has objected to the proposal because of concerns surround the loss of playing fields associated with the project being brought forward.The applicant has agreed to a commuted sum – to be secured via a S106 agreement – to bring forward a redundant playing pitch at Sandringham Avenue as part of the project.
