  1. Full report including live video stream can be viewed here so everyuone can seen local democracy in action https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/07/24/eddie-stobart-wins-planning-approval-for-green-belt-plan/ Our future is in their hands! Hopefully the Secretary of State will intervene and ensure it gets a fair hearing. In 40 years of reporting I have never seen a major planning application rejected and then be re-submitted and approved by the same committee - I use the word "same" loosely as the make-up of the committee has changed considerably in the space of eight months - which again is unusual.
  2. It wont be - it will be decided by a Government inspector!
  3. A little worrying in light of all the technical issues with the council's planning portal! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/07/12/how-many-local-plan-and-planning-application-consultations-have-gone-unheard/
  4. I'm not believing anyone's version of events. I have no issue with decisions being made in part 2 if they have to be done for legal reasons - the issue I have is the poor communication AFTER the event, which then fans the flames of conspiracy theories. The decision should have been properly communicated with valid reasons. RE a call in - surely allowing the Stobart development will set a precedent for major development on Green Belt land in the south of the borough?
  5. St Helens have been the masters of the forward pass to split defences for a long time - don't understand why video ref can't be used for these game changing incidents?
  6. Warrington Borough Council actively encourages us to engage and be involved in consultations - and then they make decisions like this behind closed doors by a handful of councillors. https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/06/25/council-will-not-defend-eddie-stobart-green-belt-appeal/ So much for democracy!
  7. Still worrying how inconsistent the team is - and while they may reach finals again they are going to have to go some to beat Saints and hope they catch them on an off day - Wigan starting to get back on track as well.
  8. Our hospital hits the national newspaper headlines with a slightly contrived story! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/06/21/warrington-halton-hospitals-nhs-trust-to-pay-or-not-to-pay-that-is-the-question/ Debate!
  9. Welcome back Boris - hope you get used to the "new" look forum upgrade - we have to upgrade to move with the times.
  10. Algy - you missed a really important date 1st of September 1999 - launch of the first independent daily online newspaper in the country - www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk 😎
  11. Clearly the best team in Europe, landing the biggest prize in Club football. Surely beats being best team in England whether you like Brexit or not! Liverpool clearly like being in Europe Next season will again be a two horse race in the Premiership and it will probably come down to who gets the most points of who - City beat Liverpool so they deserved the title this year. Liverpool's victory over Barcelona in the semi-final was on the greatest ever sporting achievements and certainly matched the miracle of Instanbul. It is certainly a joy to be a Liverpool fan these days and for City to be the BIg club in Manchester
  12. My latest thoughts on the pressures facing our Green Belt in Warrington and a plea to the leader of the council and senior officers https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/05/28/health-is-far-more-important-than-wealth-please-save-our-green-belt/
  13. That word again! Discipline!
