Southport Businessman Larry Sweeney calls for enquiry into Sefton Planning May 8th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments Southport Businessman Larry Sweeney calls for enquiry into Sefton Planning Larry Sweeney who owns a building in Upper Aughton Road, Birkdale, Southport, which is boarded up because Sefton Council forced the removal of shutters. OTS News.co.uk has access to confidential documents which Sefton Council submitted to the planning inspectorate which raises very serious questions about Sefton Council. It shows Sefton Council submitted false documents to the planning inspectorate. * They stated the shutters were solid shutters when in actual fact they were perforated shutters. *They invited Mr. Sweeney to apply for retrospective planning permission but at the same time they told him they would refuse planning. * No statement was ever issued by Sefton Council to the inspectorate, instead a statement was sent by building control that had no involvement with the shutter issue and further more that statement contradicted a previous statement by the planning department. OTS News.co.uk can now reveal that Sefton Council spent 2 years of tax payers money on this enforcement and their application for reimbursement of these costs was refused by the planning inspectorate. OTS News.co.uk can reveal that the Conservative candidate for Kew Ward, Mr. Jordan Shandley has written to Mr. Sweeney and intends to take up the issue with Sefton Council because of grave concerns with the way Sefton Council are treating local businesses. Mr. Sweeney gave a statement to the fact that he believes Southport should not be part of Sefton Council and should have its own commercially run efficient council rather than be part of a local authority which squanders tax payers money and who’s Chief Executive earns more than David Cameron. OTS News contacted Sefton Council for a statement but the declined to comment on the matter as usual. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
