Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I understand that in 2008, or thereabouts, the Wirral Local Wildlife Site Partnership made a proposal to WMBC (subsequently referred to Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service) that land to the East of the Municipal Golf Course, which would be subsumed into the proposed Hoylake Golf Resort, should be declared as a Site of Biological Importance.

Please may I see a copy of this report?

What happened to the proposal?

Was it discussed by a Council Committee and if so, please, may you direct me to the agenda and minutes, etc?

Yours faithfully,

John H Hutchinson

Dear Mr Hutchinson,


Wirral Council thanks you for your request please find information
Regeneration and Environment can provide as follows:


As requested please see the attached report produced by the Merseyside
Environment Advisory Service for Wirral Council relating to Hoylake


Proposals for new Sites of Biological Importance (SBIs) are considered by
the Wirral Local Sites Partnership using selection criteria agreed in 2007
(based on DEFRA guidance issued in 2006).  Cheshire Wildlife Trust have
recently reviewed the selection criteria for the Cheshire Region and it is
proposed to adopt these for Wirral by means of a report to the Council's
Cabinet/full Council in the first quarter of 2016.  The report will also
include any other outstanding changes to the existing schedule of SBIs,
including the proposed designation of Hoylake Langfields.  If the new
selection criteria are approved by Cabinet/full Council, the intention
will be that all SBIs will be re-assessed against the new criteria over
the coming years.


We trust that you find this information of assistance.


Yours Sincerely,


Tracy O'Hare
