Do you remember we wrote, 28th September 2020, when Labour Digmoor Cllr Finch (Vice-Chair at the previous meeting) who was elected in May 2019, spoke about “seeing mounds of earth” at the Beacon Park Golf Course. Well, you can hardly miss them?
“But the whole matter was astonishing as, having listened to the Leisure Report being given by the Chairman of West Lancashire Community Leisure Ltd and the Serco Area Manager, Cllr Finch asked about “Something Mark said about re-profiling land, what does that mean, I don’t understand”.
To which Mr Snaylam replied “In 2012 we inherited a contract for landfill imported, it’s taking some time to move some from one area to another for the original planning permission final phase, more spaced out”.
“But Serco took a year from 2011 to assess the viability of the Beacon Park Golf Course and agreed to the 2012 contract them-selves. It’s all in WLBC minutes. As John Nelson stated, the work didn’t start until 2013 and has been entirely the responsibility of Serco to date. Any breaches of planning permissions have been by Serco. It was Serco served on 16th May 2018 by the then WLBC Solicitor Terry Broderick with a “Breach of Condition Notice Reference E/2015/0223/BCN” against Serco Leisure Operating Limited that required compliance with stated conditions for the land at Beacon Park Golf Centre”.
Nearly three months later, and now it’s mounds of mud. No compliance with the “Breach of Condition Notice”. Just mud! Does Cllr Finch now ask “What are those mounds of mud”? Or has he never been back to the Beacon Park Mud Course?
