No more Clubs or Pubs!! Improvement of Leisure facilities.
IT NEEDS A BIG DEVELOPMENT ! LONG OVERDUE !
Yes but we do not feel a resort type development in England in the
21st century is viable – look at
Blackpool. It’s one thing to build it but another to maintain
and promote it!
Brighton needs a major development to attract business and tourism
which in turn creates employment and prosperity.
has to be based on the needs of our community and to be feasible 12
months of the year – we do not need a graveyard from September
much so – we have nothing whatsoever to do for leisure in New
Brighton. We are always left out of everything.
about time some leisure facilities were installed.
New Brighton needs a new development to bring it in line and up to date
with other resorts providing it is done with great thought and with
N.B. residents support.
will hopefully bring prosperity to the area.
BRIGHTON NEEDS A MAIN ATTRACTION IN THE FORM OF AN OLYMPIC SIZE
SWIMMING POOL WHICH WOULD BE OPEN 12 MONTHS OF THE YEAR. A PLASTIC
DOME WOULD COVER IT DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. AT THE MOMENT ALL THAT
N.B. OFFERS TO THE TOURIST IS FRESH AIR.
would be nice to see New Brighton used more with more to do.
about time some investment was put into this area of the Wirral.
Needs to encourage visitors but provide services for local people and
be “family friendly”
AREA IS RIPE FOR DEVELOPMENT. I WOULD FAVOUR FACILITIES FOR THE YOUNG
NOT JUST TOURIST ORIENTATED DEVELOPMENTS.
would like to see controlled, imaginative and innovative development
without being outlandish or over the top. It needs careful thought
and planning. N.B. is seen more as a day-trip place rather than a
holiday resort – conference clientele may be/could be
I BELIEVE THE BEST AND MOST FEASIBLE DEVELOPMENT
WOULD BE A PLEASURE DOME SIMILAR TO THE ONE AT
RHYLL INCORPORATING AN ALL- WEATHER SWIMMING POOL.
People have always been attracted to this part of the coastline. It is very
beautiful and could raise money for the whole area. We could attract
artists and craft people like the Left Bank in Paris……..
DEVELOPMENT IS LONG OVERDUE. THERE IS SO MUCH TO OFFER RESIDENTS AND
for the area is long overdue. When visitors come to the area they
have very little to do. We need something for the local people and
something that will attract visitors and something that will take the
local kids off the streets.
IT WILL NEVER BE A FIRST CLASS RESORT AGAIN BUT SOME DEVELOPMENT IS
Most definitely – a complex, shopping, swimming, cinemas, arcades
WE NEED IT SO MUCH.
I would like to see the potential of the area brought out – more
opportunities for jobs for local people and development for visitors.
THAT IS FUN AND WOULD BREATHE SOME LIFE INTO THE AREA WOULD BE GOOD –
E.G. AN OPEN AIR POOL.

OF EXISTING BUILDINGS BEING REMOVED.

would like to see more leisure facilities – swimming baths and
Fairground. Also a good hotel and motel to get visitors to come and

BE MADE INTO A FIRST CLASS THEATRE. ALSO SOME REALLY NICE PLACES TO
EAT WITH LOVELY MUSIC. IT WOULD DO NO HARM TO LOOK AT SOME OF THE
PLACES IN SPAIN.

As there is nothing to do, half the time it’s like a Ghost
people are begging for simple secure space. Swimming Pool, Skate
Board Park, Area for B.M.X. Biking.
SOME OF THE PLANS DRAWN UP ON THE BACK OF AN ENVELOPE? Concentrate on
a nice indoor Leisure Centre like Rhyll Sun Centre – shops,
restaurants etc. Don’t waste money on outdoor swimming pools-
they don’t pay – try to keep the area upmarket – no
more 3rd rate housing and cheap flats (used mainly for

not much shelter for visitors when the weather is bad – and

SOME OF MY FOLLOWING COMMENTS ARE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION AS
OVER DEVELOPMENT CAN POSSIBLY LEAD TO AN ADVERSE RESULT.

asked for their opinions if it keeps them off the streets and from
causing trouble because of boredom.
I DON’T THINK THAT IS NECESSARY – THERE IS PLENTY OF SPACE.
I WOULD PREFER THAT ALL THE BROWN SITES WERE VITALISED FIRST –
GREEN SITES SHOULD BE A LAST RESORT.
feel the areas of open space are quite unique in urban areas and
should be protected.
sure – it would depend on the nature of the development.
THE DEVELOPMENTS ARE FOR THE COMMUNITY AND NOT PRIVATE PROFIT.
SURE WHERE THIS IS……….
this would keep young folk from playing on the roads. What about a
Caravan Park? I’m sure that would be very popular as I used to
come to Caravan Club rallies here.

the previous pier should never have been demolished. A PURELY
POLITICAL ACT. At the time the foreman in charge stated that the then
structure would have stood for another 100 years such was its robust

BUT THINK IT WOULD BE TOO EXPENSIVE TO DREDGE RIVER TO ENABLE FERRY

years ago so don’t think it would pay.

I.E. THE ANCHOR/GRAND HOTEL.

are enough supermarkets. The old pool site is the focal point of the
seafront – it should not be dominated by a store plus car park.
A DECENT SUPERSTORE.
see no need for a superstore which would ruin the character of New
Brighton sea front ( unless it is built in an Art Deco style with a
minimum of external advertisement placarding). Presumably it would
also require a large car park.
feel that New Brighton residents should not be held to ransom by a
corporate organisation which would take a prime spot within the
resort thereby ruining that length of promenade for any future
development re leisure centre, skateboard park etc.
would prefer to see a shopping mall to cater for all.

the only way it would happen I would prefer to reject it.

THAT IT WAS EVER DEMOLISHED.
LIKE POLITIC SPEAK TO ME. WILL SOMEONE EXPLAIN HOW A SUPERSTORE, WHO
ARE SOLELY CONCERNED WITH REMOVING YOUR CASH, ALBEIT FOR GOODS, WILL
BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REVENUE – APART, OF COURSE, FROM THE SHORT
TERM SITE PURCHASE. SOUNDS
LIKE THE USUAL WIRRAL COUNCIL CLOWN GOBBLEDEGOOK TO ME.
it be the best place for a superstore? There must be a better place
to put a complex like that! Put the baths back there.
PREFER THIS TO BE USED FOR THE OPEN AIR SWIMMING POOL.
THE WRONG PLACE. IF SUCH A STORM OF THE MAGNITUDE OF THE ONE THAT
DESTROYED THE BATHS WERE TO HIT, FOOD OR WHATEVER WOULD BE SCATTERED
ALL OVER THE PROM. AN ALTERNATIVE LOCATION SHOULD BE FOUND.
think this would detract from local shops as need would still be
there for people without cars, last minute purchases and buying small
amounts of food, not pre-packed.
IDEA HAS GOT TO BE A JOKE! WE ALREADY HAVE ASDA AND KWIK SAVE. THE
LOCAL SHOPS IN VICTORIA ROAD WOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS. I WOULD PREFER
NO DEVELOPMENT AT ALL.
do not need another superstore – Asda 5 mins away, Tesco 7 mins
away, Sainsbury’s 10 mins away. Another one? One year away from
disaster for small shops. Think community service. I’ve worked
on Seabank Road for 30 years. Have you?
HEAVENS SAKE USE YOUR BRAIN – WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE
SUPERSTORES, THIS WOULD SPOIL NEW BRIGHTON FOR GOOD! I DO NOT BELIEVE
THAT YOU CANNOT DO ANY OF THE OTHER THINGS WITHOUT THIS MONEY.
IDEA FOR THOSE WHO LIVE LOCAL IN NEW BRIGHTON.

LOOKING FOR FOOLS.

camera on the first storm! Put it somewhere else.
all means. People would come from all over and it would make local
people very happy not having to travel to a decent store.
am against a Superstore as I don’t think it would profit and I
don’t want building on the Tower Grounds even though I would
like New Brighton to prosper.
because this will create jobs in the area. Also we want to know what
of Superstore it is. Will it affect the Kwik Save at all?
WE HAVE TO RELY ON A “TESCO” OR “ASDA” TO
ATTRACT PEOPLE TO NEW BRIGHTON THEN IT WON’T SUCCEED.
– more traffic, more pollution, Kwik Save is excellent. Why
can’t a lovely heated swimming pool and a Health and Fitness
centre be built on the site of New Brighton Pool instead?

FOR A SUPERSTOREBUT
WHY CAN’T WE HAVE OUR POOL BACK ? WE NEED FACILITIES FOR
VISITORS NOT HOUSES AND SHOPS.

are plenty of stores serving the area already. Local shops would lose

Brighton’s waning reputation as a resort.

not a joint venture to improve and update the facilities there

about a Marina for yachts and motor cruisers like in Brighton which
is adjacent to an Asda Superstore and shopping mall.
leisure facilities for Wirral families.
not redevelop what already exists? A superstore could be made out of
the indoor funfair, some of the more run down pubs could house the

complete “tidy up” of derelict property and regeneration

Superstore developers are spurious. Funds must come from EEC grants

much better bus service so that people who do not drive can get to

LOT OF FUSS IS MADE ABOUT LACK OF FACILITIES FOR THE YOUNG.
CONSIDERING THAT THE POPULATION OF NEW BRIGHTON IS MAINLY ELDERLY,
HOW ABOUT MORE FACILITIES FOR THEM?
think a good hotel – possibly incorporating the Health and
fitness centre would be a welcome addition especially with 12 Quays
now operating. We don’t see many police about at the moment.

hope to see with this new development?

potential for New Brighton is limitless. Those who saw it 40 or 50

never to return. Let us not have this happen again.

I would really like you to do is to look ahead and make New Brighton
a really lovely place to live in and for people from all over the

suppose I will ever see it.

and over again there have been great plans for New Brighton and none
of them have materialised, thank goodness – Here’s hoping
that apart from plans to refurbish our lovely little Floral
Pavilion theatre none of the other suggestions come to fruition. Just
keep the place clean as it stands now.
the old Baths site I would like to see a special park where the youth
could practise their roller boards and trick cycles – much
better than the Bandstand in Vale Park – Sorry if I seem
negative. It would be nice to be able to swim in the sea safely. As
we are a seaside resort, money might be better
spent in saving our shore and sea. Also better toilet facilities.
