  • Clearer signage to enable the public to find particular businesses more easilyProduction of a guide to Carr Lane to introduce the public to the number and variety of businesses there.
  • Reduction in commercial through traffic along Market StreetImprovement in closed time at Hoylake level crossing by better timing of inbound/outbound trains
  • It would be nice if all the residential properties could be re housed in Hoylake. Make the estate industrial only, with another access other than over the railway lines.
  • Access is fine Just need to encourage more business and leisure, bowling etc
  • Carr Lane industrial estate should be promoted as a genuine asset for Hoylake.  It is an alternative place for employment, for services, for retail, and should be far more widely known.  However improved access is essential, to avoid vehicles waiting at
  • Need to look at road access as currently the volumes of traffic through Hoylake at peak times are increasing and without an effective transport policy Hoylake will become more difficult to access by road
  • as prevous mentioned park needs help
  • A thriving and diverse industrial estate is important for the area.  More information about services/businesses should be available, particularly those that are open to the general public.
  • As said before build a shopping mall with a multi store carpark, and pedestrianize  market st thus creating the promenade more usage  and  creating a whole new road  from say  heron road  in and out making Hoylake a safe place for the elderly to shop and
  • signposts near roundabout to inform people what is there over railway tracks
  • I work on Carr Lane. It really does feel like the end of the earth down here! we really need to look at drawing the puplic over the level crossing more. We really feel detatched for Hoylake.
  • SKATEPARK
  • Good do with better signage to find roads & businesses.
  • Encourage Council to have lower business rates as this makes opening up practically impossible for many small businesses.
  • The level crossing is the areas largest disadvantage. This is immediately obvious at rush hours. A bridge is unrealistic. The only other way in is to re-join Carr Lane, effectively giving the facility to Saughall Massie. Without a proper road access, the
  • No more retail over the lines as it would fragment the high street. Although it is up to the individual retailer if that is where they want to be but we should not encourage it.
  • Encourage creative manufacturing and ensure that Hoylake maintains a strong economic base for the future of employment in the area
  • skate park !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Lots could be done. Encourage a private gym is needed. The closest one is at the Concourse and that is seriously far to small. Local employment is also needed, to help promote the local identity. imagine Ice cream produced in the Carr estate being sold in
  • The estate is a key element in the overall environment that makes Hoylake what it is.  A thriving industrial estate improves the economy and provides important local job opportunities and access to key services.  Expanding the scope of the estate to inc
  • There was a proposal once to form a link road from the rear of Carr Lane towards the M53 Link. This would be a better use of funds than creating a road bridge or railway cutting to get rid of the level crossing at Hoylake. It would improve access to Carr
  • Sort out the railway crossing timings to improve access and so businesses spend less time sitting at the crossing every day
  • The land and or units would be a good location for a skate/bmx park and kids/youth social hub.
  • give it a clean up
  • Make it cleaner
  • More trees
  • Sports facilities would be useful but may replicate nearby concourse.
  • Get the comments of people who live and work there, not just people who dont live or work there… like me!
  • It needs more than one access. It needs housing lots of it not just Industry. At the moment when the rail crossing closes due to trains. A couple of heavy goods lorries take up most of the road  to the roundabout,Market St becomes blocked right back past
  • Encouraging alternative uses for the industrial estate should be top priority. Leisure and wholesale retail are excellent ideas as well as a weekly market as mentioned before. Better access roads should also be put in place.
  • Please get Merseyrail to raise the barriers between trains so you dont sit waiting to cross into Carr Lane for 14 minutes at a time
  • Requires a major upgrade to improve physical quality of public realm and the business areas. Focus in part at least on developing a Hoylake Business Park for white collar jobs as well as the present and valuable small service businesses, starter units, li
  • Access to, and improvement of the area is important.
  • alternative, renewable energy, recycling centre, with the current vogue for recyclable energy we could have a donate centre for wood based waste.
  • Vintage Fairs would be great I would certainly have a stall – vintage clothes, furniture and Arts and Crafts
  • Not supermarkets though as this will kill the highstreet, maybe clothes retailers, boots etc
  • Skate park, possibly indoor one in an unused unit like Rampworxs in Liverpool.
  • A indoor skate-park like Boneyard (Chester) or Rampworx (Aintree)
  • Maybe a childrens soft play area would be good as there isnt one in the immediate locality
  • We do not need retail – keep that on main road but do need small businesses.
  • Anything that restricts the waiting times at the level crossing onto the estate would be a big advantage, but other than bulding a bridge or resurrecting the by-pass idea round the back from the upton By-Pass, I dont think it can be done.
  • as i live in carr lane more money to be spent on lihting and footpath the park need a revamp
  • The whole industrial estate is a polluted mess and is arguably too shut off by the railway crossing to continue to be used as an industrial site at all.
  • Perhaps providing attractive signage into the area.
  • Again, opportunities to advance our town, need to revamp and improve our attractivness to visitors and locals
  • Level crossing! (Nightmare)
  • Carr Lane currently has an embargo on allowing leisure industry within the designated industrial area – this is ridiculous and from the dark ages. There are plenty of opportunities for industry to flourish throughout the Hoylake are and does not need to b
  • Its always been seen as the forgotten Hoylake..access always an issue..dangerous in some parts of the line.. or a pain in the backside because the barrier is dropped a long time before the trains arrival
  • Access is difficult, we need a bridge.  Also, the area is very scruffy
  • I dont visit this area often because it has no use to me – making the area more attractive might draw more people to it.  I think the main focus for this area should be creating more jobs, whether in retail or manufacturing.  Youll need to highlight an
  • Stop businesses leaving goods outside their premises. Part of Hoylake looks like a scrap yard.
  • Breaking down barriers between Carr Lane & Hoylake Centre so we are a whole community
  • Yes something tangible, not cold Victoriana. Ive seen too many ghost towns in the USA that are reduced to twee coffee shops selling Christmas decorations in July.
  • Making better use of Carr Lane would bring work into the village.
  • An indoor swimming pool could be used by all age groups rather than a skateboard park.
  • I feel the residents of the council houses in this area have tolerated enough. Smarten up one area for healthy living – one area for industry & bring in some fun for the youth Yes to parks and skateboards and swimming pools and a cinema & NO ALCHOHOL area
  • The industrial estate looks very tatty and does not appear well kept. Businesses vary in their presentation some are good others grotty.
  • The industrial estate would be ideal for 7d as more parking is available – but better road access would be necessary
  • Hoylakes roads are often clogged with traffic passing through to get to places such as Morrisons, Asda, Tesco etc. Perhaps it wouldnt look like the land that time forgot if some of the overgrown areas were used to attract people into Hoylake.
  • An alternative route in and out of the estate if the present railway crossing barriers fail there is no vehilcle access on or off.
  • It is essential to have heavy vehicle access from Saughall by pass to the industrial estate to enable the above and reduce industrial traffic through Hoylake which is extremelt bad and environmentally unpleasant for pedestrians.
  • Though the access to the industrial estate is a problem the biggest issue is the overall condition of all the buildings and the signage.
  • Indoor leisure centre etc. would create more of an access problem.
  • Traffic access is a limitation.  If additional access was available from the Gilroy nature reserve end more people could be employed there and services to the public could be encouraged.
  • Hoylake is fortunate to have a beach and prom, but doesnt have any nice footpaths for country walks. The path to Gilroy could be a fabulous walk if it was tidied up & something done about the stinking ditch that runs alsongside
  • Rail crossing kills this area
  • Preserve farming land and open space.
  • Enough space for cinema, small retail park.
  • An increase in traffic to Carr Lane will  require reassessment of the road at the roundabout due to backing up of ttraffic stopping the traffic on Market Street. It used to be wide enough for 2 lanes of traffic which allowed through traffioc to access Mar
  • The word industrial should be changed. The revolution of Industry is mostly outsourced but industrial. This has a tendency to become a very easy ground, go and look, and see. It is a very unfriendly place, nothing pleasing to the eye.
  • They want to build houses on spare waste land. This is not acceptable as we find it hard to cross the road now. It would be worse if they build on it and there is a lot of wild life there. Where will they go?
  • It would be great to have a gym in Hoylake (i.e. a quality one such as Total Fitness or DW etc).
  • Because of the level crossing and the fact that it isnt “”on the way to anywhere else””, what goes on on the industrial estae is largely a “”closed book”” to me and I am probably a typical Hoylake resident in that respect.  If it is to become part of the Hoy
  • I know very little about business rates etc. on the estate.
  • This section does not affect me and has little or no impact on the overall town.
  • No more super markets or Hoylake main street will die Build an indoor sports arena. Make Hoylake prom part for bikes, people use them that way now in both directions much to the surprise of pedestrians
  • Access would limit too much use
  • Opening up the other end of Carr Lane is important & can help develop the industrial estate. Indoor sports facilities would be an asset. Make better use of fields by estate. All weather pitches? Improve drainage for grass pitches? Skateboarding Park?
  • More job opportunities needed on the industrial estate.
  • There is enough retail – we do not want to do anything to the detriment of local shops. We would welcome manufacturing industry and improving the environment.
  • A climbing wall would be good
  • To increase uptake of retail indoor leisure then train service needs to improve especially off peak times.
  • No strong opinions on this subject.
  • Carr Lane is just not a very nice place.
  • Indoor Leisure – swimming facilities / sport facilities.
  • Businesses would benefit from better / clearer signage to be located, perhaps a map / plan showing their locations.
  • Needs village support.
  • 7b Hoylake Station on hoardings on the Carr Lane side of the station & fencing are an ugly eye sore. Plants organised by rail staff are appreciated
  • Is it absolutely necessary for 2 trains to clear before the traffic is allowed to cross the lines thereby causing endless traffic holds ups even up to the roundabout.
  • Create a wall/high fence between station platform & industrial estate: not very aesthetically pleasing for visitors coming to Hoylake by train.
  • However the above would require some traffic reducing measures to Birkenhead Road, could traffic approach the Industrial estate from a different route?
  • Needs a better access and exit route.
  • The Carr Lane site needs to be refurbished. Its rents and rates are a valuable asset and something should be done to improve access. Possibly a new access road from W Kirby to New Hall Lane (from Gilroy Rd).
  • Create retail units in this area and promote their location Carr Lane seen as a bad area – image needs improving.
  • RESURFACE THE ROADS is an imperative before my suspension gives out AGAIN
  • Area beyond railway station has always looked run-down and tatty.  Needs general sprucing up, tidying and use some of space for a lovely new skateboarding site?
  • A great example of poor planning policy is the planning permission given to ?the underground gym? with as many as 30 people arriving at the same time without the provision for a single parking space, abandoning cars anywhere, this causes complete havoc to
  • Yes, don’t build any houses over there.
  • If Carr Lane is to develop then it is necessary for there to be a new road access. Any increase in traffic will cause utter chaos with the rail crossing.
  • This is an area which needs much improvement, both in its appearance and its usage.
  • better timing on the level crossing to ease flow of traffic
  • A Hoylake brand is important, but it needs to be flexible to enable co-operation with West Kirby and more broadly e.g. The North West Golf Coast, to ensure maximum impact.
  • Main problem is access
  • A significant problem lies in access because of the railway crossing. Major expansion / public image would exacerbate this.
  • I see access as one of the main problems here.  There are enough large wagons travelling through the twon already.
  • This site is currently a hotch-potch of organisations, it needs a complete overhaul, regarding infrastructure. The road access facilities are inadequate, excessive speed is a factor, by the estate users (eg Deeside Laundry / Newhall (White van man menta
  • Allow more leisure areas in estate eg sports – develop paths/cycle lanes to West Kirby – more road access to Black Horse Road
  • Carr Lane is industrial. Increasing activity beyond that which now exists would need a different access over the railway line or from another direction. The railway crossing causes traffic jams now so thought should be given to either a bridge or subway a
  • Ideal place for a cinema
  • Better road access and some method of reducing the traffic jams in station road and along Market St. An alternative road would help going through estate yo West Kirby Rd and China Farm Lane.
  • Make sure residents adjoining the indutrial estate are consulted at every level
  • fill in pot holes
  • Being on the train line the estate lends its self to retail and leisure ie. soft play place skate park or climbing wall centre for young people.
  • Access is bad. They were talking about putting a bridge over there, but I hope it has been scrubbed as diabolical – over the railway line
  • Carr Lane has been the forgotten part of Hoylake for too long Improving access and existing park/playing field should be a priority As should litter picking/rubbish removal
  • The industrial estate is vital to this area and should be encouraged. Forgive my bad spelling please.
  • Improve industrial area. Make appearance more appealing.
  • Reduce time spent at level crossing ie. more precise timing of trains
  • How about widening the roads & creating parking spaces or a car park for visitors
  • Carr Lane should always be the industrial heart of Hoylake. Having said that Carr Lane has always had to contend with the inconvenience of the busy railway crossing.
