Hoylake prepares to launch a new town plan and a new lifeboat

Hoylake comes under the spotlight this week (Thurs 6 Nov) as two groups reveal ambitious plans for the area. Proposals for a New Town Plan for Hoylake will be just one of the topics at the meeting organised by Hoylake Vision, the community planning forum.  The Chair of Hoylake Lifeboat, James Lodder will also be on hand to tell residents about the revolutionary new addition to the station.

“This is a great opportunity to visit the Holiday Inn Express, meet with your neighbours and discover what the future could hold for Hoylake. We will be able to update residents on our progress on a Plan for the area and we are delighted that Hoylake Lifeboat have agreed to join us to share their news” said Peter Edwards, Chair of Hoylake Vision. He continued “Part of the work is to consider developing a master plan which could, for example,  incorporate a new town square;  improvements to the Carr Lane industrial area or regeneration of the promenade.

“ It will be great to harness that commitment and energy of our local community organisations and residents to enable us to arrive at a Plan for the town that it is strongly supported and shared by the people who live here,” he continued. “The draft plan needs to be widely consulted upon locally, and the final version must win more than 50 per cent of votes at a referendum to be held some time in 2015. If successful it will become a statutory document that will have real powers.”

And it’s all change for the Lifeboat Station as it prepares to take on board the new vessel, the Shannon class lifeboat, to be named the ‘Edmund Hawthorn Micklewood’.

A spokesperson for Hoylake Lifeboat said: “We are hoping to welcome our latest recruit at the beginning of December.  The crew are now undergoing intensive training with the purpose-built Launch and Recovery Vehicle which has already been delivered.

The new boat is designed to revolutionise the way we save lives at sea, the Shannon is 50 per cent faster than our current boat with a top speed of 25 knots – a crucial factor when lives are at risk.  We are delighted that Hoylake Vision has invited us along as guest speakers as this will provide an opportunity to share this most exciting time for our Lifeboat station.”

The meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn, Hoylake on Thursday 6 November at 7.00 pm
