Greed leads to end of Bromborough Pool
2:34pm Tuesday 25th September 2012 in Letters
TO satisfy the dreamers and developers in an area with almost 6,000 vacant properties we are about to witness the destruction of a piece of our heritage.
The article on page 34 of the Wirral Globe on September 19, speaks of "extending new life and vibrancy into the village," the village being Bromborough Pool – third oldest industrial village in Britain, first garden village and a "conservation" area.
Quite how destroying this example of Victorian entrepreneurial development – over 35 years older than Port Sunlight – helps this area is beyond comprehension but then there’s no accounting for greed from whichever quarter it originates.
