Public Inquiry Date Announced
The Government has announced that their public inquiry into the Tesco led planning application in Kirkby will start on November 18th. Tesco and KMBC have reacted positively to the early date, Everton Football Club are awaiting a report from their lawyers before confirming their position in relation to the scheme. The pubic inquiry is expected to last anything up to four weeks with the decision expected late 2009 due to the size and complexity of the application.
KEIOC's spokesperson Dave Kelly explained "Over the past eighteen months the KEIOC group has campaigned meticulously for this inquiry at which the application will be given a thorough examination, the sooner the matter is resolved the sooner Everton can address the appalling business predicament they're in.
