Melling Labour Action Team to discuss problem pathway

Bill Esterson, Marion Atkinson and Tony Carr


Melling Labour Action Team is meeting with their Knowsley counterparts to discuss the ongoing issue of a problem pathway.

Residents on Satinwood Crescent have contacted Melling Labour Action Team leader Marion Atkinson, Molyneux Ward Labour councillor Tony Carr and Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson to say the path through to Knowsley is a hotspot for antisocial behaviour.

Marion and Cllr Carr have now called a meeting with Knowsley councillors to discuss tackling the issue once and for all.

Marion said: "This has been a long running problem which no one seems to be doing anything about.

"Residents there tell us that there is a major problem with antisocial behaviour and that houses are being targeted by burglars who are using the path as a getaway route.

"So we are goin to meet the councillors on the Knowsley side to discuss possible solutions.

"I have spoken to a lot of people who have made suggestions which we will discuss with our Knowsley counterparts, but if any other residents have a suggestion, please get in touch."

Cllr Carr, who lives in Melling, said the Labour Action Team was determined to tackle the issue.

Cllr Carr said: "there is clearly a problem here and something needs to be done to solve the problem.

"We will make sure that all the potential solutions are discussed during the meeting with the Knowsley councillors.

"We have also flagged this up again with the police on both sides of the border to ensure that they have identified it as an antisocial behaviour hotspot and the area gets the police attention it requires."

To have your say on the issue, contact the Melling Labour Action Team via email on or post at 29 Liverpool Road North, Maghull, L31 2HB.
