Thanks for that mate, thats a great response!
But what if it gets hijacked by other fans using multiple email addresses and thus outweighing our responses and creating an overall negative response? Would that put a spanner in the works with planning? Or would it just give us a chance to rectify the communitys concerns as you have mentioned?
Sorry if im asking crap questions
Everton had 20,000 responses to the first consultation process, so anything that appears now "out of the blue" will stick out like a sore thumb
Any coordinated effort would be spotted and "outed" to the club to highlight because it would have to be on an enormous scale, much bigger than could be kept "between friends"
They have a firm of data analysts making sure the data is appropriate to use, too. The automated tools can weed out copy and pasted "complaints" in a heartbeat and make sure that only one version is included, but that a note is included too that says the data is available but it appears to have been submitted either in error or maliciously
Over 700 people attended today, which was more than double the amount that attended on a good day in the first consultation, and they were predominantly Blues that i saw during the couple of hours I was there. There were queues to get in, it has been incredibly well received for the first day - I hope it continues like that.
There will be things that were highlighted by the consultation in the first phase, which will have been dealt with before this phase of the process, so planners will see that concerns were addressed and that there was an opportunity for people to see that - if they raise the same concerns again then they will likely be discounted as they have already been dealt with
Heritage complaints aren't for the people of Liverpool, I'm afraid, especially not when it is neglected, near-abandoned dockland that nobody ever gets to see or use. They have been addressed anyway though, and Unesco and the council will be happy with them.
But it is down to us to make sure we do what you have done and complete the process as Evertonians.
If EVERY season ticket holder does it, and gets one more person to do it, then it will be the biggest public consultation on Merseyside in decades. And it will be overwhelmingly positive. What can anyone say against that?
