Limit on Housing

An article from the History Group Scrapbooks of 1984 shows that things do change, even after 30 years!

The article in question "Call for limit on housing" appeared in the Chester Chronicle for April 13th and refers to objections by Tarvin Civic Trust to the Chester Rural Plan at a public inquiry.
In contrast to 2015, the demand for houses was reducing, according to the Civic Trust, and that they were "particularly concerned that land around Church farm and the Vicarage should not be used for homes."

The land earmarked for development was between the High St and the new by-pass, and the City Council agreed that "if housing development had to go anywhere that was probably the best place for it," and "the area had a capacity for 140 houses!"

Ed: "Well 30 years on we have the 140 homes being built by Taylor Wimpey, and, potential developments around Church farm on Tarporley Road, with little contribution to village services!"
