gypsy site

Many people in the parish may wish to comment on the proposal that a small site fronting Tarporley Road, just south of the Telephone Exchange, might become a permanent gypsy site.

The consultation on this is not, as the Parish Council previously thought, a separate issue, but is contained in the much larger consultation on the Local Plan Part 2, a very complex document that gives precise details of land use throughout the Borough. The current period for consultation ends on September 23rd and is non-statutory, meaning that CW&C is seeking views before the final draft is completed. There will be another, formal consultation when the plan is submitted to the Government for approval.

When a large number of people hold views in common there is often a desire to group together. This remains a right which can be exercised if people wish and can be a powerful way of making views known. However the Borough Council stress that it is the volume of individual comments that makes the most impact. The Parish Council then urge that, whatever other action is taken, individuals make their views known directly to the Borough Council.

How can you do that?
