The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Parish Council: October 2015
Planning appeals, community safety and The Park play area were prominent in discussions at October's Parish Council Meeting on 5 October.
Notification of the dates for the re-opened planning appeal from the three developers Ashley Wall, Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Homes has been received by both the Parish Council and many local residents. The appeal will be completed in five days starting on Monday 2 November 2015 at Wyvern House, Winsford. The meeting will be open to the public but presentation of evidence will only be by prior representation. The proceedings may be watched by webcast from Cheshire West and Chester Council website. Cllr Weaver emphasised that only four new issues will be considered namely CWaC housing supply figures, the impact of Tattenhall and District Neighbourhood Plan, the Nether Peover appeal and the case of Woodcock Holdings Ltd v Secretary of State DCLG & Mid-Sussex District Council.
The issue of traffic speeds in the lanes around Tattenhall was raised at the open forum and there was sympathy for the view that the national speed limit of 60 mph was not appropriate for some of our increasingly busy country lanes, especially as the A41 is limited to 50 mph. The possibility of introducing speed restrictions will be considered by the Community Safety Committee.
Plans have progressed to replace The Park play area with a presentation of drawings due to be submitted at the next Council meeting. In the meantime the remaining play area is expected to be removed completely and groundwork completed in preparation for the new build.
