MMU – Fiona Bruce Correspondence.

ARAG has been in regular contact with Fiona Bruce MP and there have been a number of letters between us.

We wrote to Fiona Bruce on 10/5/2013 explaining the Town Council and Cheshire East reactions to the ARAG proposal for a University Technical College. We also expressed our concerns about the future of the MMU campus. You can see that letter here.

Fiona Bruce replied on the 12th of June to say that although she has enthusiastically championed the ARAG proposal for an Alsager UTC, Cheshire East only intend to consider a UTC in Crewe. You can see that letter here.

A number of points from our previous letter were not answered and also as Staffordshire University are still interested in working with a UTC in South Cheshire, we don’t consider the matter closed. You can view that letter here.


ARAG has received substantial feedback from residents about the UTC proposal and also about the MMU site in general. In the coming weeks, we will make all residents fully aware of the situation so that they can have their say.
