We have been looking in detail at the draft Cheshire East Strategy Document, which is the basis for that council’s emerging plan. There are a number of differences and inconsistencies between that document and the Alsager Town Plan which we regard as serious. A recent letter received from Fiona Bruce, our MP made it clear that the Cheshire East council’s emerging plan is the principal document which can provide some level of protection from speculative building proposals. She also made it clear that she is urging Cheshire East council to start public consultation of it’s document as quickly as possible.
We are asking the Town Council to allow us to give a presentation of these problems at the Town Council meeting at the Alsager Institute on Tuesday 18/12/2012 at 7.0 p.m. so that we can make it fully aware of the problems we face and so that we can work with it to correct these problems as quickly as possible. It is important that we have the protection of the Cheshire East emerging plan but the plan in our view has to be watertight and totally consistent with the agreed Alsager Town Plan.
We will post again tomorrow to let you know if this presentation will take place and hope that there will be public support at that meeting.
