ARAG has learned that that Councillor Michael E Jones, Leader of Cheshire East Council, will attend the Town Council’s Planning Committee meeting on 14th January 2014. The meeting will be held at the Alsager Institute on Green Drive (off Sandbach Road North) at 7.00 pm
Alsager residents have repeatedly expressed considerable concern and anger, at the number of proposed and speculative developments in the town and the increased housing allocations for Alsager in Cheshire East’s Local Plan Pre-Submission Core Strategy document.
Michael Jones; attendance should give residents the opportunity to hear his views on some of these issues and because we are constantly hearing from our members that they believe ‘Alsager is being dumped upon’, we expect many of you will wish to be present to hear exactly what the Council Leader has to say.
In our last Post we reported that one of Cheshire East’s senior officers, at the Strategic Planning Board, had calculated a figure of 2600 additional houses for Alsager and a growth of 50% in the size of our town.
Please try to attend so that Michael Jones begins to understand ‘that we know what is going on’ and that he is left in no doubt about the level of resentment felt by Alsager’s residents, over plans to wreck the character of our town by increasing housing by 50%.
DON’T LEAVE IT TO OTHERS, THEY MAY BE LEAVING IT TO YOU.
