The ARAG UTC / MMU Project

The ARAG UTC / MMU Project

Over the last 18 months, ARAG has worked very hard with the Community, to keep residents informed and trying to defend Alsager from damaging levels of speculative housing development and the loss of our greenfields. We have also tried to promote the best use of our brownfield sites together with relevant improvements in infrastructure. It isn’t yet appropriate to publish an analysis of the background of planning matters and the decisions which have affected Alsager, as currently there are several applications and appeal decisions pending.

We do feel however, that we need to explain how the ARAG MMU / UTC project has developed, because of the tremendous support this proposal received from the Community. It does appear that Alsager will miss the only window of opportunity we will have to develop what could have been a project of major benefit to our Community. This project would have had an impact across the entire town in terms of jobs education and the local economy.
