The Statements of Persons Nominated have now been published for Nether Peover and Peover Inferior. As the number of nominations is equal to the number of seats, the election is uncontested.
The candidates are listed on the following Statements:-
Lower Peover Parish Council are calling for Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) to take stronger action following months of misery for residents living adjacent to the new development.
Having initially been refused planning permission by CWAC, with strong local opposition which was supported by Cllr Mark Stocks, the developer Harvey Homes won an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to build 30 homes at a site adjacent to Holly Tree Drive, with a new entrance to be built on Middlewich Road.
From the start of the building early in September 2018, when earthworks were started by contractor Westshield, the site has solely been accessed via Holly Tree Drive, with HGVs driving up and down Holly Tree Drive on a daily basis ever since. On some days residents have logged up to 50 truck movements a day consisting of mostly 30 ton tippers carrying hard core, articulated trucks delivering huge concrete drains and ready mix concrete deliveries. Due to the limited width of Holly Tree Drive, trucks have been seen mounting the kerb to pass, unloading onto the residential street and blocking residents’ driveways and pavements. This has led to resident concerns about pedestrian safety.
Cheshire West and Chester Planning Enforcement Department issued a Breach of Condition Notice on September 21 to Harvey Homes, giving the builders 28 days to stop using Holly Tree Drive as a construction site access, but this has been challenged by the developer and an additional application to vary the condition was submitted and subsequently refused.
With the builders now blaming delays on the Highways department to give the go ahead for the new access, CWAC state that they are awaiting action from the Westshield before signing off the agreement. The action from the Planning Enforcement department now lies with the legal team and the timeframe for action is unlikely to provide an outcome before the access to Middlewich Road is completed. The stalemate between the contractors and the Borough Council now leads to increasing frustrations for residents caught in between.
Cllr Louise Corlett, Chairperson of Lower Peover Parish Council said: ‘’The Parish Council are extremely concerned about the use of Holly Tree Drive by Westshield to gain access to the building site. We are unhappy that residents are being subjected to daily inconvenience with over 50 articulated lorries going down their narrow street every day. This was a quiet, calm and safe residential area of Lower Peover but, since September, the neighbourhood peace and the safety of residents has been put at risk. Residents’ driveways have often been blocked, access by car or on foot is often disrupted by lorries and the size, noise and weight of these lorries mean that there is considerable concern about the health and safety of the residents. This situation needs to be addressed urgently ‘’
Cllr Mark Stocks adds ‘’ I completely support the residents in Lower Peover and their concerns regarding access to the new housing development in Lower Peover. The council should be taking enforcement action against the developer and ensuring access to the site is via Middlewich Road only. the council should with immediate effect put a stop notice on the site until the completion of the new access. It is unacceptable to use Holly Tree Drive and Birchwood Drive to access site it both dangerous an unsafe for all residents’’
In the early hours of Sunday 11th October two separate assaults occurred within DB’s Night Club, Winsford.
A 20 year old male was punched to the face and knocked to the floor. A 35 year old male was arrested and later charged with a section 39 assault offence and been bailed to appear at court on 26th November 2015.
In a separate incident a 20 year old female was assaulted by 3 females and sustained minor injuries. The police are investigating this incident to identify the offenders.
May I remind people that violence within licenced premises will not be tolerated and we will be seeking pub watch bans for all licenced premises and exclusion orders within the Winsford area for those responsible once court proceedings have been dealt with preventing those entering licenced premises for a set period of time.
We have had a number of reports of graffiti being sprayed on building and street furniture throughout the Winsford area particularly around Wharton Estate and Weaver Park Way. The tag appears to be “WYF” which we believe standards for Wharton Youth Firm. These tags are unsightly and damage the area. If anyone has any information to the identity of the offenders for this damage please contact the Police on 101 or CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111.
This past week we have had reports of two purses being stolen in separate incidents in Northwich Town centre on Thursday 15th October. One occurred near to the Halifax and one near to Age Concerns both were elderly victims.
Please look out for the elderly community if you see anyone acting suspicious near to elderly people in the town go over and challenge them, you may prevent a crime being committed. A typical MO is to distract the victim whilst another person put their hand into a victim’s bag or coat pocket.
Autumn Safety Tips
Pedal Cyclist have you got your lights and high visibility clothing?
The dark mornings and nights are upon us and you should be considering your safety if you use a bicycle to commute particularly on the main arterial routes to work. Please ensure you check your bikes and equipment over and ensure you can be seen. You don’t want to be a statistic!
Don’t Help Opportunists Make You A Victim of Crime
Winter will soon be upon us, dark mornings and frosty windscreens. Cars left running on the drive defrosting whilst the owners sit in the warm enjoying breakfast before leaving the house to find their lovely warm defrosted car Gone!!!
Make Your Home Appear Occupied Whilst You Are Out
One of the best deterrents to burglary is somebody being in the house. Even if there isn’t anybody at home, there are lots of things you can do to give the impression that the house is occupied. Draw the curtains and leave a light on in the house when you go out in the evening.
If you are leaving the house unoccupied overnight or for a longer period, install timers which switch lights or radios on and off automatically. Make sure that milk bottles and parcels are not left on the doorstep and that letters and newspapers are not left in the letterbox. Ask a neighbour or relative to regularly clear the doorstep and letterbox. You could also encourage someone to park on your drive while you are away. Burglary dwelling offences are at the lowest for many years with your support we can keep it that way.
