Neston and Tarporley present future development plans

The Parish Councils of Neston and Tarporley have completed their neighbourhood plans and submitted them to Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Both areas have consulted local people when putting together the plans.

Councillor Brian Clarke who is the cabinet member for economic development and infrastructure said:

“The neighbourhood plans are based on extensive research and have already been influenced by significant engagement with the local community. Both have now been submitted to ourselves and we will gather additional comments from local people during the publication stage.”

Businesses and residents will be given a chance to view the plans in their entirety and make further comments. These comments will be collated and examined by independent examiners. People have until the 23rd of November to submit their comments.

Both sets of plans are accessible to the public and available to be viewed or downloaded online. In addition, the Tarporley plan can be seen at the town’s Council Offices, the Old Fire Station Chocolate Shop and the Winsford Centre. The Neston plan can be seen at Neston library and Neston Town Hall.

Both plans outline a lot of change for the towns, which means that construction firms and architects in Chester and the Wirral are going to be busy once they start to be put into action. For example, in Tarporley, 300 new homes have to be built before 2030. Identifying space within the boundaries of this small town without encroaching on green spaces and sites of historic or environmental importance is one of the challenges the planners will face.
