Wrexham Road latest – Council Announce Independent Consultation

| 1 Comment

Westminster Park residents are delighted that Cheshire West and Chester Council have announced their own independent consultation into the development of 1300 houses on Wrexham Road in Chester.

“It is great to see that our views on this huge development are being sought and we urge all residents and business leaders in Chester and Wrexham to look at the plans and put forward their opinions to the developers and the Council,” commented Pauline Brown, chair of the Westminster Park Residents’ Association.

“We have organised a public meeting at 8pm next Wednesday 26 October to be held at Westminster Park Community Centre to get our own feedback on the plans and give local people the opportunity to put forward their aspirations for this estate,” she continued.

“Taylor Wimpey and Redrow have extended their own consultation deadline to Wednesday 2 November which gives more time for people to examine the plans in detail and consider what they believe to be priorities in this new development.

“Obviously traffic will be top of the agenda, but there are also implications for primary education and health care provision too.

“This land is home to Great Crested Newts, barn owls and bats and many residents will be keen to know how these are going to be handled.

“Added to that, there is a listed mediaeval moated site and possible Roman remains – no doubt people will want to know that the developers will be dealing sensitively with these issues,” she said.

  1. As a long term resident of Rowcliffe Ave 48years. I am deeply saddened by the massive development proposed behind me. One mayjor concern I have is the boundary between us and the proposed houses behind. We were told at the consultation last night that our existing boundary hedge/fencing will also become the boundary to the new builds. I personally would like to keep our boundary as ours and not have to rely on the new house owners to maintain by hedge or Not as the case may well be. I would like to propose that the developers erect fencing of something similar foe the new developments boundary
