Westminster Park Residents’ Association is urging people in south Chester, Wrexham and Flintshire to view and comment on the plans for the 1300+ housing development on the Wrexham Road in Chester which will be put on show on Wednesday 19th October 2016.
“This development will have a major impact on existing and future residents in this area and we must ensure that it includes all of the housing and facilities that are important for us,” said Pauline Brown, chair of the Westminster Park Residents’ Association.
The plans already feature a new school and health centre that will serve the whole area and Pauline is sure that local people will have other ideas about what should be built. “You may want a community hub, housing for the elderly, a nature reserve, a play area for your children, an outdoor gym to improve your fitness… there are countless possibilities, but obviously no guarantees.”
“It is vital that local people participate in this consultation to ensure that the development is high quality and offers the right mix of housing and facilities to meet our needs for the future. At the exhibition we will have the chance to register and comment on the plans – it is really important for residents to do that.”
“We only have one chance to get this right. We urge all local people to go to the public consultation on Wednesday 19th October 2016 and let us at the Residents’ Association have your views and ideas. You can contact us through our website www.wp-ra.org.uk, find us on Facebook or
Twitter or write to us via our post box in the Al Dente deli at Westminster Park shops.”
“This is your chance to shape the future of our area for us and for our children – grasp it now,” she added.
The exhibition of the plans will be available to view from 2pm to 8pm at Lache Community Centre, Hawthorn Crescent, Lache, Chester. If people are not be able to attend, the plans will also be available to view on the website: www.wrexhamroadchester.co.uk from 19th October 2016. All comments on the plans should be received by the developers by Wednesday 26th October 2016.
