Revised Wrexham Road plan in WP pharmacy window


Take a look at revised Wrexham Road plans

The new layout for the estate to be built by Redrow and Taylor Wimpey on the Wrexham Road is on display in the window of Westminster Park pharmacy on Castlecroft Road. 

The developers’ latest plans request full planning permission to build 786 houses on Wrexham Road (nearly the same number as Westminster Park).  This is the first phase of a 1300 house development.

It seems likely that the plans will be considered by Cheshire West and Chester Council’s planning committee at their January 2019 meeting.

You have the opportunity to let the Council know your views now.  You may be concerned about the impact on traffic and surface drainage, the design and composition of housing (no bungalows for an ageing population), the land allocations for the school and open space and the provision of an ecological mitigation area which is bisected by Lache Lane.  

Make your views known. 

Copies of all plans can be viewed online or at Lache Library and you can comment on them in a variety of ways: by writing, emailing or commenting via the CWaC website.

Accessing the CWAC website to submit your comments is not very straightforward.  However, one of our members has provided step by step instructions which will help you navigate the CWaC website more easily.  The instructions can be found on our website – www.wp-ra.org.uk.  A paper copy is also available; please call 01244 677373 or email: sandymagilton@googlemail.com if you would like to receive one.

If you prefer to email your comments, send to: planning@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk or by post, write to:  Development Management, 4 Civic Way, Ellesmere Port CH65 0BE

It is most important that you copy your comments across all applications if you wish your views to be taken into account.
