As communicated in our last update, the council are hosting a strategic planning meeting on Wednesday 1 May 2013 of which some of the committee will attend.
The meeting is to discuss the inclusion of the Wychwood Village development, as well as a number of other key sites all within the area of Weston & Basford, within a public consultation for then consideration within the formal local plan.
The meeting allows for select individuals to speak for or against the developments, of which our very own chairman, Andy Bailey, will be speaking in objection, on behalf of the Wychwood Village / CW2 community (3 minutes).
We also have the support of John Cornell, vice-chairman of the parish council and ex-senior planner who will also speak against all the developments within the parish, including Wychwood Village (3 minutes).
We also hope to have our Ward councillor Janet Clowes speak for the allocated 5 minutes, subject to availability (due to other meetings she must attend).
The meeting is also open to the public, so we would urge you to attend if possible, giving maximum impact, showing we are organised and putting a clear point across that we will not let this happen!
There is also an opportunity for you to speak as an “objector”; you will need to book your slot with the council by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting is at 10.30am Wednesday 1 May 2013 at Crewe Alexandra Football Club (The Carlsberg Lounge), Gresty Road, Crewe, CW2 6EB.
