Chairman’s Statement

As I prepare the statement for my presentation at the Strategic Planning Board on Wednesday I thought I would drop you all a brief progress update.

Firstly, the legal, planning and environmental sub-groups are paying great dividends and there is some good progress being made in all areas. We have some very committed individuals who are professionals in their respective fields, also giving up their free time to work with the committee in order to prepare for the planning stage.

We have formed a social events and fundraising group who are already planning a community get together on May 5th and a family fun day on the 27th May, more details coming very soon.

This week both myself and the groups Vice Chairman Trevor Sandry went to see Edward Timpson MP at his offices and have secured his full support against Haddon’s proposed development. This support involves him writing a letter of objection to Cheshire East, a link to our group on his parliamentary website and public statements opposing the development of 900+ houses on Gorstyhill Golf course.

The fight will continue on Wednesday this week at the Strategic Planning Board meeting to publicly state our objection and your support would be more than welcome – 10.30am at Crewe Alex Football Club.

There is so much going on at the moment, and whilst there may be times where it seems very quiet, just remember we are still working hard to serve the community so stay alert and ready to act once a planning application is submitted or consultation period begins. We are confident that with your support, we can easily gain a few thousand objections that the council simply won’t be able to ignore.

Thank you all for your continued support and together we will win this!
Andy Bailey – Chairman CW2 Community Group
