Community Engagement

Tonight I went along to Woodhouses park homes committee at Helsby Methodist Church, to talk to the residents of the park about the various activities happening in Frodsham, from the 19 wind turbines that are being erected on Frodsham marshes, the Household waste recycling consultation and the neighbourhood plan.

I encouraged the residents to join in and help shape important policies that will be taken into account when developers wish to develop here in Frodsham; which led me back on to the waste consultation currently taking place, where the Frodsham tip will reduce the number of days it is open, from 7 to 5 days, remaining open on weekends but depending on what comes from the consultation, which days will be chosen to close the site on, should it be a Monday and or Thursday, the busy market day? That is something we will learn from the results of this consultation. Of which they agreed me, the idea of the tip would potentially, be better placed on Mill Lane, the redundant land opposite Gleaves Garden Centre. However as Councillor Andrew Dawson has stressed, the current placement of the tip is on temporary planning permission and has been for some time, needing renewal every 5 years. This is an idea that would:

1. help to alleviate traffic for the tip and

2. free up more parking spaces at Frodsham Train Station, that would aid in the requirement of additional space for the soon to come Halton Curve

These are all things that the residents of Frodsham can help ask for by lobbying Cheshire West and Chester and putting it on paper via the Neighbourhood Plan. So if you wish to get involved with the Neighbourhood Plan then please Email Gill Hesketh, for the latest news and meetings:
