Planning - update
Beechmoor Nurseries application for assisted living development has been refused
Christleton Hall Development (former Law College) – amended application submitted
The Parish Council has submitted their objections to the amended proposals to the planning application as follows:
Christleton Parish Council has considered the revisions to these planning applications submitted on 29 January 2018. It does not believe that these revisions address the objections previously submitted. In particular The Applicant still has not demonstrated that there is no alternative Educational or Employment use for the site. The Parish Council is of the view that any development outside the existing footprints and envelopes is inappropriate development in the Green Belt and the changes to the scheme The Applicant's proposals for fewer but larger (and therefore more expensive) houses make the scheme even more inappropriate as a way to meet housing needs in Christleton.
Christleton Parish Council therefore continues to object to these applications on the same basis as its previous submission. Should planning permission be granted, Christleton Parish Council requests that the same Conditions and s106 Agreements specified in its previous Objections be sought.
Update on Christleton Traffic Proposals and Road Safety
Christleton Village Surveys

A55 BRIDGE OVER A41 – NOISE - following the intervention of the Parish Council with Highways England this matter has now been resolved: the road repaired and the noise has gone.
King George's Field - Little Heath Playing Area
Unfortunately it has come to the notice of the Parish Council that the wooden swan sculpture at Little Heath Play area is rotten, so it has been removed for safety reasons. Over the course of the next few months the Council will look for an alternative feature to replace the swan.
