South Warrington Parish Councils are working together to employ a Planning Consultant ready for when the revised Local Plan PDO is issued (Autumn/Winter 2018) so as to provide a unified response. None of the South Warrington Parish Councils support the proposal to build 6000 homes in South Warrington on green belt land. The group is convinced that the housing figures need to be challenged and that necessary housing can be built on Brownfield sites.
The Working Group, consisting of representatives of 7 South Warrington Parish Councils, has met 4 times already and has now selected a Planning Consultant to assist. The aim is to have all the background information scrutinized and be ready for and prepared to fight the revised proposals when they are issued. Local action groups are engaged and on board with this initiative, which is being led by Grappenhall & Thelwall Parish Council.
