Message from Cllr Ryan Bate via Grappenhall & Appleton Thorn Lib Dems
my latest update from WBC regarding the Rectory (received yesterday), I was told that the associates of the building have advised WBC that ongoing legal proceedings should now be concluded by the end of 2020 which should allow for the building to be sold and/or restored in early 2021. I know we’ve been given similar assurances before however, this is the most positive update I’ve received in my time as a Councillor. I will continue to monitor the situation and update the community as much as possible. Fingers crossed, with just a little more patience, we may finally get this blight on our village rectified.
