Plans must be right for now and for future generations
HENRY Brooks believes his estate management company is perfectly positioned to help Knutsford grow in the future.
“Tatton Estate is not pro development but does recognise that a clear strategy must be in place to address the challenges that the next 20 years will bring,” he told the Guardian.
“We must review green belt allocation if we are to help ensure a sustainable future for Knutsford and its future generation and we are committed to preservation and restoration and are passionate advocates of sustainable development.
“The estate provides more facilities for Knutsford than any other private party.
“We’ve started thinking about how development of Knutsford could work and are keen to get input from all stakeholders to make sure that everything we do is in the best interests of the long term sustainability of the town.
“We believe that what is good for the community will be good for our interests.
“This is central to all that we do.
“Our track record in the town and commitment to sustainable development makes us ideally placed to deliver the amenities required while safeguarding the unique status of the town.
“The Estate commits to not participating and opposing development that is not appropriate, irrespective of financial advantage.
“We commit to working to deliver what is feasibly in the best long-term interests of the community and future generations, even if it takes longer and may be expensive.
“The Estate looks wherever possible to retain ownership or at least control to ensure management and stewardship can continue indefinitely.”
