Planning farce

Having been made aware of the retrospective planning application that has been submitted on the plot of land (Case number 20/3462M) I am utterly appalled to learn that if you wish to object to the planning application you must provide your personal details, most importantly your address.

I have spoken to in excess of 30 friends and family; all Knutsford residents that in spite of strongly objecting against the plans, will NOT be completing and submitting an objection for fear of repercussions. 

This is a totally outdated system that does not allow for residents to voice their opinions and concerns.

A system that allows for the thoughts and opinions of those effected without concerns of the potential impact this could have must be considered.

Praise for MP and councillor

I am very pleased to see our MP, Esther McVey, ask a question in the House with regards to the ongoing illegal encampment in Mobberley.

The local Councillor, Charlotte Leach and Ms McVey have been extremely pro-active during this awful situation and a true example of successful public representatives.
