Help save our Countryside

Cheshire East Council has to put together a new local plan and within that plan it has to be demonstrated that there is both a 5 year supply of building land for new housing. Because of this, housing developers are asking for very large areas of the Countryside that surrounds Crewe and Nantwich be made available for building land. These areas include Shavington, Haslington, Wybunbury, Willaston, Weston, Wistaston, Coppenhall, and Bradfield Green. Within the Leighton ward, developers want to build 1600 new houses on an area so large, it practically wipes out all the countryside in that area, and when the developers have finished building in these areas, they will start looking for more parts of the countryside they can ruin.                                                                                                                                                            To be able to save the countryside, the Council needs to be able to demonstrate that local residents do not want building in the green gap or local countryside.                                                                                                                    From August 31st to October 1st the Council will be consulting the people of Crewe for their view on the local plan. Therefore I am asking the people of Crewe to help save our Countryside by responding to the consultation and calling for the Green Gap to be maintained and for the countryside within and around the Leighton ward to be declared Green Gap. If we do not respond to the consultation it is very likely our countryside will be lost forever.
