Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is asking for greater care to be taken with the online website representations from the public on planning applications. He said," Constituents of mine objected online on the Council website to the proposal to build 21 houses off Cheerbrook Road in Willaston. They have now been told that the objections have been lost and they need to resubmit them by the 4th of November. This is very inconvenient and the Council must find out how this has happened and ensure that it does not occur in the future."
Call to waive parking charges
Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester has asked Cheshire East Council (CEC) to support an initiative to encourage more visitors to our town centres.
He said," The Forum of Private Business is calling on Councils across the UK to lend their support to small companies by waiving parking charges on the first UK Small Business Saturday on December 7. I have asked CEC to support this imitative and they have responded by stating that they will investigate it.(See below) This date is a key Saturday on the run up to Christmas and it would be very beneficial to local traders if it could be made a 'Free Parking Saturday'. The retail trade in CEC have suffered a lot in recent years and there are still too many empty shops. This small initiative would encourage residents back into their town centres and help shops to have a viable and long term future."
