Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is calling for an application to be pulled from the Strategic Planning Board agenda on the 6/11/13 because the recommendations on it were made before the closure of the consultation period.
He said," Some of my constituents objected online on the Council website to the proposal to build 21 houses off Cheerbrook Road in Willaston. They were later told that the objections have been lost and they needed to resubmit them by the 4th of November. The recommendation to approve the application came out on the 29/10/13, almost a week BEFORE the consultation period ended. It is obvious that representations received after the 29/10/13 have not been taken into account before the recommendation was made. Unless this application is taken off the agenda it will make an absolute mockery of the consultation process and it is undemocratic because the views of local people clearly have not been taken into account. Cheshire East should be listening carefully to its residents and in this case they certainly have not done so."
