Most Cheshire East (CE) residents are punch drunk after being hit with unprecedented number of applications for new houses across the Borough. Amazingly the Conservative leadership of CE, after agreeing major incursions into the Borough's green belt and green gaps to build houses, are making further provision for 500 houses for the adjacent High Peak Council. In other words CE will be allowing 500 houses to be built in CE that High Peak don't want. Surely CE have had enough problems finding their own required 5 year supply of housing land without picking up the responsibilities of adjoining Councils as well?
But it gets worse. CE now has a memorandum of understanding with Stockport Council that includes an agreement by CE to use its “best endeavours” to secure a site for Stockport’s traveller community. CE have not yet made sufficient provision for its own traveller community so it beggars belief that CE want to also accommodate travellers from a neighbouring authority.
The political leaders of CE are treating their residents with utter contempt. They make grand statements about protecting the interests of local people but they are undermining them at every turn. Residents will be able to express their anger at the way they have been treated at the CE Council elections next year.
