Tory outrage over borough council’s “unfair” local plan


ANGER over the proposals put forward in Warrington Borough Council’s draft local plan continues to grow.
Warrington Conservatives have added their voice to those promising to fight the proposals all the way.
Conservative spokesman Cllr Andy Carter (pictured) said: “Residents consistently tell us that they don’t want high levels of development in the green belt and sadly Labour’s plan is doing exactly that. Seven thousand new homes show they just haven’t listened.
“People living in villages such as Appleton Thorn, Stretton, Higher Walton and Grappenhall all face the prospect of seeing their rural communities changed beyond all recognition not just from the prospect of new homes being built but also from proposed development of massive logistics parks.
“The addition of 450 new homes in a village like Lymm will impact on the provision of healthcare, school places and roads. We can’t simply build new homes without addressing the very real infrastructure issues and many of our services are already at breaking point. Lymm High is already unable to accommodate all the children who live in the village.
“These proposals don’t take sufficient account of land availability elsewhere and whether the needs are met more appropriately in other areas -they’re unfairly skewed towards land south of the Ship Canal.
“Warrington Conservatives will oppose the green belt plans at every stage. We’re already working with advisers and parish councils to look at ways to get the borough council to change course.”
