LIBERAL Democrat Parliamentary hopeful Ryan Bate has issued a final call for residents to make their voices heard on Warrington’s Local Plan.
Cllr Bate , the Lib Dem prospective Parliamentary candidate for Warrington South, urges people to contribute to the consulation on the Local Plan and the Local Transport Plan before the deadline on June 17.
He said: “Ever since the Council released their plans in March, I have campaigned tirelessly alongside local residents to make sure that the people of South Warrington have their voices heard.
“The 7000 houses and new logistics sites in South Warrington will transform our area for the worst. The plan will result in more traffic congestion, declining air quality and a loss of both our green spaces and the unique character of our villages.
“There is no appetite for this level of development. We must have a plan for Warrington which balances our aspirations for tomorrow with the needs of people today. If you too want a better plan for Warrington’s future then it is essential that you respond to the Local Plan consultation before 5pm on 17th June.”
“By reducing the plan period and arguing for a lower housing target for Warrington, I believe we can protect our Green Belt whilst also ensuring that the regeneration and repopulation of the town centre is delivered. I have advanced these counter-proposals as part of my contribution to the South Warrington Parish Councils’ liaison group and also through my role as the chair of ‘Rethinking South Warrington’s Future’ ”.
People can respond to the Local Plan consultation by going to www.warrington.gov.uk/localplan or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
