2 – 4 Chester Road Decision

2 – 4 Chester Road Decision

Our campaigning was to no avail. On Thursday 9 February the Planning Committee voted 5 to 2 (with several abstentions) in favour of the Renaker proposals.

 

Many thanks to the 15 Forum members who joined the earlier Committee site visit – in the snow – and the 9 who attended the Committee meeting this afternoon.

 

And very many thanks to Sarah Ramsbottom and Cllr Joan Davies who both addressed the Committee passionately, articulately and with unanswerable arguments against the plans.

 

Here ‘s some recent publicity on the issues:
