Good Friday Balls!

  If you’ve ever lived in Winsford and you’re of a certain age, you’ll probably remember receiving a Good Friday ball at Eastertime.   This old Winsford tradition originated in the early years of the last century when workers used to take home balls used in salt production, paint them and give them to their children on Good Friday.

Since the beginning of last year your Town Council has been working on a Neighbourhood Plan for Winsford. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of Winsford, along with policies on where new development should go, what sort of social and leisure facilities need to be provided and what improvements are needed in the town. The aim is to make Winsford a better place to live, work and visit.
 
Many local people have been involved in producing the Plan and have given the Town Council great ideas and useful comments. We have now produced a full Neighbourhood Plan which at a meeting on 15th April the Town Council  agreed to pass to Cheshire West and Chester Council to check that it complies with the emerging Local Plan and other Strategic Planning documents. The Plan was passed to CWAC on 15th July. Cheshire West and Chester Council have publicised the Plan and the deadline for representations has now passed. You can view the Plan, supporting documents and all submitted comments on the consultation portal of the Cheshire West and Chester council website www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk
 
At its meeting on Monday 21st October, the Town Council considered representations received during the publication stage and decided that the Neighbourhood Plan be allowed to go forward to independent examination. If the plan 'passes' the examination a referendum will be held in which all registered electors in Winsford will have the opportunity to vote for or against the plan.
 
Cheshire West and Chester Council has appointed Dr Charles Mynors FRTPI, FRICS, IHBC, Barrister as independent examiner of the Plan. On reviewing the content of the proposed Winsford Neighbourhood Plan and the representations received as part of the publication process, Dr Mynors has decided to hold a public hearing. The purpose of the hearing will be to allow the examiner to hear oral evidence from invited participants to assist with his examination of whether the Winsford Neighbourhood Plan has met the required Basic Conditions and other legal requirements. The public are welcome to attend the hearing, but discussion will be restricted to the invited participants.
 
The hearing will take place at Winsford Lifestyle Centre from Wednesday 15th January to Thursday 16th January 2014 (extending to Friday 17th January only if needed)
