April 2022 Parish News.
Planning is underway for this year’s Community Day on the 2nd May 2022. This event is an excellent way for local voluntary organisations to meet residents and raise fund for their causes. If any charitable organisation would like to reserve a stall for the event, please contact the clerk to the Parish Council to register your interest Tina Rogers-Smith via email@example.com.
The Parish Council is consulted on planning applications. If you have an opinion on an application, please let the clerk or councillors know as soon as possible, within the 21-day consultation period.
HS2 Hybrid Bill
Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council, Croft Parish Council and CADRAG are cooperating to create a response to the HS2 Environment consultation which has a deadline of the 31st March 2022. The amalgamated group has named itself Golborne Link Action Group (GLAG) and will work in the future to petition the hybrid bill as it passes through the houses of parliament. We have already written to the five MPs whose constituencies will be affected by this rail line, to seek their support and cooperation.
Glazebury Traffic Group
At a recent meeting of this group, members of the Parish Council were made aware that the average speed camera system was being planned for installation on roads through Glazebury. No official date or costing for this system has been given either by the Police and Crime Commissioner or Warrington Borough Council.
Culcheth Play Area
Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council are committed to partially funding the replacement of the play area on the village green. The Parish Council has set aside funds from its budget to support the development of this important community space. We are currently waiting for proposed plans and details about available funding from Warrington Borough Council.
M62 Junction 11 Service Area
Culcheth and Glazebury and Croft Parish Councils are opposing the proposed Junction 11 motorway service area on the M62. Since Warrington Borough Council decided not to defend their planning decision at the upcoming appeal. Hopefully the joint input of the Parish councils at the planning appeal will manage to stop this needless development of the green belt.
A fundraising evening for Culcheth Library is being organised by Friends of Culcheth Library on Friday 8th April at 7:30pm in the Village Club. Tickets are £10 and are available from the library.
