The Countryside Code
Following some recent incidents, a gentle reminder to our residents that Public Rights Of Way are the only routes you should follow when out walking. A map showing all the PROWs in Acton Bridge is available from ABCA News editors or the Parish Council. Farmland is privately owned, so follow the Countryside Code, and keep dogs under close control, especially near livestock. Please remember that the countryside is our farmers' workplace, and their livelihood. Thank you!
You can read the Countryside Code on the Government website by clicking here, or download a PDF brochure and bookmark from gov.uk/government/publications/the-countryside-code.

Strawberry Lane update, April 2017...
Yet another Planning Application has been lodged with Cheshire West and Chester Council for this contentious Green Belt site, this time for one "affordable" house, but again (from our interpretation of the proposed site layout) with a clear possibility of expansion of the development later. Here is a link to our updated Strawberry Lane page. The amended Application is CWAC Ref. No: 16/05040/FUL and can be viewed by clicking on this link to the CWAC website - click on "Documents" tab, "View associated documents", and download them (the site layout etc are PDF files). After many submissions from concerned residents and the Parish Council, the previous Planning Application (15/01882/FUL) was REFUSED by Cheshire West and Chester Council. The Officer's Report has now been published online, on the CWAC website - click on "Documents" tab, "View associated documents", and then "Officer Report".

"Hazlehurst Close" proposed development, Station Road, Acton Bridge
A meeting was held in the Parish Rooms on Thursday 3. November 2016 at 7:30pm, with the full Parish Council and about 70 residents in attendance. A special page on the website provides discussion of the Hazlehurst Close proposals, and the Parish Council has published some provisional notes from the meeting, which you can read here. The developers have an updated website with a 2017 date, suggesting that they have not been discouraged (yet!).
