What's New page
Station Road Nursery Site - new Planning Application
A Planning Application (ref 17/01729/FUL) has been submitted to Cheshire West & Chester Council for 17 dwellings of various sizes on the plot which used to be the Nursery / Garden Centre, and was discussed during the Parish Council Meeting and its AGM on 16. May. About 17 members of the public were in attendance to voice their opinions about the proposed development.
This follows a promotion last year of "Hazlehurst Close", which was discussed at a public meeting on 3. November 2016, and received a very negative reception from the 70 or so residents who attended. For continuity, more details of the planning application are on our "Hazlehurst" page, though this name does not appear in the formal application.
|Groundwork / Woodland Trust
The meeting with Neil Oxley (site manager for the Woodland Trust) will take place at 13:00 on Thursday 22. June at Thorn Wood. It is hoped that we can resolve a number of queries and set up a volunteer group to take on the management of Hazel Pear Wood under the guidance of the Woodland Trust. Anyone interested in getting involved is welcome to come along on the 22. June or register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposed tasks and dates for working parties will circulated in due course.
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
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO)

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".
