|Groundwork / Woodland Trust - Cliff Mallows writes :
Following meetings with Neil Oxley of the Woodland Trust, we have arranged two working days at Hazel Pear Wood.
Having had one successful Balsam Bashing day it was agreed we could do with one more session to try and limit the spread of this invasive plant, and it has been agreed to meet at Hazel Pear Wood on Wednesday 19th July again at 10.00 to tackle two specific areas.
The second event is a coppicing day on Tuesday 19th September again from 10.00 to 4.00. Neil will be providing tools on this occasion (all work is undertaken with hand tools - no chainsaws) and he will also be on hand to offer advice/guidance.
On both days we will meet at Hazel Pear Wood and if you are available all day, do bring your own lunch and drinks or if you can only spare a few hours you will be most welcome.
For these two days or any future working events please register as a volunteer with the Woodland Trust by going to their website and returning the volunteer registration forms to Neil. This provides you with appropriate insurance cover.
If you have any queries or would like like to be added to the local database for updates please contact Cliff Mallows on firstname.lastname@example.org
Previously, a Planning Application (ref 17/01729/FUL) was 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This Application was withdrawn on 20. June, but a new Planning Statement appeared on the CWAC website on the same day. This Statement makes some startling assertions about the Parish Council's role in the matter, and refers to discussions taking place (which didn't) and opinions being expressed (which weren't) before the Application was submitted. It's the Parish Council's long-standing principle not to enter into pre-Application discussions with, or express opinions to, developers, for precisely the reason that any such remarks could be taken out of context. The Parish Council's formal responses to CWAC on this and other Applications are the only documents having any legal standing.
This Application 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.
