Great news!

Sibelco UK have eventually had no option but to acknowledge that their current planning application 16/4724W is not only flawed, but would not stand up to scrutiny should we progress down the judicial review route, which is exactly where matters were rapidly heading.

Sibelco UK will now have to begin the entire process all over again with two fresh planning applications, one to Cheshire East and one to Cheshire West and Chester councils.

Public consultation events are now to be held at

Allostock Village Hall on 14th Feb


Cranage Village Hall on 17th Feb.

We will cascade further detail as we get it and rest assured we will be requesting that all of the previous objections submitted should continue to be recognised and that if that is not possible that every objector is written  to personally to advise if and how the previous objections should now be re-submitted.

I sincerely hope that these new planning applications will be handled correctly by the planning departments in both council’s in a significantly more fair, transparent and professional manner than before. and that cranage parish council reflect on their past actions in supporting this flawed application and apply due diligence to the new application, those that voted no objection should hang their heads in shame
