The council are again thrown into turmoil  with the sudden resignation of Allister Townson this week ,

This is the third resignation this year!

In his resignation letter to the clerk he says he can no longer support the PC, but doesn’t expand on it  more.

Also at this time it should be pointed out that at present we have two councillors effectively gagged from taking active part over the sibelco application for a sand quarry, this has been ongoing  now for months.

this all stems from the monitoring officer at Cheshire east and his  decision that they acted in breach of the code over declarations of interest. it meant that they could not take part or vote on any part of the application.

Both these councillors back the majority view of the residents in opposing the application. Cheshire east received over 300 objections.  And this matter is  now the subject of a judicial review brought by one of the PC councillors to be heard shortly in the high court .
