Cheshire East Council introduce public transport scheme for rural villages
Nantwich News has published details of a public transport scheme being introduced by Cheshire East Council to support rural villages. It says that two 16-seat accessible vehicles will be operating from 7am-9pm, which would allow for journeys to work and education, along with healthcare, shopping and leisure.
The service will be available to all residents on a fare-paying basis.
The new service will use an app-based booking system, similar to one used in urban areas by major bus companies and transport authorities. Subject to funding being confirmed, the new service is expected to be up and running by Tuesday June 1.

New action group formed
Communities Against Rural Industrial Expansion
Many residents have raised great concerns about the huge concrete plant which has been built next to Wrenbury Station without planning permission. There is an action committee that is doing its best to fight this application, via contact with Cheshire East Council, Councillors, and our MP.
The group is called CARIE – Communities Against Rural Industrial Expansion.
If you have concerns about his development that you have not already submitted to Cheshire East Council, or have examples of the impact on your lives, please email these to the CARIE team using the button below or the link at the top of this page. Thank you.

You may think things have gone quiet recently but the team have been busy drawing up draft versions of the various sections of the Neighbourhood Plan. As soon as the plan takes shape a little more, we'll put more details here.
In the meantime, please check our appeal for Green Space nominations on the welcome page.
a Great Success!
On a cold, damp, dark winter evening over 90 people made the effort to come and see us to learn more about the Newhall Neighbourhood Plan. Residents were hugely supportive and positive about the plan, and very interested in the survey results.
