HS2 Parkgate and our villages - May 2019

This is a brief summary of the circumstances surrounding the plans by HS2 to build a new substation at Parkgate and the work of the combined parishes of Abbots Bromley, Hoar Cross and Newborough.

The aim from the start has been to understand the reasons why HS2 came to favour Parkgate as a power source, and preferably to move the infrastructure out of our area. Failing that, we felt that undergrounding the cables would have a less detrimental visual impact on the landscape in the long term.

Neighbourhood Development Plan Group meeting (Public Session)

Taking place on 6th June 2019 at 7pm in Church House
‘Come and Have Your Say’

Topic: ‘Progress update and the next steps’

It is imperative that public opinion is taken into account when producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).

The group are pleased to inform residents that a professional Consultant has been brought in to support the ongoing process of creating the parish NDP.

An initial review by the Consultant of the 2015-2018 evolving Draft Plan has detailed significant areas that will need to be improved upon. This is in accord with an earlier Independent Consultant report sanctioned by the Parish Council in 2018.

The programmed NDPG meeting for June 2019 will be used to discuss with residents the contents of the report, and the resulting recommendations. This is an opportunity to ask any unanswered questions that you may have; and also a chance help shape the key policies within the plan as we look to bring the consultant more fully onboard.

Please come along and contribute to these discussions.
