THE news that Cheshire West and Chester council’s conservation officer, John Healey, is against the development of the St Chad’s Conservation area, Guardian, September 18, is very welcome.
However, it is incorrect for the Guardian to state that Clr Armstrong and Clr Burns ‘are leading the fight against the scheme’.
Clr Burns voted for all the proposed development sites, as set out in the Winsford Development plan, including the conservation area proposal, while Clr Armstrong expressed total approval for the whole Winsford Plan.
They only expressed their concern for the conservation area, when they realised the strength of feeling against this and other planning proposals from the residents of the Dene ward.
The sudden interest of Messrs Burns and Armstrong in this has fooled nobody, least of all the campaigners against this particular development.
