Welcome to the May edition of the Moston Parish Council Newsletter. This month was the AGM of the parish. The Chair and Vice Chair of the council were elected at the meeting. Councillor Andy Roscoe was elected to the Chair and Councillor Dave Nixon elected as Vice Chair.

It was decided at the meeting that this years project to improve the look of the parish,  would be to  continue to offer free plants to residents. In 2020 we offered free trees to residents. This year it was decided that the offer would be hedgerow plants. Further details of the scheme will be published later in the year.

In April, Moston Parish Council, at Cheshire East’s  Strategic Planning Committee, spoke against Taylor Wimpey’s application to a change of conditions, relating to their site at Glebe Farm, Warmingham Lane. If the application had been granted it would have meant a large increase in the number of HGVs using our lanes. I am pleased to say that the application was refused and, barring an appeal, Taylor Wimpey must now bring all construction vehicles into the site via Booth Lane.

Cheshire East have published a consultation paper about possible boundary changes to parish and towns, within the county. The main change to Moston would be that the Albion Lock development would be incorporated into Sandbach and the developments at the Middlewich end of Warmingham Lane would be ceded to Middlewich, allowing Moston to revert to a mainly rural parish. If these changes occur they will take place before the next council elections.

May’s Parish Council meeting was the last to be held via zoom, as the government have decided that physical meeting must resume after the 7th  May. Therefore, because Warmingham Village Hall, our usual meeting venue, will not be open before our June meeting, our next Parish Council meeting will be on Wednesday 14th July at 7:30pm and that all subsequent meetings will be held on the 2nd  Wednesday of each month in the main hall. A full list of dates are available on the website .

Once again, this month, you have the chance to visit one of our local gardens under the National Open Garden Scheme. See the link below. The money raised from the scheme benefits a number of charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support and Parkinson’s Uk.
