Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

Kingsley Parish Council along with the councils of Acton bridge and Crowton have been actively engaged over the last two years in discussions with Cheshire West and Chester Planning Department to bring to an end quarry operations at this site.

There has been no sand extraction nor importation of infill material  to the quarry since 2018.

Work is continuing on the restoration of the site by the quarry operators and preparations to return it to pastureland. In a recent visit, councillors have observed the re-grading of the fields and landscape reformation. 

   

The offices have now been demolished. The weighbridge is sold and will be removed from the site this coming weekend. Some 300 metres of the tarmac entrance road up to the B5153 will be lifted and removed from next Tuesday 2nd December onwards; this will entail some 54 lorry loads & 108 movements. They are designated for a site some 13 miles away so local residents need to be aware of this temporary activity.

This work will effectively close off the site to any further access from the Crowton entrance.

Daffodil Bulb Planting

Our Ward Councillor Hugo Deynem, is looking to support funding for local communities to plant daffodils bulbs in their communities. The Parish Council is aware that we have had a number of bulb planting events in the past and have lovely displays at the bottom of Brookside and up Hollow Lane past St John's church.

We now have the opportunity to request sacks of 500 bulbs (enough for 50sqm) at a minimal cost to the Parish Council. The requirement for the support from our Borough Councillor is that local people, schools, youth groups, etc; are involved in the planting. At this time, there are no designated areas but suggestions are around the edge of the playing field and verges around the village. Villagers should be aware that Streetscene will not cut the verges until the foliage on the daffodils have died down.

The Parish Council would welcome your comments as to whether we should take up this offer. You can comment via the village Facebook page, or direct to the Parish Clerk via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We need to make applications by January 2020, and all bulbs need to be planted by March 2020.

 

Dear Residents,

We thought it appropriate to update you on the progress of the Higher Heyes Development after a contractor was found to be working on the site during the previous week and caused several questions to local parish councillors. The latest information we have is that the planning conditions placed on the site by Cheshire West and Chester Planning Department are nearing completion and could soon be ‘signed off’ by the appropriate authorities.

As I’m sure you are aware, Kingsley residents, and people with connections to Kingsley have first ‘claim’ on the purchase of the affordable housing that will be built on the site and we will ensure that we provide information about purchasing the properties as soon as it becomes available. We can also now confirm that should the affordable house not be sold; they will be offered through an “affordable rent” scheme.

This is a brief update from the Kingsley Parish Council (KPC) on what has occurred recently regarding the Kingsley Neighbourhood plan.

Over the last 18 months, the development of the plan has been undertaken by an independent steering group, Kingsley Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group (KNPSG), comprised of volunteers from the village and representatives of KPC. The steering group was provided with wide powers, delegated by KPC as the ‘Qualifying Body’ to complete this task, with the appointment of a independent Chairman to complete the plan.

I have been asked by the Parish Council to advise you of the following Planning Applications
