Even though Cheshire East Council claims to have a strategic housing plan that meets the government's target of a five year supply of housing, a developer is seeking to build over a hundred new houses on Saltersford Farm. These will be in addition to the over 400 already in the pipeline for the village. The planned development is on a greenfield site at the edge of the Village.
Local Labour member, Bill Armstrong, has started a petition to protest against this latest plan. You can sign the petition here
The local infrastructure in Holmes Chapel is already under pressure and 100 more houses can only make matters worse. Residents are already campaigning to ensure that the growth in population is matched by the provision of leisure and sporting facilities which are now under threat.
