In discussions about planned developments in Sandbach Sam Corcoran commented
I recognise that, because of past under delivery more houses are needed to satisfy the five year housing land supply requirement. More importantly there is a looming crisis in Sandbach over primary school places. Houses are already under construction on the Fodens sites, Hind Heath Road, Hassall Road, with more to come on Abbeyfields and Congleton Road. Yet the primary schools are already full. We need a new primary school. The only site that gives a primary school is the Yeowood Farm site in Ettiley Heath for 800 houses. Ettiley Heath is the best location for a new school. CEC currently pays £20,000 a year for a school bus from Ettiley Heath to Wheelock and lots more houses are being built on the nearby Fodens site.
