Pictured with Peter Wainwright of the ‘Hands off Wistaston’ action group and former councillor Tom Dunlop, Mr Heald said:  “There has been a chronic shortage of decent homes for many years.

“Everyone agrees that something needs to be done, but maximum use should be made of ‘brownfield’ sites while green spaces must be strongly protected.

Resurfacing work on the A500 has produced an unexpected spin off for a local Scout camp.

More than 300 tonnes of planings – the top surface removed from the worn-out road – were recycled to improve the South West Cheshire District Scouts camp site at Milldale, Blakenhall.

The Scouts had asked for the planings for a new car park, but as well as delivering them to the site, Cheshire East Highways contractor Ringway Jacobs and surfacing firm Eurovia offered to lay a 350 metre track through the camp site, and provided labour and plant free of charge.
