Planners should listen to people
IT IS not without expectation that the current planning objections to thousands of homes are erupting all over the South Cheshire area.
The premise that 6,038 houses should be built in the area may seem mathematically targetable by East Cheshire Council but they are counter to the imaginings of the populace.
It is despite the council that the area is attractive both scenically and socially.
There is no possible benefit to any development of houses in the area of having thousands more dwellings built in its midst.

It is an area where, if it were not for the efforts of children, and the social imperative for successful offspring, any children that did not get to university would be trapped in a jobs ghetto where A-levels might possibly give them access to menial occupation.
Similarly, the possibilities for mature occupation are also inscrutable, suggesting these housing numbers are statistics gleaned from other places with different demographics.
In respect of roads, Alsager, for one, is not ready for another 1,500 cars and neither are the majority of roads that feed into it.
As the campaigners at Rope Lane observed their public amenity is already up to capacity.
No jobs and declining services sounds like a recipe for disaster.
But it is the 6,038 properties East Cheshire is charged with building that is the single oddest factor.
It is such a distinct, singular figure and not arrived at accidentally. The very fact there is a fraction of a significant number points to an allocation and not a requirement.
The council seems unable to communicate any sense of its commitment to the various people protesting over the proposed build.
The running mates of a central authority obviously have little knowledge or comprehension of local situations and only address their own assets, dealing with them as it sees fit, rather than communities which are proud in their creation and reacting in total disbelief.
It is about time that the people of East Cheshire reclaimed their streets.
If they do not they can expect no help from their representatives, who all seem so transfixed by their self-importance and their conceit that they are forming the future in vacuums of self-delusion.
