Blythe Valley Update
Posted 18th May 2015
Comment on this
Ward councilors including Ken Hawkins met today with representatives from IM Properties, the the new owner of Blythe Valley Business Park, and Turley Planning. IM Properties intend to submit a planning application in 4/6 months time for a mixed commercial/residential development. Numbers have now risen to 700 new dwellings plus residential care building for about 200 residents. There will be associated commercial premises.
Although within the parish boundary the development is away from the village, but ideas include having a cycle path between both locations. A great deal of work is to be done to accommodate access/egress from the site and even though the planning application is expected later this year any actual development is over two years away at the least.

Mount Dairy Farm
In response to a request from the Parish Council, Bloor Homes have produced a ‘drainage strategy leaflet’ to explain how the water in Mount Brook is to be managed in times of flood. The leaflets will be distributed to residents in Coppice Close, Coppice Walk, Willow Drive, the lower end of Saxon Wood Road, Heron Close, Brookside and the houses that back on to the River Blythe in Cheswick Way. View leaflet (PDF 6.2MB) Note this is a large download. Read more on the parish council website
Election of Parish Councillors
Posted 17th April 2015
Comment on this
As previously reported the number of Cheswick Green parish councillors
has been increased from five to seven. Normally councillors should be re elected every four years but as only seven eligible candidates have come forward by close of nominations it is an uncontested election as it was four years ago. The upcoming election of parish councillors was widely publicised so it is perhaps a little disappointing that more residents have not shown an interest. It is however very good news that all our new councillors live in Cheswick Green. We wish them all the best.

PARTY IN THE PARK 2015
Hi all, after a lengthy discussion tonight, I am pleased to advise that it has been unanimously decided that Party in the Park 2015 just has to happen!!.
Although the decision has been made to proceed, as previously mentioned we really do need more volunteers to help set up, run the party and help take it all down and clear up at the end of the night. This is a very important event for our village and something that pulls the community together, something that we feel must continue. So if you can help please let us know here at info@cgra.org.uk or of course come down to the CGRA meeting on the 1st Wednesday of each month.
In the meantime - get those diaries out .....the date of this years party in the park is 4th July 2015.
