The Boundary Commission’s draft recommendations for the Boundary Review have done away with Hatton, Stretton and Walton as a Borough Council Ward. Under the proposals we will become part of Appleton. Hatton, Stretton and Walton Parish Councils met with Paul Kennedy (Borough Councillor) to discuss the implications. Hatton PC will be objecting as we feel that the views/needs and services of our rural village will be marginalised and that our own dedicated Borough Councillor would be able to ensure our voices are heard! A joint objection from the all 3 Parish Councils will be sent if the other PC’s adopt the same stance. If you want to have a say then email by 19th October to email@example.com.
Proposed Eco-House on Warrington Road
A proposal to construct an eco-house to be called Orchard House on the plot of land next to Briar Cottage on Warrington Road Hatton was refused planning permission by Warrington Borough Council at the end of last year.
We understand that the site owner intends to submit a new planning application on the basis that the proposed eco-house would be set further back and lower on the site with additional tree planting so that it will be less obtrusive than before. A visual representation of the changes can be seen on our website www.hattonparishcouncil.org.uk go to Parish Council then Planning then Orchard House.
The applicant tells us that the eco-house would be unique in the Warrington area, highly sustainable, built from locally sourced materials with a zero carbon footprint.
We see this as an important and unusual issue for us to consider. As we expect to be asked to comment on this proposal again soon we would really appreciate your views as Hatton residents beforehand. You can do this by sending an email to the Parish Clerk Gillian Lett on firstname.lastname@example.org or tel 07557 680528
