Conservative Councillor urges residents to visit Camelot developer exhibitions

Paul Leadbetter, Conservative Borough councillor for Chisnall, is calling on residents in and around the Camelot site in Charnock Richard to attend local exhibitions on development plans for the site.

In his leaflet to residents Paul writes "Story Homes are now proposing to submit a planning application for 195 houses and an employment area comprising 3,000 sq metres (about ¾ of an acre or about half of a football pitch, although this is the area of the buildings the actual area they occupy will be much larger) of office and small-scale start-up office/workshop units, situated adjacent to the existing employment units and the car park adjacent to the site entrance." 

Cllr Leadbetter adds "Please do all you can to be involved in this major planning proposal and I will do my best to make sure everyone is aware of what happening."

The developer exhibitions are being held on Thursday 16 March from 4 pm to 7 pm at Charnock Richard Football Club, and on Saturday 18 March, 11 am to 2 pm at Heskin Village Hall.

It is thought a formal planning application is expected to be made to Chorley Council in the spring.

Paul was joined by County Councillor Keith Iddon, who currently represents Eccleston and Mawdesley, Euxton South and Lostock wards on Lancashire County Council.

But from May 4, Charnock Richard and Heskin joins a new Chorley Rural West Division replacing Euxton South that form part of another new division, with Keith as the Conservative choice as candidate.
