However, as part of the consultation, Little Stanney Parish Council submitted an additional request to extend its parish boundary further. Their proposal does not affect the two properties which lie near the north Cheshire Motorway M56: Poplar Hall and Ross Croft. The land which forms this additional extension is currently within the parish of Backford.

What happens next?

After the closing date, the Community Governance Review Committee will analyse the responses at its meeting on 29 November 2018 and then make its final recommendations which will then be considered by Full Council at a meeting on 13 December 2018.   Cheshire West and Chester Council has the authority to change the electoral arrangements and in making its decision, it must take account of public views and comments. The Council must ensure that community governance reflects the identities and interests of the communities in the area under review and is effective and convenient.   All information regarding the Community Governance Review process can be viewed on the Council’s website at:   The review is being conducted in accordance with the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 and the Council must have regard to Guidance on Community Governance Reviews issued by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
