The indicative layout for Outline Planning now shows 13 homes (one extra) being proposed by Crabtree Homes Ltd for land to the east of Hermitage Lane, with access off Nether Lea. (see layout below). The mound to the east (allegedly to deflect interference to JBO) has been removed.
Proposal Feb 2019 now shows an extra dwelling and no mound
The decision, by delegated authority, has been moved to the end of March 2019.
Link to application: 18/4980C
Previous layout for 12 homes Nether Lea 18/4980C
Before these changes Goostrey Parish Council had objected – as had JBO. Jodrell Bank Observatory were also opposed to a previous application for 26 homes at this location (Ashalls submitted a different proposal in 2014 – 14/1964C ; refused and then withdrawn before appeal).
“The development will provide a mixture of market and affordable homes enhancing the land which has previously been used for agriculture and is currently empty .” Design & Access, Crabtree Homes.

“I really do believe in the community,” said theatre director Joan Littlewood.
And so do we.
So we decided to put together a full length play about the life of this fascinating woman entitled ‘Joan and Jimmy’.
Known as the ‘Mother of Modern Theatre’, Littlewood’s work was inspirational – especially for organisations like ours.
She devoted her life to community and political theatre and made it her mission to make theatre more accessible to the people of the north in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Littlewood is famously quoted as saying: “I really do believe in the genius in every person. And I’ve heard that greatness come out of them, that great thing which is in people.”
So you can see why we admire her so much…..
Our production, will tell the story of her life and that of her one time husband and partner Ewan MacColl (aka Jimmy Miller) covering the early days of Theatre Workshop; from Kendal in 1945 to Stratford East in 1952.
written by Jim Woodland and directed by Mike Bettison.

Is a conductor the same as a guard?
“RMT has agreed to suspend its strike action and recommence talks about the future role of the conductor. This follows positive discussions between RMT and Northern. It is unfortunately too late to reintroduce a full timetable in time for 09/02/19. bit.ly/2WIVDvL” Northern.
