Welcome to the Great Boughton Parish Council website.
Retirement Village at Boughton Heath Park and Ride site.
Retirement Villages UK are currently planning to build 147 apartments across six villas which will be available to buy and rent. The villas range between three and five storeys, located away from the site edges and screened with planting and trees so they are less visible from Whitchurch Road.
The developers want to encourage the local community and people using the Park and Ride to enjoy the public spaces at the retirement village. They’ve taken on board your views on what kind of facilities you’d like to see and that these shouldn’t compete with what’s already in Boughton Heath.
The development would also provide a boost to the local economy creating around 30 jobs when the site is completed, plus additional jobs during construction, and bringing extra income for the Council through business rates. More information can be found at https://chesterretirementvillage.co.uk/the-plans/
Great Boughton Parish Council are in discussions with the developers and have released a position statement:
Great Boughton Parish Council believe the development at Beechmore Nursery will provide a positive contribution to the wellbeing of the our residents and future residents in the Retirement Village itself and are therefore in general in support of the development of a Retirement Village at the site in Boughton Heath, however, the council does have some significant concerns about the impact on the existing road infrastructure and the resulting access issues. The council also believe that this development should move forward in collaboration with all interested parties for the benefit of all concerned.
GREAT BOUGHTON IN BLOOM 2020!
Our judges have toured the parish during July and will be deciding over the next few weeks whose garden is their favourite. Their decisions will be shared with you during Sept/October and a display of all entries will be held in Vicars Cross Community Centre during the autumn so that local residents can come and admire all your hard work.
Watch this space or contact the Clerk for more details.
