Outdoor Sports and Leisure Land at Brook Road
The reserved matters Planning Application for the Brook Road land was submitted by the Parish Council on 3rd October.

Tarporley Primary School Consultation
The first of many steps to increase the size of our Primary School has now been undertaken, with CWaC undertaking an initial consultation about their proposal to expand the capacity of the school from 210 places to 315 by September 2018. This will mean a 1.5 class intake, instead of the current 1 class. Assuming the Director of Education agrees to this proposal, then this month (November) Public Notices will be displayed in the press, at the school and on the CWaC web site informing people how they can submit any comments or objections. Only sometime after that will the planning application be made and it is then that we will all have a chance to view the re-design of the existing school buildings and the design of new ones.
Look out for smiley SID. A new Speed Management Scheme has started in Tarporley. Volunteers have been trained by Cheshire West and Chester Council Highways Team on how to operate the speed indicator device (SID) and are now taking to the streets. The device is used to inform drivers of their current speed and will be used on Utkinton Road, Walkers Lane, Brook and Bowmere Road plus Cobblers Cross. Other roads within the village are being assessed for suitability for this scheme. The Parish Council are looking for extra volunteers to help with the scheme so if you have a spare hour or two a week and would like to get involved, please email Abigail at email@example.com
