We the undersigned petition the council to remove their proposals to abolish the Leighton and Woolstanwood Parishes and merge the Minshull Vernon Parish, from their next consultation.
In the three Parish Polls on the 10/6/21, residents voted by massive majorities against the changes proposed by the Cheshire East Council.
In Leighton, 98% voted against abolition.
In Woolstanwood 97% voted against abolition.
In Minshull Vernon, 68% voted against merger with the Church Minshull Parish Council.
Despite this, the Borough Council are now proposing to have yet another consultation. We call on the Borough Council to remove their proposals to abolish the Leighton and Woolstanwood Parishes and merge the Minshull Vernon Parish, from their next consultation and to honour the overwhelming outcome of the Parish Polls.
The residents of Leighton, Woolstanwood and Minshull Vernon have
resoundingly rejected the abolition of their Parish Council, in
three Parish Polls.
The Borough Council should accept these overwhelming democratic
votes and withdraw their plans to abolish the Parish Council.
