Important Notification – Proposed Changes to Parish Boundary (please read carefully)

It is the intention of Cheshire West & Chester Council to change the Little Budworth parish boundary which would mean that all properties north of the A54 would be moved to Whitegate parish and The Fox & Barrel Pub, Sicuani – Fox Bank, Fox Bank Cottage and 2 Fox Bank would be moved to Utkinton parish.

As you will see in the attachment, CWAC are using the answers from the questionnaire which was sent to us all a few months ago. They sent out 274 questionnaires and received back 52, i.e. only 19%.

CWAC Parish Merger Submission

This proposed change does not seem reflect the views expressed within the separate Parish Plan survey (which had a 70%+ response rate) nor does it seem to deliver any major benefits to the majority of those affected, many of whom are active participants in parish affairs.

This is all being done with no reference to the Parish or the residents at this stage. If you object to this move, please call or write to Alison Armstrong, Senior Manager – Partnership & Development, Cheshire West & Chester. Tel. No: 01244 973336.  Email:
