Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.
No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the banner above will help a lot. Thank you.
Following the publication of the revised National Planning Policy Framework on 24th July 2018 the village of Christleton faces a new but very similar application for the development of Christleton Hall. The last application was turned down by Chester City councillors by a vote of 10 to 1 in April 2018
I have received a letter from Cheshire West & Chester City Council this morning advising me of a planning notice for the conversion of Christleton Hall to residential use and the building of 42 dwellings. You will remember the previous application was turned down in April this year by the Council by 10 votes to 1 and the majority of the residents of Christleton. The planning application reference number is 18/03803/FUL and you have until 16th November to submit any comments.
The residents of Christleton are feeling a lot happier today as the sword of Damocles which has been hanging over the village since last summer disintegrated. Yesterday Cheshire West and Chester City councillors decided by a vote of 10 to 1 to reject the controversial plan to develop Christleton Hall into apartments and erect 27 houses. We live in strange times with unwelcome decisions but this time common-sense prevailed.
The Reverend Malcolm Cowan, the rector for the past seven years at St. James' Church, Christleton has now left to take up another Ministry. During the period of Vacancy the Parish will be run by the laity consisting of two churchwardens and the PCC. I now have details of who and how to contact
