FOL­LOW­ING the bal­lot in the Mac­cles­field Com­mu­nity

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

Gov­er­nance Re­view, res­i­dents voted in favour of the for­ma­tion of their own town coun­cil. But the turnout for the bal­lot was just 16.2 per cent.

And af­ter pub­lish­ing the story on­line at mac­cles­field-ex­press. co.uk, one reader said on Face­book.

Jane Ford said: “I can’t be­lieve that so many peo­ple couldn’t be both­ered to vote. A town coun­cil will mean some de­ci­sions will be made lo­cally by lo­cal peo­ple not by Cheshire East. Ev­ery other town /vil­lage in cheshire east has a town coun­cil who don’t make all the de­ci­sions ob­vi­ously but will have a say on de­ci­sions that af­fect mac­cles­field as a town. At the mo­ment all the de­ci­sions about our town are made with­out any rep­re­sen­ta­tion from our town.” TIME To Care (UK) CIC, a com­mu­nity in­ter­est com­pany, get plan­ning ap­proval to trans­form the for­mer Everett Charles Tech­nolo­gies premises on Goodall Street into a climb­ing cen­tre. ●● Reader Bex Wil­liams said: “Sounds ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic!” ●● Yvonne Dandy said: “That’s great news! well done to C.I.C.

I don’t care how nice you think yours are or how well be­haved you think they are.

“They’re an­i­mals and need to be con­trolled. That poor cat died a hor­rific and avoid­able death and I hope that those re­spon­si­ble are fined and se­verely mon­i­tored with re­gards to their own an­i­mal wel­fare.”
