●● DAVID Rut­ley has writ­ten to Gov­ern­ment min­is­ters to raise con­cerns over Cheshire East ear­mark­ing green belt for hous­ing. Gail Mclean: This town has been dead for years and no amount of houses be­ing built will stop that.

They need to be giv­ing the shop own­ers 6 months free rent and rates, then a re­duced rate for the rest of the term. It’s got noth­ing to do with houses be­ing built. They have a mill they could buy and con­vert into flats on Lon­don Road, there are lots of houses that need do­ing up. I don’t agree with them us­ing green belt land. Chris New­ton: Times change, we are in a hous­ing crisis, we need homes, they prob­a­bly had this same de­bate when they built the We­ston, Up­ton, Moss and other es­tates. We need homes to live in sac­ri­fices must be made. Paul Dun­levy: Get some houses built.

Use some green belt and stop cram­ming houses into an al­ready crowded town. Stop moan­ing and start build­ing be­fore this town dies. Rachel Cope: Sad thing is that the homes won’t be af­ford­able.

They should be us­ing brown­field sites first and con­cen­trat­ing on re­viv­ing the town cen­tre. No plans for eas­ing the ad­di­tional pres­sure on al­ready con­gested roads or the ex­tra school places needed ei­ther!! ●● LOTS of our read­ers were in sup­port of the 48 hour strike by ju­nior doc­tors. Janet Daly: When the politi­cians freeze their pay rises and curb their ex­penses they will have a leg to stand on.

Till then they should treat every­body fairly. Dorothy Fletcher: Strike ju­nior doc­tors, we’re all be­hind your cause. NHS is pre­cious, so are you and all the nurses! Lucy Con­nor: Com­pletely hum­bled by the over­whelm­ing sup­port ex­pressed by read­ers here.

Thank you so very much!

I prom­ise you we wouldn’t be out there un­less we felt it was ab­so­lutely our only op­tion.

I know the dis­pute is com­pli­cated and of­ten con­flated to ap­pear as though it’s all about pay but I as­sure you we have the best in­ter­ests of our pa­tients and the NHS in mind. James Spils­bury: My op­er­a­tion has been can­celled to­day but I still sup­port the doc­tors strike, un­less they have mil­lions hid­den in Panama like many politi­cians.
