PLAN for hun­dreds of homes on Mac­cles­field green belt adopted by coun­cil. Cheshire East has voted to adopt its Lo­cal Plan which in­cludes 100 hectares of green belt. (Ex­press, Au­gust 2) Danny Hi­bell: What does air qual­ity have to do with homes? It’s Cheshire, lots of open space. Thank god, at last, the coun­cil are us­ing Green Belt, I hope they de­cide to use more of it. Mac­cles­field has lots of it. Andy Flack: Get them built, this disin­gen­u­ous ar­gu­ment about green/ brown belt is non­sense, only six per cent of Eng­land’s mass is ur­ban.

Rachel Clare: And all the peo­ple will have a ghost town to walk around. No shops - no en­ter­tain­ment - high park­ing charges - just noth­ing. Jamie Liebreck: This is aw­ful news. James Thomas: There’s three new sites near Con­gle­ton, be more chaos on the roads there. Jerry May: It was bad de­ci­sion for Macc
