David recently met with the Managing Director of David Wilson Homes, Graham Swann and Planning Director, Andrew Taylor, alongside Peter Taylor, Assistant Director, Regeneration, Development and Housing at the Council in order to raise the concerns of local residents and to receive a detail progress report on developments in Chapelford.
Final surfacing of the main infrastructure road is nearing completion and this has meant that a programme for adoption of the main roads on a phased basis from April 2013 has now been agreed between David Wilson Homes and the Council. The Council will then be responsible for the maintenance and gritting of the roads.
Alongside the addition of new homes on the estate, new amenities are also close to completion. DWH hopes to have completed construction of a mini supermarket by the summer and a new pub and family restaurant is scheduled to be completed around the same time. A new Primary School is scheduled to open its doors around Easter 2013
The "Chapelford Connector", a bus service operated by Warrington Borough Transport has been established to serve all residents of the Urban Village in order to promote sustainable transport and provides crucial link between Chapelford and the town centre. DWH has provided residents with free passes to use this service.
Dakota Park has been an ongoing concern of residents who want some open space for their children to play in. This project has been subject to numerous delays, some of which were due to unforeseen circumstances and others due to disagreements between the Council and DWH. Most of these issues have now been ironed out and David has pressed for the remaining issues to be resolved as soon as possible so that the park can finally be opened.
