THE decision by the secretary of state for communities and local government to refuse permission for Gladman to build 300 houses on Witter’s Field is the right decision for Wistaston and reflects the wishes of the overwhelming majority of local residents.

We would like to thank the local parish council, Cheshire East councillors and the local MP for their support in getting this application refused.

Most importantly we would like to thank all the local residents who took the time to submit their comments and opinions.

Thanks to the hard work of local residents, we all can still enjoy the many benefits that the field provides.
