Answers to questions arising from the proposed sale of Shotwick Park, Cheshire

In February 2021 the Council’s Cabinet approved in principle the sale of its landholdings in Shotwick to Mr Lex Greensill, to enable a programme of environmental enhancements proposed by him to the local community.

Throughout this process, the Council has been clear that it wished to progress the sale with the support of the local community, recognising that, as their elected representatives, the Parish Council and Borough Councillor had an important role in determining the degree of local support to what is a unique and novel proposal. Having initially expressed strong support for the scheme, more recently the Parish Council has raised a number of concerns and questions. Cheshire West and Chester Council officers have sought to respond to these questions as and when they have arisen. However, we recognise that the community would find it helpful to have the key questions and our responses in one place. That is the purpose of this document.

Some of the questions that have been raised are directed at the proposed purchaser, or to the leadership of the Parish Council itself. The Q&As presented here only cover those within the remit of Cheshire West and Chester Council. Key documents associated with our decision-making process are embedded as links within the text.

We hope the Parish Council and local community find this a helpful summary of the key issues that have been raised. We stand ready to respond to any further questions within our remit.
