Press Release from Neston Town Council 15 June 2015:
NEW MP HAILS “PRODUCTIVE MEETING” WITH TOWN COUNCIL
New local MP Justin Madders described as “productive” his informal meeting with members of Neston Town Council last week for an exchange of views. After the meeting he said, “There was a lot of agreement on the future priorities for the town.”
Councillors pressed the case for improvements especially to the rail service for Neston, and the problems caused by the service being run within a Welsh franchise. Mr Madders fully understood the concerns saying he was to ask his first oral question in the House on Wednesday morning on this topic.
Other local priorities discussed included the urgent need for affordable housing and economic development in the town.
Councillors expressed concern that Cheshire West and Chester Council might find the emerging city region devolution programme challenging. The MP has already put down a written question about the government’s policy on devolution in the area.
Mr Madders was impressed with Town Council initiatives such as securing the Liverpool to Chester cycle ride passing through the town on 5 July.
The councillors emphasised the role of the local council in championing the needs and aspirations of the town.
The meeting was held at the request of the MP, the first time such a request has been made by the local member. He agreed to meet with local councillors at regular intervals in the future.
In its drive to work more closely with individuals and authorities, councillors are due to meet informally this week with local Cheshire West councillors.
