Kingsley Village
in the heart of Cheshire

This is a brief update from the Kingsley Parish Council (KPC) on what has occurred recently regarding the Kingsley Neighbourhood plan.

Over the last 18 months, the development of the plan has been undertaken by an independent steering group, Kingsley Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group (KNPSG), comprised of volunteers from the village and representatives of KPC. The steering group was provided with wide powers, delegated by KPC as the ‘Qualifying Body’ to complete this task, with the appointment of a independent Chairman to complete the plan.





Kingsley Parish Council is seeking applications for a Clerk & Responsible Financial Officer (RFO).

The post is part-time, initially for a period of 8 hours per week, mainly working from the parish office (The Boardroom) in Kingsley.  Working hours are flexible but the post holder must be able to attend the monthly council meetings.  We offer excellent terms and conditions of employment.  Annual salary is paid in accordance with the National Association of Local Councils and Society of Local Council (NALC/SLCC) Pay Scale (LC1 SCP 13-17).  There is no requirement for the post holder to live within the parish.

I have been asked by the Parish Council to advise you of the following Planning Applications

Dear Residents,

We thought it appropriate to update you on the progress of the Higher Heyes Development after a contractor was found to be working on the site during the previous week and caused several questions to local parish councillors. The latest information we have is that the planning conditions placed on the site by Cheshire West and Chester Planning Department are nearing completion and could soon be ‘signed off’ by the appropriate authorities.

As I’m sure you are aware, Kingsley residents, and people with connections to Kingsley have first ‘claim’ on the purchase of the affordable housing that will be built on the site and we will ensure that we provide information about purchasing the properties as soon as it becomes available. We can also now confirm that should the affordable house not be sold; they will be offered through an “affordable rent” scheme.
