The funeral service will take place at St Lawrence’s Church, Biddulph, on a date to be arranged. Time finally runs out for 80-bed care home plans

By Lyndsey Telford Plans for an 80-bed residential care home in Arclid have been quashed after Cheshire East councillors refused to grant the applicant a time limit extension.

The Planning Committee decided that because the owner of the land, which is on the former site of Arclid Hospital, had failed to provide them with adequate information on the area — including ecological and wildlife surveys — they would not have enough information on which to base their decision even if an extension was granted.

Applicant and landowner Roy Woodcock received outline planning permission for the care home in 2007, but he failed to commence development within the time limit of three years.

He wanted to build the home on the southern part of the site, accessed from Newcastle Road to the west. It would have provided elderly people from Congleton, Sandbach and surrounding towns with what councillors deemed a much-needed facility.

But Coun John Jones said he suspected the applicant had no intention of developing the site, hence failing to produce the required surveys.

“I have a feeling that if we grant this extension it will lie for a great deal longer than another three years. If three years isn’t long enough how long do they need?” he asked.

However, speaking on the applicant’s behalf, ward councillor John Wray said Mr Woodcock had only failed to submit the required surveys because they were too expensive.

“For the applicant to produce the ecological surveys requested it would have cost him in excess of £5,000,” he explained.

But Coun Shirley Jones said she could see no “commitment” from the applicant to develop the site, which she added was a shame because she thinks the area is in need of a care home.

“I have a friend who has had to take a sheltered accommodation bungalow because all the care homes in the area are full,” she said.

Despite that, Coun Brian Dykes recommended refusal of the time extension, a move supported by the rest of the committee at last Wednesday’s meeting.

Book older pets for a check-up at discount price

Congleton Veterinary Centre has recently launched a new service for the older pets in Congleton and surrounding areas.

The clinic, at West Heath Shopping Centre, is now offering animals over eight years of age a check up with the vet and routine screening blood tests for liver and kidney function, at a discounted price.

James Ede, owner of the practice, advises that as pets get older, they are more likely to develop certain diseases including diabetes, thyroid problems, or issues affecting the liver or kidneys.

He said: “The benefit of routine testing is that we may well find changes on blood tests before an animal is actually ill, thereby increasing the chance of successful treatment, or prolonging the life of a family pet.”

The “Over eight club” at the practice involves a check up with one of our qualified nurses, to discuss any areas of concern such as changes to appetite, drinking, or mobility/ joint problems, or dental disease. They will also then take a blood sample, and run the tests at the practice the same day. The results would be available to discuss with the vet, face-to-face, the following day where any additional concerns could be thoroughly discussed. The vet appointment would also include a thorough examination.

This entire package is available for just £55, representing a discount of more than £15. Please call 01260 272131 to book an appointment, or with any other query.

01260 272131

OPEN ALL DAY SATURDAY: Until 6.00 p.m. FREE PUPPY/KITTEN PACK: Worth over £25 with all puppy/kitten vaccination courses. OVER 8 CLUB: discounted check up and blood tests for cats and dogs over 8 years - please phone for details.

Please contact the surgery for further details

Opening Times: Monday to Friday 8.30am to 7.00pm Saturday 8.30am to 6.00pm (Sunday 10.00am to 12.00) Consultations by appointment please

The family en route to Tynemouth morning.

Beth, who has completed the ride twice before, said: “I found this cycle ride hardest because i t was the longest. We had to do more cycling each day. There was more pressure to do i t quickly and i t was hillier as well.”

Beth, who raised £250 for the dog sanctuary last year, said she wants to be a vet.
