New Councillor Welcomed

Kay Loch has joined Neston Town Council as the new Town Councillor for Ness. Mrs Loch, who is already a Cheshire West & Cheshire councillor, was chosen by the Town Council from three applicants for the vacancy, following the resignation of Mr Mike Wellman. Mrs Loch has lived in Ness for 18 years.

New Link in the Chain

Cllr Moira Andrews, first Chairman of Neston Town Council, has presented a new Town Council crest to be added to the Mayor’s chain of office. The sterling silver gilt blue enamelled crest will hang above the pendant. The chain was originally that of the chairman of Neston Urban District Council which was abolished in 1974 when the borough of Ellesmere Port & Neston was created.

Clayhill Industrial Estate Improvements Sought

Neston Town Council is calling for improvements to the town’s industrial estate off Liverpool Road.

Councillors have been told that business owners feel isolated and neglected, and are unhappy with what they see as lack of support from the authorities.

At its June meeting the Town Council agreed to a proposal from Cllr Andy Williams (Neston Ward) for a wide-ranging consultation with businesses on suggested improvements.

These include improved signage to the estate and on it, and efforts to “green” the area with tree and floral plantings. The Council also considered whether a change in name to Neston Business Park would be more appropriate and improve the image of the area.
