Local Consultation – Parkgate Marshes
Neston Town Council in partnership with the RSPB and in association with Cheshire West and Chester Council and Natural England are considering submitting plans for approval to erect two decked viewing platforms which would extend out from the Parkgate sea wall.
These would provide a walked access to view the wildlife on the existing pond by the Boathouse and the newly created pond situated off the Donkey Stand.
This proposal has been shaped in line with Neston Town Council’s continued fight against the mosquito menace and is part of the Parkgate Marsh Works Project, which has resulted in the main gutters being dredged for the first time in fifteen years and the creation of the two new ponds.
Members of the community are invited to comment on the proposals. These comments will be considered by all the parties involved as part of the decision on whether to proceed with these plans.
To help people to find out more about these proposals, we will be hosting a public consultation on: Saturday 29th October at St Thomas’s Church, Mostyn Square, Parkgate, between 10am and 4pm. Comment forms will be available at the event.
All comments will be considered by the partnership bodies. Neston Town Councillors, together with staff from Cheshire West and Chester Council, RSPB and specialist contractors will be available at the consultation to help explain the proposals and to answer any questions.
