Councillor Jones Hits Back

Home » Newsroom » Councillor Jones Hits Back

It's been a tough week for Cheshire East Council's leader, Michael Jones and it's still only Tuesday.

Following comments from a government inspector about Cheshire East's claims of a five year housing supply, Councillor Jones has gone public with a statement. He said: "This is just a further example of the nonsensical and inconsistent decision-making being executed within the Planning Inspectorate at this current time". Blaming timing of the appeal for not allowing CEC's updated evidence to be presented, he added "We have more appeals to defend in the future and on all of these we will provide a fully evidenced assessment including the National Planning Policy Guidance to ensure we are compliant".

The full statement can be seen here.

Councillor Jones also hit back at BBC Radio Stoke following an interview today, which examined Cheshire East's move to deliver their services through 'arm's length companies'.

Having first taken to Twitter on Monday, he tweeted today, "Done BBC Radio Stoke interview this morning on arms length companies. More bias against us and bad research! Labour is supporting us though."

Tomorrow's another day .........
