Cash pursues toxic waste ‘hot potato’ with Staffordshire Moorlands District Council

Press release 17/12/09

“The developers have allegedly said the toxic waste concerns had nothing to do with them. When they were asked, in one scenario, who would be responsible when the piles are driven in from the Power Station construction, which may cause the seal to break and toxic waste to leak, they insisted they had no control over the toxic waste. 
 
“The developers have also said they have put three monitoring wells in and so far nothing has been detected, but this may not be enough considering the extent of the toxic waste in the area.
 
“Officers in the Council also insist that it is not their responsibility but the person who bought the land, and so it seems, the toxic waste has become a real hot potato in which nobody seems to want to take any responsibility.”
 
“I have therefore urged Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, to take the necessary action to ensure public confidence in this serious issue.”


Bill Cash welcomes revisiting of Mobberley Farm plans

Press release 14/08/09       

After major Cheadle housing plans were thrown out, MP for Cheadle, Bill Cash, said:
 
“I am extremely glad to hear that the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council Group leadership have agreed to revisit the whole question of the Mobberley Farm plans. It is a welcome step that these major housing developments have been thrown out.”
 
Bill Cash opposed the proposals in 2001 and had a meeting with the leaders of the Mobberley Farm opposition group, the SWAT committee, on Wednesday 12th August, following earlier discussions in Cheadle. He is glad that a decision had been made. He disagreed with the proposals, as he said yesterday on Radio Stoke.


Bill Cash questions East Staffordshire Borough Council vote over Blythe Park power station

Press release 18/12/09

 
Bill Cash said today:
 
“It has come to light that East Staffordshire Borough Council have voted over the Blythe Park power station plans, even though the proposed site is clearly within the boundaries of Staffordshire Moorlands District Council. The Government itself has acknowledged that the decision over the proposals falls to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, but overall responsibility lies with the Secretary of State, so I am not certain as to the reasons why a local council in a different area would vote for this.”
 
“I have therefore written to the Chief Executive of East Staffordshire Borough Council to question why this has been done and to further investigate the reasons why they felt it was in their remit to vote in favour of this highly objectionable proposal.”


Bill Cash MP welcomes exciting new Staffordshire Credit Union

Press release 19/06/09       

Local MP, Bill Cash last night made a speech at the launch of the Staffordshire Credit Union. He praised all the management and the Chief Executive, Kevin Waters, for what he regarded as one of the most exciting developments in recent Staffordshire history, which he had himself originally proposed for Cheadle and Stone and other parts of the constituency.
 
Bill Cash said “Because of the problems of loan sharks against the background of dire economic circumstances and including the problems at Wedgwood and JCB and the dairy farmers and others affected in the rural community, I regard the initiative of the Staffordshire Credit Union as vital to the local communities within my constituency.”
 
Mr. Cash had been pursuing the idea of a credit union which would serve his constituents for many months.


Bill Cash MP warns Staffordshire County Council of concerns for public safety, businesses and parking at proposed pedestrian crossing at Upper Tean

Press release 25/11/09

 
Following objections from local residents on the proposed pedestrian crossing on the A522 High Street/New Road Upper Tean’s pedestrian crossing facilities, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“This measure for a new crossing was supposed to support the pedestrian flow from the Mill Development from Hall Yard but it creates a dangerous threat to public safety. As Checkley Parish Council have stated, vehicles exiting the Mill Development will be consciously looking left and pulling straight onto the zebra crossing. This is a hazard.
 
“Those with local businesses will lose parking spaces on the street and it will have a detrimental impact on their business.
 
“There are also concerns that by taking away the corner of New Road, it will cause people to step onto the road at this point and it is obvious that this will be highly dangerous.”
 
“I have written to Staffordshire County Council so that they can address these concerns and I would welcome the views of any of my constituents where they are affected by these proposals.”
