Bill Cash MP welcomes Stafford Borough Council’s decision to refuse wind mast at Aston-by-Stone

Press release 19/11/09

In response to Stafford Borough Council’s Development Control Committee refusing the anemometer mast at Aston-by-Stone, Bill Cash said:

“I welcome the Council’s decision to refuse the application for the wind mast at Aston-by-Stone. I had strongly objected to the proposals for a wind mast, on behalf of my constituents, and I praise the efforts of the 'Stone & Trent Valley Opposed to Severn Trent Water' campaign group, and particularly Paul Shaw, Keith Washington, Kev Ryder and all local residents who have opposed this wind mast.

“These wind energy schemes are uneconomic and packed with distorting subsidies.

“I objected to the mast on the grounds that it was in an entirely unsuitable location, it threatened public access, it was a monstrous obstacle on the skyline, showing little concern for the landscape, listed buildings, wildlife and biodiversity, whilst there were concerns over the refusal of the Environmental Impact Assessment and that it was largely an incongruous and alien development.

“There were also outstanding aviation concerns relating to its positioning under an RAF low flying area. I therefore welcome the Council’s decision to refuse the application for the wind mast.”

 



Bill Cash MP welcomes rail regulator’s response and demands London Midland and Government act on Barlaston and Wedgwood safety fencing

 Following ongoing correspondence to ensure rail safety fencing is installed at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations, Bill Cash MP said:

“I welcome a letter I received today from the Office of Rail Regulation stating that London Midland cannot prevent access at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations until they agree service level changes with the Department of Transport. We are urgently pushing for those discussions to be concluded. The safety fencing must be put up.
 
“I had already received a positive letter from Transport minister, Paul Clark, addressing this situation so I am hoping that the fencing can be erected soon.
 
“I have now written to London Midland and the Department for Transport, urging them to take forward their discussions on agreed service level changes so that we can have the necessary safety fencing at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations.”

Bill Cash MP welcomes London Midland’s rail safety fencing but questions adequacy

Press release 13/11/09

 Following ongoing correspondence to ensure rail safety fencing is installed at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations, Bill Cash MP said:
 
 “After several meetings and ongoing correspondence with the relevant authorities, I welcome London Midland’s letter to me stating that they take all safety matters extremely seriously and they can no confirm that they have fenced off the areas in question.”
 
 “At the same time, I would have to question the adequacy of the measures they have put in place. I am told the fencing is of poor quality with wooden struts acting as a simple barrier to prevent people from walking on to the trackside.
 
 “This needs to be investigated further because I originally called for safety fencing on the basis that it really must ensure the safety of constituents and those passing through our area.”


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 urges Council support for expanding medical centre at Blythe Bridge

Press release 24/08/09       

 
Against the background of Stafford Borough Council’s consideration of the extension of the Trinity Medical Centre (Uttoxeter Road) in Blythe Bridge, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“I have written to Stafford Borough Council in support of this application and demanded that the extensions go ahead at Trinity Medical Centre. I supported the original building of this Medical Centre which serves the population of Blythe Bridge and the surrounding areas.
 
“Since its opening, the Medical Centre has seen its list size increase from 2,500 to 4,200 and that number continues to rise and a wider area is now being served.
 
“Because of the hard work done here, it even reduces waiting times at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
 
“The application to build two extra rooms would further improve patient care – one room is to be used to train medical students and another would be used by clinicians.”
