Burton Resident's Association

Published: 14th March 2013 09:46

Burton Residents' Association was formed in 1988 to ensure that the historic nature of the village was safeguarded and enhanced.

Burton VillageDuring the period since then several proposed developments have threatened the well-being of the village. The most serious of these proposals was to allow plans to expand the Deeside Industrial Park along the shoreline adjacent to the village and also alongside the neighbouring historic villages of Puddington and Shotwick. A united effort raised almost £45,000 to fight the proposals at a public enquiry. Eventually, after a long drawn out planning enquiry with several appeals, the plans were refused permission and the land is now Green Belt.

Another threat to the village was a proposal by a Flintshire waste disposal company to build a 65ft high refuse tip and waste sorting factory, operating 24 hours a day, on the Dee Marshes adjacent to a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and in sight of Burton. Once again, together with local MPs and councils and after strong campaigning, the plans were dropped.

The Residents' Association is run by a committee of local residents. The monthly committee meetings review proposed developments in the village including Planning Applications. Cheshire West and Chester Council take into consideration any comments the Association have on the proposed developments which may affect the village and residents. Several members assist the local police team with Speed-Watch activities in a bid to help reduce excessive speeding through the village.
