Former Alsager Court Care Home

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

The Care Home on Sandbach Road North closed in 2016. A planning application was submitted to demolish it and replace it with a new three-storey care home for 60 people. This was turned down by Cheshire East in August 2020 but the developers, Malvern, have appealed, and the appeal has now been granted. There is a separate planning application for the site to develop it for housing.

Council meetings

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle

At the start of Covid the government introduced laws to enable local councils to meet remotely, but these laws are due to expire on 6 May. As yet the government has refused to extend this deadline (even though MPs have given themselves permission to continue to meet remotely until mid June). If a virtual meeting takes place after 6 May its legal status is unclear and any decisions taken could be open to legal challenge. However, social distancing rules will make meeting in person more difficult, particularly in relation to finding venues large enough.

Social media boycott

Many of football’s clubs and organisations are taking part this weekend in a boycott of social media to protest against online abuse. Alsager Town Football Club will be joining this boycott.

The boycott is intended to emphasise to social media companies that more needs to be done to stamp out online abuse and discrimination. English football bodies outlined in a letter to social media companies in February that they wanted to see filtering, blocking and swift takedowns of offensive posts, an improved verification process and re-registration prevention, as well as active assistance for law enforcement agencies to identify and prosecute originators of illegal content.

Control your dogs

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

A lamb died this week in Alsager following a dog attack on livestock. This is not acceptable. Please encourage everyone you know to keep their dogs on a lead around livestock (or better still, avoid fields with lambs).

Covid 19

In the 7 days to 24 April there have been fewer than 3 cases in Alsager East and in Alsager West (suppressed). Cheshire East rolling rate is 16 (17 last week), England is 24 (same as last week).
