AMBITIOUS plans to create a new super parish council in Tarvin are being drawn up.
It is hoped surrounding villages and unparished areas, including Stapleford, Willington, Hockenhall and Huxley will become part of a new ‘Greater Tarvin’ or ‘Tarvin and District’ ward.
If approved the super parish council would be responsible for an area the size of Chester.
The proposal comes after Tarvin Parish Council replied as consultees to the Boundary Committee’s report on the potential size of the new Cheshire West and Chester authority.
With the council due to rise from 72 councillors to 75, the extra three representatives and their potential designated wards are up for debate.
Parish councillors in Tarvin say the size of the district, boosted by resident numbers if they are successful in creating a new Greater Tarvin, will justify having a member representing the ward.
Speaking at a meeting, Cllr Ted Lush supported the idea of a single-member ward due to Tarvin being “the largest village in the Gowy ward”.
He said: “It would enable large settlements to have a member of their own. It emphasises the importance of community empowerment.
“If we agree to 75, we need to think for the next stream. I agree with a single member ward for Greater Tarvin.”
The current ward boundaries, under the 72-member council, could change should the authority increase in size.
Tarvin Parish Council will consult with the new authority.
Chairman David Cotgreave said: “The only boundaries are the current CWaC boundaries, anything else could be chopped up.”
The consultation process for the Boundary Committee’s report ends on Monday.
