DAVENHAM Parish Council has agreed that Kingsmead should go it alone.
The massive estate of nearly 1,800 houses and about 5,000 people could have its own parish council soon.
Most of the estate is in Davenham. But Vale Royal Borough are consulting residents in Davenham, Kingsmead and Northwich.
The creation of a new parish of Kingsmead.
Kingsmead to come entirely under Northwich or Davenham.
To retain the status quo.
Davenham parish council held an extraordinary meeting last week and decided it makes sense for Kingsmead to stand on its own.
A statement said: “It would allow each community to be best served and permit each council to concentrate on issues affecting each individual parish.
“In every respect, except the parish boundary, all other civic arrangements divide the parish:
“The parish is in two separate wards of the borough council; is in two wards of the county council, which will continue with new Cheshire west council; the parish will be in two separate parliamentary constituencies at the next election and, recently, the parish was also divided into two areas over the police community support role.
“In each case the boundary is the A556 Northwich by pass, a formidable barrier to creating any real sense of community.
“The area that would form a Kingsmead Parish is not as easily defined as that of the village area but resolution of those issues would be less emotive than that of the current situation.”
A small part of Kingsmead falls under Northwich town council, which has previously been reluctant to cede the territory.
