The Parish Council does not have any powers in relation to decisions on planning applications. It is consulted on all applications relating to land and property within the Cronton Village boundary and major developments within Knowsley close to the village border.

In addition, the council is consulted by neighbouring local authorities such as Halton and St Helens on any developments which may impact on Cronton Village.

The Parish Council has a very clear policy on any inappropriate development within the green belt and will vigorously oppose such developments.

On this page you will be able to access Parish Council comments on all planning application consultations.

Please follow this link to the Knowsley Council Planning Application Portal where you can view details of planning applications within Knowsley.

Proposed Taylor Wimpey Development Update - Chapel Lane

The Parish Council and one of our Ward councillors have met with Taylor Wimpey twice over the last two weeks, to register our opposition to the proposed development off Chapel Lane.  We have also discussed the development with the current head of planning of Knowsley Borough council and are meeting with his successor later this month. We would encourage everyone to register their opinion on before Monday 17th October. We are intending to produce a petition opposing the development when the outline planning is submitted.
