A WELLBEING retreat proposal for Grade Ilisted Caverswall Castle is to come back before planners.

Negotiations for a legally-binding agreement which would see a portion of profits from the retreat business ploughed into repairing the castle have reached an impasse.

Permission for alterations to an outbuilding remains in place, but the future of the castle as a wellbeing centre is now in doubt.

The case will be looked at again by the planning applications committee at Staffordshire Moorlands District Council this week.

STRICT controls have been imposed to protect Uttoxeter residents as workers prepare to lay the foundations of the A50 ‘growth corridor.’ Traffic control and dust monitoring arrangements are in place for the next phase of the project. Once completed, a new multi-level junction on the A50, to the west of Uttoxeter, will provide improved access to new housing and employment to the south, and new and existing JCB factories to the north of the A50. Now, covered lorries carrying the material to be used in the foundations of the embankments supporting the bridge, will bypass Uttoxeter as much as possible while a strict system of dust control is being imposed to maintain air quality in the neighbourhood.




A GRANT of £80,000 has been awarded for urgent repairs to the jewel in Cheadle's crown - Pugin's Gem.

St Giles Romas Catholic Church needs to find an extra £32,000 to fund urgent repairs to the building's spire, belfry and guttering.

The grant has been awarded from a pot of £22.9million earmarked for historic places of worship across the UK.

Work on the Grade I listed building, which is renowned for both its exterior and interior, is expected to start later this year and could take up to three months.

JUST when we thought there was nothing left for local lad Levison Wood to conquer, the former Painsley Catholic College pupil, who shot to television stardom for his daring feats in adventure documentaries Walking the Nile and Walking the Himalayas, is set to push himself to the limits once more.

Channel 4 has announced a third major series with Forsbrook born explorer Lev Wood, as he takes on a 1700 mile trek along the spine of the Americas from Mexico to Colombia. Beginning in the north-eastern tip of Mexico, Levison will walk the entire length of Central America, through eight countries before attempting to cross the treacherous Darien Gap into Colombia and South America.
