Culcheth Sixth Form closure faces opposition

Warrington Guardian: Clr Chris Vobe Clr Chris Vobe

THE closure of Culcheth Sixth Form will be met with strong opposition from a number of councillors at a scrutiny meeting to take place later this year.

Following a decision by the council’s executive board to support the school’s governing body’s decision to shut down the sixth form, Clr Chris Vobe (Culcheth, Glazebury and Croft - LAB) has called for the matter to be debated in a public meeting.

Clr Vobe argues that professional advice has not been given enough consideration and that the decision lacks clarity and alternative options have not been considered.

He said: “Scrutiny is an important part of our council’s democratic process, as it allows elected councillors a further opportunity to consider issues after the council’s executive board has made a decision, and for those who represent a given area to present an alternative view point on behalf of their community.

“I believe that there are a number of important points which need greater consideration and, to that end, I have initiated this call in. I am pleased that it has been counter-signed by 15 other councillors, from across all three political parties.”
