Good News for Vauxhall at Ellesmere Port

The future of the Vauxhall plant in Ellesmere Port has been secured after years of uncertainty with the announcement of a £100 million investment in the site.  Stellantis, which owns Vauxhall, confirmed in a press conference on Tuesday 6 July that the site would be transformed for a “new era” in vehicle manufacturing, with electric vans to be made at the factory.  The company said the investment would at least safeguard the 1,038 jobs based at the factory as well as the around 3,000 more in the wider local economy and supply chain.

Little Stanney and District is a combined parish in Cheshire in the borough of Cheshire West and Chester. As of May 2019 it is part of the Gowy Rural ward of CWaC. Currently, it lies within the parliamentary constituency of Ellesmere Port and Neston. The Parish Council covers four separate parishes:

  • Little Stanney (includes Backford Cross)
  • Stoak
  • Wervin
  • Croughton

Some internet references, e.g. Wikipedia, state that Stoak and Little Stanney are suburbs of Ellesmere Port. This is not the case, nor has it ever been. These two parishes lie in the green belt between Chester and Ellesmere Port and were latterly part of the City of Chester, and formerly Chester Rural District.

N.B. To dispel a few myths, Parish Councils have nothing to do with the church. They form the lowest tier of local government for areas defined by ancient parish boundaries.
