Police to investigate Council land deals

A police investigation is to look into a land deal involving Cheshire East Council – after matters were referred to them by the authority.

The council issued a statement yesterday which said it referred a “new matter” to the police.

The authority, which covers  Macclesfield, Congleton and Crewe and Nantwich, has not given any further details of when the deal took place and who it involved.

Kath O’Dwyer, acting chief executive of Cheshire East Council, said: “As a result of a targeted forensic audit of historical land transactions, I can confirm that we have now referred a further matter to Cheshire police who will consider whether or not there are grounds to investigate.
