    Ooooooh. They're going to need a stoplight at the corner of Ilford and Town.

    Congratulations on the new project, Simon! Very nice to see this progress.
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    I'm confused about something, maybe it's the difference between English and American language but this sentence confused me.

    “It’s a massive development and 375 is a huge amount and that will turn Mobberley into a town."

    Isn't Mobberley already a town? That's why it has people working at the factory and living near the factory?

    The current plant is quite new, it is not the original Ilford plant. And newer at least than Mobberley. It is not one of those plants having own housing estates around.

    Seemingly people at Mobberley find their place still to be too small. It is not yet a town legally.

    Stone,
    The British version of Google lists this as its first entry from Wikipedia:
    Mobberley is a semi-rural village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, situated between Wilmslow and Knutsford. (...)According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 2,546.

    Sometimes the designation is arbitrary, and sometimes is based on population, services, or other things. I do remember a couple villages in North East Ohio becoming cities (despite not wanting to) because of population growth, although "village" is still part of the official name. It can be a bit confusing, on paper at least.

    This won't give a final word, but may shed some light on the concept:

    OH!! It's a VILLAGE... It did say village in the article it just never clicked, and I grew up in a city of 150,000 people, my brain doesn't even differentiate between a town and a village haha, they are all "quaint" places I don't see how a place of 2,000 people adding 375 more homes would be so bad that it would upset the populous of that area. Though I could see that adding 375 more homes would mean some might move from their current home to the newer homes leaving 375 abandoned homes in an area that doesn't have any other industry to support people moving in. Unless somehow the new factory would employ MORE people, but I don't know how that could be possible, I would think it would mean less because of smaller scale. I suppose the addition of whatever is built in place of the old factory they are tearing down (like the parks proposed) means some need for caretakers but I can see how it would upset the balance of the area.
