Residents in shock after developers of over-50s complex pull out of Biddulph

Residents have been left shocked after the developers who were set to build an over-50s complex pulled out.

Biddulph town councillor John Redfern said: “I am disappointed. It’s something that Biddulph needed for the elderly population.
