Local Plan Playing Pitch Strategy and Indoor Built Facilities Strategy

Cheshire East Council is seeking feedback on two key strategies, relating to Playing Pitches and Indoor Built Facilities across Cheshire East. These provide an assessment of existing sports facilities and the future demand for them, linked to the levels of growth proposed in the Local Plan Strategy. They also include draft action plans to ensure that the right number and type of sports facilities are provided to meet the needs of existing and future residents in the Borough – and in doing so providing more opportunities for people to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

They will support Local Plan Strategy policies that look to protect existing facilities and provide for further investment in existing or new facilities.

Public consultation will conclude on Tuesday 30th May 2017.

A6/MARR mitigation – A statement from Cheshire East Council

At the request of Disley Parish Council, in light of the many comments, queries and concerns raised by Disley and Newtown residents, Cheshire East Council Highways have asked for the following statement to be communicated to the village.  The Parish Council continues to be in discussions with CEC Highways on further related proposals.

“Following the well-attended Public Engagement events at Disley Primary School on 10th and 11th March   Cheshire East Council received 215 pieces of correspondence about the mitigation scheme in Disley. The information gathered shows there is support for the concept to improve the centre of the village by widening footways and enhancing the Fountain Area. The design for this area will be further developed based on the feedback given focusing on maintaining traffic movements through the traffic lights at the Rams Head junction.

 There was also good support for the footway improvements in Jacksons Edge Road and the introduction of the traffic signals.

Comments provided on the A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road Mitigation Measures have also been considered and a number of changes have been implemented including:

  • Relocating pedestrian refuge island to the north side of Light Alders Lane / Coppice Avenue;
  • Amending through lane widths at Light Alders Lane / Coppice Avenue junction and Lyme Park junction to be minimum 3.0m
  • Retaining the bus stops in their current locations either side of Dryhurst Lane with additional localised footway widening
  • Removing proposed parking outside the Springfield Allotments
  • Improved sight stopping distances at the Allotments bend by use of road markings
  • Extending parking bays where possible
  • Omitting the Give Way and turn lane arrows at the minor side roads and accesses to the east of the Esso Garage.
  • Will be prioritised for future trial of Air Pollution-reducing paving material at Redhouse Lane junction
  • Improved cycle lane marking from Fountain Square to Stockport Boundary

 We wish to thank the residents of Disley for their valuable feedback. The mitigation measures will be implemented in the coming weeks and will be completed by Autumn 2017.”

Should residents wish to contact Cheshire East Highways regarding this statement, they can email to: or telephone 0300 123 5020.
