The Disley and Newtown Neighbourhood Plan Referendum is on Thursday 12th July 2018 at Disley Methodist Church from 7am to 10pm.
The Neighbourhood Plan is a document which has been developed over 2 years with community involvement. It contains community-agreed policies for the next 20 years on planning, local environment, housing, green spaces etc.
The referendum on 12th July is for local residents to vote on whether or not Cheshire East Council will have to refer to the NP in all future planning decisions.
Copies of the Neighbourhood Plan are available to view at Disley Library, the Disley Parish Council Offices or on-line HERE

The Parish Council is considering introducing a weekly Community Shop and Ride Service for Disley and Newtown residents.
If you are finding it difficult to get to the shops and would find it useful to be taken shopping each week, door-to-door, please let the Parish Council know. Also, if you know of anyone in the village who would benefit from this type of service, please get in touch.
The Parish Council can be contacted via email HERE by phone on 01663 762726 or at the Parish Office at Disley Community Centre, off Buxton Old Road, Disley, SK12 2BB.
More information can be found on the Community Bus page HERE

There will be a joint consultation event for Cheshire East Council Local Transport Plan and SEMMMS strategy update at Disley Community Centre on Wednesday 30th May from 2.00 to 7.00pm.
Disley Train Station users are to benefit from improved rail connections to Manchester. From late May 2018, Northern is increasing the number of trains on the route to two an hour, significantly increasing capacity on one of the busiest lines into the city.
Disley Parish Council, the Friends of Disley Station (FODS) and local MP, David Rutley have been working with Northern for some time to secure improved services for Disley Station.
The improvements will not just benefit commuters, they will give visitors more options when travelling to Disley to visit local shops and eateries, go to Lyme Park or walk the Gritstone Trail etc.
The improvements come as part of Northern’s May 2018 timetable changes which are paving the way for the modernisation of the railway and the introduction of 2,000 extra services each week by 2020. Unfortunately, due to delays in the delivery of the Manchester to Preston electrification, it has been necessary to postpone some of the improvements Northern had hoped to deliver.
Northern’s new timetable for Disley is available to view, print and download HERE.
