Northern are due to resurface the car park at Disley Railway Station from 29th June to 13th July 2020. Unfortunately, the car park will be closed while this work is undertaken.
The Friends of Disley Station and Disley Parish Council have been working in partnership with Northern for some time to secure these much-needed improvements.
Residents may be aware that Cheshire East Highways have implemented temporary traffic management measures, including the suspension of parking on Fountain Square, to assist with social distancing guidelines.
Disley Parish Council responded to a Cheshire East Council consultation regarding these measures and did not support any suspension of parking bays in Disley village. Disley Parish councillors were, therefore, surprised to learn that these measures were to be implemented and the Parish Council has unanimously agreed that this particular measure was unnecessary.
Consequently, the Chair of the Council has written to Cheshire East Council to request that they review the suspension as soon as possible. A copy of the Parish Council email is available at: DPC email to Cheshire East
Full details regarding measures in Cheshire East can be found at: Cheshire East High Street Social Distancing Measures.
With reference to disabled access, information on the Cheshire East website states:
“There is no specific exemption for disabled drivers. If a vehicle requires access to a property within the closure this will be possible.
However, we are asking the public to observe closures wherever that is possible to allow space for people to social distance in the interests of public health.”
Cheshire East Highways are due to carry out repairs on the B5470 Whaley Bridge to Macclesfield road. They will be repairing the collapsed road near Kettleshume from 8th June to 10th July 2020. A diversion will be in operation. For more information visit: One Network
