Disley Parish Council is excited to unveil Disley’s first public electric vehicle chargepoints at the Community Centre car park in the centre of the village.
The chargepoints have dedicated parking spaces and use Superfast 22 kW technology for quick charging. Payment is made easily through the VendElectric app available from Google Play, the AppStore or the app.vendelectric.com website.
The installation of the chargepoints is part of the Parish Council’s on-going commitment to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality in Disley and was part-funded by an OZEV grant.
The chargepoints are now fully operational and User Guide is available to download at:

Disley Parish Council has received information from Cheshire East Council Highways that there are two separate road closures imminent for Buxton Old Road in Disley.
A6 to Mudhurst Lane junction
This 5-day closure was originally due to commence on 13th August 2021 but was postponed at the last minute due to “Covid restrictions and resource availability.” The closure was to carry out much-needed Level 2 patching.
Cheshire East had hoped to complete the works towards the end of August, but this has not happened. The Parish Council has been assured that once a date has been confirmed, Cheshire East will send a letter to all affected residents. The Parish Council is aware that the original signage is still in place and has requested that this be removed to avoid confusion. The Cheshire East Council closure notice for this work states that, “vehicular access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and residents where possible.” The original closure was due to be between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day with a diversion route in operation. It is hoped that this will remain the case for the rescheduled work.
Update: The Parish Council has requested an update from Cheshire East Highways to confirm the new start date and is awaiting a reply.
From Mudhurst Lane junction to Redmoor Lane junction.
This is a 6-week closure from Monday 6th September 2021 until approx. Friday 15th October 2021 and the closure will be in force 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The closure is to allow for the urgent, safety-critical repair of a retaining wall at Byron House and to replace a timber parapet. Cheshire East Highways have confirmed that the nature of the works requires a full road closure to ensure the safety of the public and the workforce. The road signage contains contact details for the Traffic Management Supervisor should there be any problems during the works. A diversion route will be in operation.
The Parish Council will continue to liaise with Cheshire East Council regarding these closures and update residents as soon as possible.

At a Parish Council meeting held on 8th July 2021, Councillors agreed the below Statement:
Disley Parish Council is not currently progressing discussions with Cheshire East Council regarding the asset transfer of Danehill Close Play Park. Cheshire East has indicated that it would need to resolve possible encroachment issues at the site. The Parish Council is also concerned that any asset transfer would not include any monies to bring the site up to an acceptable condition. Cheshire East have stated that Disley Parish Council would be required to meet both sets of legal fees. Should Cheshire East’s policy on asset transfers change in the future, then the Parish Council would reconsider the proposal.
Disley Parish Councillors will be available to meet with Disley and Newtown residents ahead of each monthly Council Meeting.
The surgeries will be confidential and Cheshire East Councillor, Cllr. Brendan Murphy, will also attend whenever possible.
The surgeries will be by appointment only, so if you would like to discuss any local issue with a Parish Councillor, please either phone 01663 762726 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Forthcoming surgeries will be held at Disley Community Centre on:
