2020 Disley & Newtown Civic Awards

Each year, Disley Parish Council bestows Civic Awards on those individuals who have made a real contribution to village life or have done something fantastic for the community.

This year, more than ever, there are many, many people who have been “local heroes” and who have gone above and beyond, to help their community.

Therefore, the Parish Council is asking residents of Disley and Newtown to nominate the people they feel deserve public recognition for their efforts.

Nominations are open for all ages and the Council would particularly like to hear about the actions of our younger residents.  All nominations will be assessed by Councillors and the closing date is Friday 20th November 2020.

The awards will be presented at a socially distanced event as soon as possible when circumstances allow.

Please send nominations to the Parish Council at admin@disleyparishcouncil.org.uk, telephone 01663 762726 or call into the Parish Office at Disley Community Centre.  All we need is the name and contact details of your nominee and the reasons why you think they deserve a “thank you” from the village.

Cheshire East Council – Site Allocations and Development Policies (SADPD) Consultation

The Cheshire East Council Strategic Local Plan sets out a future allocation of houses to be built across Cheshire East to meet housing needs over the next 30 years.

The Site Allocations and Development Policies Document (SADPD) proposes future housing allocations across 13 Local Service Centres in Cheshire East, of which Disley and Newtown is one.

A revised draft of the SADPD is now available and can be found on the Cheshire East Council website at: Cheshire East Local Plan.  The Parish Council will advertise details of the public consultation on this document as soon as they become available.

Disley Parish Council has prepared a statement in response to this, which is available to download at: Disley Parish Council SADPD Statement.
