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:
