    Morning Iain
    Could you please add to the agenda a question from me?
    When will the pavements on and around Cheadle High Street be repaired (defective work rectified). These pavements have been defective since they were laid by the contractor George Cox, you are trying to encourage people out of their cars but walking into Cheadle risks splashing your trousers and shoes (caused by rocking paving slabs) or tripping on the loose uneven pavings. Please obtain a start/finish date for this work and also who will be paying for this urgent remedial work.
    And please don’t blame this on Brexit or funding cuts, it’s simply a case of forcing the original contractor to rectifie their shoody work

    • Iain Roberts says:

      Hi Roy – we’ve reported on this before. Repair work has been done. It’s an ongoing process, of course, as more slabs become loose over time and more needs to be done. We’ll ask for this to be done.

      • Peter Rowley says:

        Hi Iain,
        The majority of the lose slabs are the same ones as before. The quality of work is appalling. They were finishing off failing to fix the ones outside Reed Rains as I was walking by a couple of weeks ago. I think they brushed in a cement type slurry into the cracks but as the foundations have failed such a solution does not solve the problem hence the reason there has been no improvement.

  2. Peter Rowley says:

    I agree with Roy.
    Somebody went round spraying an orange dot on some (but certainly not all) of the loose slabs. It has been so long since that was done the paint has almost worn off.
    The contractors excuse that the damage is due to vehicles mounting the pavement does not stand up as there are slabs behind bollards that are also loose. Given that the council and the contractors are fully aware that vehicles mount the pavement in certain places the foundation of the slabs needs to be sufficiently robust.

  3. Janet Holmes says:

    My support for the above …wasted money from the outset when the forecast was that these issues would appear. To my knowledge ‘red dots’ were applied two years ago, again in the autumn, and were washed away with no repairs carried out! Total waste of taxpayers money….and time , effort, and community interest in complaining. Shambles.

  4. Peter Rowley says:

    I have submitted a question on this topic to the Area Committee meeting via the Stockport council website. I am hoping to attend the meeting on the 29th.
