Cheadle is well supported by people who care for and protect the village environment. This morning I was invited by two such residents together with an engineer from the councils Highways Dept to tour Cheadle High Street and review the pavements.
There are clearly issues with some damage and some loose flag stones.
The conclusion was two particularly risky areas will be ear marked for repair as a matter of urgency. These are:
The Tactile drop kerb right in front of the church gates which have been damaged for the second time in recent memory, the damage appears to be on pavement parking.
The other is the pavement between the charity shop and the church wall on Church Street. Again, the damage seems to be from heavy vehicles mounting the pavement and damaging the substrate such that the pavement is no longer safe.
Other damage noted including loose paving stones in various places along Cheadle High Street. These are subject to a walking surveyed every quarter. Any additional damage identified in these surveys will also be repaired.
