Report back from Cheadle Area Committee, 5 November 2019

by Iain Roberts on 6 November, 2019

Cheadle Area Committee was at 6pm on Tuesday 5 November 2019 at Trinity Church, Massie Street, Cheadle.

Here’s what was discussed and agreed:

  • Petition from residents of Greenvale Drive and Greenvale Court asking for residents’ parking. The Council currently has a moratorium on residents’ parking schemes while a new policy is worked up. When that is done, the request will be evaluated against the new policy.
  • Funding application from Walk Ride the Cheadles to promote a play streets initiative was approved, with a suggestion that some money could come from Brookfield Shiers Family Trust and the council may well be able to cover insurance costs.
  • Planning application 73373 for two new houses at 1 Eaton Close, Cheadle Hulme was approved, though councillors asked for special attention to be paid to access and road safety both during and after construction.
  • Planning application 74305 for a new mosque and community centre to replace the existing mosque in Heald Green was recommended for approval. The final decision will be made by the council’s Planning and Highways Committee.
  • Planning appeals report was heard, including an injunction taken out against the developer of the former Standard Chemicals site on Mill Lane, Cheadle.
  • Brookfield Shiers Family Trust report. The Trust is a fund managed by local councillors and available (with some restrictions) for local groups to bid for. We agreed to look at investing some money to better promote the Trust as we have more money allocated for projects than we have people applying for it: there is money available!
  • Change to yellow line parking restrictions on Eden Road, Cheadle was approved. The yellow lines on the ground stay the same, but the legal order will be brought into line with them.
  • Report proposing improvements to road safety around Cheadle Primary School was approved.
  • Proposal for additional section of double yellow line on Brown Lane near the junction with Prospect Vale was approved.

    Please explain the item on yellow lines. Does the legal order mean that is is illegal to park there and that transgressors could face a booking/fine if discovered by a warden or police personnel?

    The item about parking is hopefully going to lead to making more residents using their drives rather than the pavements & roadway outside. This is particularly true for vans & other larger vehicles which restrict vision and cause more damage to kerbs.
