Statement on Cheadle and Cheadle Heath Active Neighbourhood scheme

Area committee will discuss plans for the project on September 14

A spokesperson for Stockport Council said: “A proposed trial of an Active Neighbourhood in Cheadle and Cheadle Heath has been led by Transport for Greater Manchester, Arup and Sustrans, in partnership with Stockport Council.

“The proposed trial had been developed through a series of online workshops earlier this year.

“Following a request from local councillors, a further public engagement exercise was undertaken in August regarding that proposed trial.

“Due to the outcomes arising from that further public engagement exercise, Stockport Council Officers have recommended to members that the currently proposed trial does not go ahead and that comments and suggestions from residents will be considered by officers with further public engagement at a future date.”
