Cheshire East Local Plan – Revised Local Plan Strategy Consultation
Cheshire East Council’s (CEC) Local Plan has major implications for Woodford. It would leave Woodford surrounded by some 5,000 new homes within two miles of Woodford Church. This includes the already planned 920 homes to be built on the ex-BAe Woodford aerodrome site. The developments will result in massive incursions into the Green Belt in Poynton and Handforth.

Avro Heritage Museum
The museum has got off to a great start. Visitors have significantly exceeded expectations, with over 9,700 in the 10 months since opening. Over 300 visitors have signed up as ‘Friends’ of the museum.
The main project of the summer has been the refurbishment and painting of Vulcan XM603, seen below in her protective scaffolding tent. She has been restored to her original white livery and is due to be unveiled in her glory by the end of October.

Poynton Relief Road
SMBC has received the long-awaited planning application for the Poynton Relief Road. This is because the first section is within Stockport Borough. The application is consistent with the earlier consultation based on the ‘Green Route’. It will be a two-way single carriageway with a combined cycle and footway on the western side of the carriageway. The speed limit will be 50 mph. Some additional public rights of way will also be created. The application documents can be viewed at:
Comments should be made in writing/email by 30th October 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The junction between the relief road and the major roundabout on the A6MARR is being constructed as part of that contract. It is expected that the construction start date for the Poynton Relief Road will be July 2018, with completion by late 2019.
