To consider a petition signed by 12 signatories calling on the Council to take action to either sell the building for development or ensure regular cleaning of the site is undertaken.

 

The petition states:-

 

“The coach house on Swann Lane has sat derelict for almost 10 years and is now a magnet for anti-social behaviour.

 

“The Council are obligated to ensure that areas under their control are safe and clean and this isn't being done.

 

“It sits adjacent to a pathway used regularly as a cut through to Station Road and therefore sits at the heart of Cheadle Hulme.”

 

In response to the receipt of the petition, the Property Services Manager has produced a report which provides further information on the current status of the property and the efforts being taken by the Council to secure its redevelopment within an acceptable timescale.

 

The Area Committee is recommended to note the petition and the response of the Property Services Manager.

Acre Lane/Moss Lane, Bramhall, Traffic Management Measures pdf icon PDF 95 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration.

 

The Area Committee has previously given approval to a scheme to provide mitigation measures along Moss Lane and Acre Lane on 13 December 2018.  Since the approval of this report a number of communications have been received from members of the public that live adjacent to Measure No. 1, where it is proposed to install a pedestrian refuge island.  At a site meeting between Traffic Services officers, Ward Members and the residents that live adjacent to the proposed pedestrian refuge it was agreed that the island would be removed from the proposals as it may cause issues for the residents entering/ exiting their driveways.

 

In addition it was agreed that, subject to approvals, the remaining budget could be used to provide build outs at the Moss Lane/Ashley Drive junction to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians when travelling northwest/southeast along Moss Lane. 

 

The Area Committee is requested to recommend that the Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport approves the implementation of the measures and the legal advertising of the associated traffic regulation orders contained in Appendix B and, subject to the receipt of no objections within 21 days of the advertisement date, the subsequent making of the orders.
