Members of the public were invited to put questions to the Chair of the Area Committee on any matters within the powers and duties of the Area Committee, subject to the exclusions set out in the Code of Practice.

 

Three questions were submitted relating to the Rosehill Primary School and one question submitted relating to the Marple Civic Society as follows: -

 

Rosehill Primary School: -

·         Residents only parking on Elmfield Drive;

·         School traffic and parking;

·         School would be closing the playground;

·         Multi agency approach to find a solution; and

·         Stockport Council failing to address the issues raised.

 

In response, it was stated that the issue relating to Rosehill Primary School and Elmfield Drive has been raised previously with the relevant council department but it is taking some time to resolve. This issue has now been magnified by the social distancing rules and sanitising practices put in place by the school. Contact has been made with the school asking the school to cease the queuing system due to the feedback received from residents and parents. Arrangements are now being made to continue engaging with the school to seek a resolution in this matter. A formal response would be shared with the questioners and the Committee. 

 

Marple Civic Society: -

·         20mph limit on Stockport Roads;

·         Councillors being consulted;

·         Road humps were outdated;

·         Cost benefit analysis; and

·         Proposed limited measures being assessed.

 

In response, it was stated that there was limited consultation with ward councillors but this was raised with the relevant Cabinet Member who acknowledged the lack of consultation. It was stated that the information was publicised on the Council’s website and was happening in seven other districts across the borough as a result of time limited spending being attached to the funding provided by Transport for Greater Manchester. A formal response would be shared with the questioner and the Committee.

o   New women’s cricket team started training in the summer;

o   It was currently women’s cricket month;

o   It was the first time that women’s cricket was being televised in 25 years with the England Women’s Team playing the West Indies Women’s Team;

o   It’s a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet new people, have fun, be competitive and get some exercise;

o   Next season the Hawk Green Women’s Cricket Team would be competing in the Cheshire Cricket Women’s League in the development league;

o   Winter training season will be underway soon and anyone would be welcomed to join the team on Tuesdays (7.30pm – 9.00pm) at Marple College Sports Hall from 2November 2020.

o   If anyone wanted to get in touch with the team, they could email hawkgreenwcc@gmail.com

 

RESOLVED – That Vicki Morris be thanked for her attendance.

 

·         Annette Sharp and Chris Buckley representing the Churches Together in Marple and the Marple, Mellor & Marple Bridge Energy Saving Strategy (MESS) attended the meeting and provided information relating to “Litter in Marple” and highlighted the following: -

 

o   Agree with looking at preventative and educational campaigns like “not dropping it or tipping it” across the Marple area;

o   Churches in the area would be happy to support any initiative in the borough and also developing eco task groups to support the efforts;

o   There are not enough places to put litter in Marple, because they are either full or not enough;

o   Bins should be more frequently emptied across the area;

o   Consideration should be given to enforcement for littering in the area which could be a dis-incentive for littering;

o   Education in schools and online could raise awareness about litter;

o   Council employees and volunteers are the only two groups of people who clean litter so there needs to be more engagement with people to increase the number of volunteers; and

o   Covid-19 should not prevent people from picking up the litter, as gloves would be required, it would be done outside, observing 2 metres distancing would be practiced as well as hand sanitising.

 

The following comments were made/issues raised: -

 

o   Contact could be made with Marple Hall School who have a ‘litter picking group’ and could get them involved.

o   Arrangements could be made to have a weekly litter pick for anytime in any areas. People could register and training could be provided with litter picks, bin liners and a badge being provided.

o   The litter initiative could be called the “Once a Week Litter Pick” with promotion being done on social media to raise awareness and see if anyone would be interested.

o   Other Area Committee initiatives could be linked together with the litter-picking for improving Marple including flytipping and the increasing of the wild-flowering of the verges and more rural spaces across Marple.

 

Councillor Allan informed the Committee that the initiative had been shared with the Neighbourhood Services team and they were very supportive and willing to assist.

 

RESOLVED – That Annette Sharp and Chris Buckley be thanked for their attendance.

Residents Parking Report pdf icon PDF 115 KB

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

 

NOTE: This item has been placed on the agenda following a recommendation of the Communities & Housing Scrutiny Committee.

 

The Council placed a moratorium on the introduction of any new resident parking schemes in 2019 to enable a full review of the existing approach to be taken. This review was required as elements of the existing policy were not working effectively and were not meeting the needs of residents. There were also concerns relating to the impact of schemes on local services and the town and district centres. In order to ensure a coordinated approach, it was agreed that all policies and procedures relating to residents parking, including the Town Centre, would be reviewed.

 

In light of the above, the purpose of this paper is:

 

·         To seek comments on the proposed revised principles to guide future parking policy decisions

·         To seek feedback on the proposed changes to resident parking policy and town centre parking policy to reflect the revised principles.

 

The Area Committee is recommended to comment on and note the report.

 

Officer contact: Mark Glynn on 0161-474-3700 or email: mark.glynn@stockport.gov.uk

Additional documents:

Minutes:

A representative of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) detailing proposed revised principles to guide future parking policy decisions and seeking feedback on the proposed changes to resident parking policy and town centre parking policy to reflect the revised principles.

 

The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·         It was suggested that the proposal to provide councillors with a free permit covering all residents parking zones in their wards and cabinet members to park across the borough should be removed from the proposed scheme.

·         Members welcomed the flexible approach adopted in the report by having single road schemes, but concern was expressed regarding looking at a broader scheme to avoid problems six months later.

·         It was commented that there was no mention of the residents parking schemes with permits to use public car parks and not pay.

·         Concern was expressed regarding the resident parking schemes that had been paused should now be pushed through as a matter of priority.

·         Members expressed their disappointment with having to fund the survey costs despite having to wait over a year for other schemes to be brought forward which could have meant that the Area Committee spreads the cost over a longer period.

·         It was noted that the Marple Town Centre attracted a lot of shoppers with lots of residential properties nearby that caused problems with parking.

 

RESOLVED – That the report be deferred to the next meeting of the Area Committee.

2019 Flooding draft investigation report pdf icon PDF 181 KB

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

 

On the last week of July and first week of August 2019, extreme rainfall events hit parts of north-west England and the south Pennines, with flooding observed across Greater Manchester and Cheshire. The main event day was 31st July 2019.

 

This report presents the various aspects of the flood events in July and specifically incorporates the draft Independent Section 19 Investigation Report in accordance with the Flood & Water Management Act (FWMA) 2010 on the investigation into the flooding events undertaken independently by Mott MacDonald Consulting Engineers.

 

The Area Committee is recommended to comment on and note the report.

 

Officer contact: Mark Glynn on 0161-474-3700 or email: mark.glynn@stockport.gov.uk or Sue Stevenson on 0161 474 4351 or email: sue.stevenson@stockport.gov.uk

Additional documents:

Minutes:

A representative of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) presenting the various aspects of the flood events that occurred on the last week of July and first week of August 2019 and specifically incorporated the draft Independent Section 19 Investigation Report in accordance with the Flood & Water Management Act (FWMA) 2010 on the investigation into the flooding events that had been undertaken independently by Mott MacDonald Consulting Engineers.

 

The following comments were made/ issues raised:-

 

·         Clarification was sought regarding what happens next and whether there was a strategic response to the report that addresses the recommendations. In response, it was noted that a lot of work has been undertaken by the Council over the last year in response and there was a programme and an approach in place but it was expensive to do without the resources and budget.

·         Concern was also expressed regarding some aspects of the report that had already appeared in the 2016 report so had not yet been addressed. In response, it was noted that the problems were being addressed and data has been collated to respond to previous reports and this report would be finalised by December 2020 with more details included with a response.

·         It was noted that no flood alerts were received by the Environmental Agency despite the Goyt in Stockport. In response, it was noted that the trigger was the Mersey and because of the pattern of the rivers it was too late to issue any warnings, but discussions were being held about it with the Environmental Agency.

·         It was suggested that the report needed to be made accessible to all with less legal jargons and references.

·         It was also noted that there was also flooding in High Lane including Andrew Lane that flooded houses on the opposite side of the road including Linton Drive.

·         Clarification was sought regarding the number of gully wagons were operational in Stockport. In response, it was noted that there were two gully wagons but it would not have caused any flooding due to the intensity of the rain.

 

Members were encouraged to submit any additional concerns or omissions from the report directly to the Head of Highways and Transportation for consideration and to be included in the final report.

 

RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
