We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

Between Wednesday 13th January and Friday 12th February 2021, we asked you for your views on the existing traffic calming measures along Windlehurst Road between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Broadhurst’s Bridge. 

You said

Part 1 of the response form focused on traffic calming along Windlehurst Road (A6 to Broadhurst’s Bridge) as a whole.

A total of 932 online and written response forms were received in response to the consultation. The results indicate that the majority (81%) of respondents agree that traffic calming on Windlehurst Road should be reviewed and removed in some sections. 

Part 2 of the response form focused on the traffic calming along Windlehurst Road within the following two sections: Section 1 - Between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Andrew Lane; and Section 2 - Between Andrew Lane and Broadhurst’s Bridge (Macclesfield Canal).

77% and 89% of respondents respectively for Section 1 and 2 identified that they believe traffic calming should be removed within these Sections. Furthermore, 80% and 86% of respondents respectively for Section 1 and 2 identified that they do not like driving along Windlehurst Road. Very few respondents identified that they feel more comfortable walking or cycling along Windlehurst Road.  

We did

The analysis of the consultation has found that approximately half of the responses received to this public consultation were from residents who live outside the High Lane area. It is considered likely that these residents utilise Windlehurst Road as a driving route and would not experience the impacts of speeding along Windlehurst Road to the same extent as the residents who live alongside or adjacent to the road who are directly affected daily.

Therefore, it has been recommended that additional analysis is undertaken to better understand the various perspectives based on geographical locations prior to any decisions being made regarding the retention or removal of the existing traffic calming measures along Windlehurst Road.

We asked

We asked for your views on proposed changes to a number of SEND support services in Stockport funded by the High Needs Funding block of the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG).

You said

We had over 674 responses to the consultation from a range of different stakeholders.

We did

We are now in the process of considering the outcomes of the consultation and beginning to work up the proposals that will be further developed to be taken forward later in the year. For more information please email

We asked

We asked for your thoughts on a proposed cycle route, a school streets pilot, a village 'parklet' and councillor lane improvements.

You said

The consultation asked for feedback on the proposed introduction of a new cycle track linking Whitegates Road to Ashfield Road and Massie Street car park. There was a total of 25 respondents of which 69% agreed.

Feedback was sought for a 'school street' pilot on Ashfield Crescent for Cheadle Primary School which would prevent motor vehicles using the road between school drop off/pick up times. There was a total of 26 respondents of which 69% agreed.

The consultation also asked for feedback on a proposed new 'parklet' to provide an attractive place to sit and parking for cycles on/ near to Cheadle high street. From the 26 respondents, 63% agreed.

Furthermore, the consultation asked for opinions on improvements to the appearance of the shopping parade, including new trees, cycle parking and seating. From the 29 respondents, 66% agreed with the recommendations.

We did

After consideration from the feedback received from the consultation, we have begun to progress the Ashfield Road Segregated Cycle route.

The overall positive feedback from the 'school street' pilot means that we have begun detailed designs for construction.

In response to the feedback received for the 'parklet' we are undergoing further assessment into the feasibility of an alternative position on the high street, to ensure the safest location.

The overall positive support for the Lane Improvements has meant that the proposal has been taken forward for detailed design and construction. Two bollards have been added to the proposal to prevent footway parking on the eastern side of York Close.
