Heaton Chapel Active Neighbourhood

Closed 6 Feb 2022

Opened 17 Jan 2022


In October 2020, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) undertook a consultation on Active Neighbourhoods, following the initial consultation Heaton Chapel was picked to run an Active Neighbourhood trial.

An Active Neighbourhood is aimed at helping local residents to make short trips by foot, bicycle or public transport which can be achieved through new crossings, new walking and cycling routes and measures to prevent ‘rat-running’, along with a variety of other measures.

A set of temporary measures were installed in Heaton Chapel to see how they could help reduce through traffic, make the streets safer and more pleasant for walking and cycling and cut out ‘rat-running’.

The temporary measures are shown by the coloured dots in the map on the following page.

Following a three-month trial these measures have now been removed. This questionnaire has been designed to capture how effective you found these measures and whether any of the measures should be installed permanently.

How to provide your comments:

You can complete the questionnaire, which will take between 10 and 15 minutes. The consultation is open until Sunday 6 February 2022.

If you have any questions or concerns about the questionnaire or to request copies of the consultation document and questionnaire please contact activeheatons@stockport.gov.uk or 0161 217 6043.
