A committee of Audlem parish councillors has been set up to consider places for up to fifteen kissing gates around the area. These gates would help walkers, wheel chair users and others who have difficulty with stiles to get around the network of village footpaths.
Cllr. Frances Mary Christie said at last week's Parish Council meeting that she thought the gates were a great idea after lobbying her friends who use the footpaths. The new gates would replace stiles making it easier to cross fields while keeping live-stock off the roads.
Funding for the gates from Cheshire County Council has run out at present but new grants are being sought by the Countryside Access Team Development Officer at the County Council, Amy Rushton. She said: "If Audlem applies for the new gates there is a good chance of them getting funding in the future."
