Local update November 15th

Rachel Bailey Audlem Ward Cheshire East Councillor

I regularly attend Audlem Parish Council and am grateful for the 'standing agenda item' where I aminvited to provide an update of my work as the Cheshire Councillor for the Audlem Ward.

At Monday night's meeting, I promised to 'be brief' but then listed numerous matters which led me to think it timely to offer an update to you.

I am pleased to say that:

  • the surface on Mount Pleasant, off Stafford Street, has been repaired.
  • a highway fault on Cheshire Street adjacent to 'Anwyl' identified as causing 'vibration to properties' has also been attended to.

I continue to seek solutions in relation to:

  • flooding at the old railway bridge Swanbach – I am due to meet with the highways team next week in this regard; I am concerned that Cheshire East's announced Q1 overspend of 11 million plus, will further compromise necessary repairs here. Excuse the pun but this issue is literally a 'drain' on resources!
  • drainage issues on Green Lane requiring 'temporary' traffic lights.
  • provision of safe crossing on Cheshire Street for families accessing Audlem St James Primary School and the Village Centre, from Anywl.
  • Blocked gulleys!

Thank you to everyone who has kept me up to date on 'Airband' proposals. I continue to seek
clarity on this, eg, which bits are subsidised, as part of the Cheshire & Warrington LEP bid to
improve rural connectivity, and which bits are commercial.

Finally, for now, I am working with a neighbouring councillor to seek replacement of white lines
and the bollard replacement at the triangle junction of Park and Shrewbridge Road.
