The second Hazel Grove Ward Committee took place on Wednesday night. We are happy to say it had a larger number of residents than the first!
There was one question submitted about fears about Housing developments behind Sandown Rd on the racecourse estate. The short answer, given by the Tory Chair of the Committee, was that there were no current plans for development there. However, the longer answer is that that site does appear on a wish list connected to the Greater Manchester Spacial Framework – a project partly aimed at tackling lack of housing. There is no developer or project in the pipeline. But somebody wants to build there one day. So it is worth being vigilant.
The main item was more of a workshop, with local residents putting forward ideas for a wish list of road & traffic improvements following the A6 MARR road opening. There were lots of good ideas. Some of which are listed below.
Fixing the filter lane bottlenecks on Torkington & Commercial Rd
New cycle lanes
Potential rerouting of one way system on Grundey & Chester Rds
20mph zone for racecourse estate
