Strangely RSH I have just done that, at least to a potential Councillor  who is about to have a meeting with Council officials concerning roads and who has promised to bring up the subject. 

Let us hope she will not simply accept whatever excuse the Council has for not catering for those who want to use Rollins Lane as an acceptable off road route between Compstall and Marple and who wish to support the Government's desire to encourage walking and cycling.
Ask him about the Bridge at the keg thats still not been done .thats a walking route .

I would assume the existing site is one of the six.

3.   I suggested 6 sites to the Council and I believe all have been considered.  All are within half a mile of the present baths, most much closer.

Events / Resurfacing Works on Empress Avenue [4 April +approx 4 days]
« Last post by admin on Today at 06:36:40 AM »
We have been given advance notice of the following roadworks on Empress Avenue:

Stockport Council will be carrying out carriageway resurfacing works on Empress Avenue, Marple (full length), these works will be carried out by their Alliance partner, Tarmac Ltd.

This work is anticipated to commence on the 4th April for up to four days, weather permitting, the work will be carried out between 8:30AM to 4.30PM, subject to the necessary permissions being obtained via TfGM and the Council’s streetworks team.

During the times stated above it will be necessary to restrict traffic movements on Empress Avenue using a temporary road closure notice. These measures are in place to minimise disruption to residents and to allow safe working operations to take place.

Access to properties and businesses in the working area will be maintained where possible however it may be restricted for certain periods as the work progresses.

Properties directly affected by this work will receive a letter explaining the scope of the work and timescales involved in due course.

Information boards will also be erected on site and at other key points in the surrounding area advising road users of the planned work.

Although some local disruption is inevitable this will be kept to a minimum by staff on site.

 If you have any queries regarding the proposed resurfacing and repair work, please call 0161 474 2420.

Miscellaneous / Stockport Museum
« Last post by Mr Marple on Yesterday at 04:36:04 PM »
Today I went to Staircase house and the Stockport museum.

After only a few minutes into the museum, I found a TV/monitor playing a video starring a certain Mark Whittaker.

Guess what it was about??

I hope I can clarify and explain some things on this.

On the Gym first of all. It will help to know Life Leisure is not the Council. They are separate bodies. Life Leisure has made the decision on the gym hours, not the council. I’ve advised residents who’ve already contacted me about this to complain direct to Life Leisure. There is no plan to close the gym, and I believe the Council have asked for it to remain until a new facility is built or something forces it to close down such as structural damage or Health and Safety.

On the Pool:

1.   A meeting was held a few months ago between all local councillors, the Senior Officer responsible in the Council and the Labour cabinet Member responsible. It was agreed at this meeting that all parties would work together to ensure there is a pool with leisure facility in Marple. That is a commitment from all parties but we need 1. a site 2. the cash and 3. public acceptance of the ultimate proposal.

2.   The council commissioned the feasibility study which in the first stage has looked at possible sites, the costs involved, any necessary land purchase, size of a facility and where the cash would come from. The announcement says that has been completed so all these are feasible. They are moving to the next stage.

3.   I suggested 6 sites to the Council and I believe all have been considered.  All are within half a mile of the present baths, most much closer.

4.   The Neighbourhood Plan team proposed a new facility and a site, before the closure was known. This has been public for a long time and in every plan draft. I led that team and the preferred option was the Memorial Park. The park has the room without going into any green space, but a good facility would need the involvement, support and co-operation of the library, the occupants of the hall, the Police, the Clinic (NHS) the Scouts and the Senior Citizens’ Hall. Not all of this land is owned by the Council. I stress that was the Neighbourhood Plan opinion, not a decision!

5.   The next stage of the feasibility will include consulting relevant expert and involved bodies on whichever are now felt to be the best sites. Those consultations will be in confidence, for obvious reasons. The council do not want to propose anything until these parties have had their full say, otherwise any proposals would potentially be seriously flawed. After this, optional  plans will be drawn up.

6.   This should result in a plan and a series of options for consultation with the public. Residents will be consulted.

7.   Refurbishing the old baths is not off the table, and in my opinion remains an option if a new facility is impossible.
 
I’m trying to keep people informed; I’ve held a surgery at Romiley baths for Marple swimmers and I get asked every time I go there three times a week. I’ve also tried to keep in touch with those who contacted me via my council email. People are welcome to do this at any time via my Councillor contacts or surgeries in the area.
Thank you for very infomative update .
