am i looking at the proposal incorrectly, or if i live near the Ring o Bells, to go towards the Strines i have to turn left onto Stockport Road, then a right, then another right, passed Asda, then a left
If i am correct, then can i ask what qualifications do these people have to think up such stupid proposals.
Why not go the whole hog, ban the car and turn the clock back 100 years...
Or, may be i am just misreading the map....

Maybe Stockport are colluding with the greater Manchester Clean air zone, trying to get everyone out if there cars and into 4x4's to make life atleast bearable with all the humps they want ?
I only wish there was collusion or a plan @GM ... sadly I think it's just a ship of fools

So anyone who lives, say, on Winnington Road who wants to get to Stockport will be 'encouraged' to use all the back roads to get to Stockport Road.  Makes perfect sense...
and then they can smother all those roads with speed humps when the residents kick off because motorists are using the roads as rat-runs. Never seen anything in the highways regulations or highway code describing what constitues a rat-run, but is seems to be used all to often as a reason to trash public highways with speed humps.

Them trying to justify and explain the scheme might be more like watching paint dry, unless it's the common term for painting a wall with lime ?.

I can't actually fathom what they are trying to achieve, even the widening the footpath in the park seems a bit over the top for a small village such as Marple.

Even then they don't seem to have factored in the possible leisure centre move to the park and the necessary traffic to make it viable.

Nearly missed it again due to ongoing personal distractions!

The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 26 January has been published.

The meeting starts at 6pm in the Town Hall Council Chamber.

Capability Fund – Marple District Centre Walking and Cycling Improvements

Agenda item 8 covers two significant options being proposed for further development that aim to amend Marple's Town Centre roads to accommodate improved cycling access. This is the long-awaited Atkins Report, which is two years late. One option includes a one way "gyratory" involving Stockport Road, Station Road and Hollins Lane, the other closing Church Lane at the Stockport Road junction but making it a two way road with access from Hibbert Lane (if I've understood it right).



The Local Walk-Ride Marple Group have been excluded from discussions with the council about these proposals and think there are significant issues that need to be clarified before it makes sense for options in the report to be developed. They have asked councillors to defer it until their questions have been answered.

This is the introduction to the agenda item:

The report provides a summary of two separate options for proposals to improve cycling and walking in Marple District Centre as part of the Capability Fund. The proposals aim to provide improved infrastructure and connectivity for cycling and walking with the minimum of detriment to traffic operation in Marple. Some early-stage design work has been undertaken to check that the proposals presented in this report are feasible, however no consultation has been undertaken.



The Area Committee is requested to consider the contents of the report and recommend that the Cabinet Member (Economy & Regeneration) approves the development of one or both of the different approaches (Options 1 and 2) and subsequent consultation for the proposals.

Here are some direct links to the documents:

Marple Area Committee Meeting of 1st December 2021

Unfortunately I was indisposed in the period leading up to the last Marple Area Committee on Wednesday 1st December, so I was unable to promote it as normal.

It was a long one, over 4 hours and 20 minutes, mainly due to the Garden House Planning Application.

If you missed it like me and want to catch-up you can do so here: https://stockport.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/616722
