The National Trust are calling for the speed limit to be reduced on a stretch of Macclesfield Road.
Speaking at the Parish Council meeting on Monday, 13th November, Councillor Craig Browne informed his fellow councillors that the National Trust has produced a report which supported the need for a speed reduction on a section of Macclesfield Road, heading out of the village towards Over Alderley.
He said "This has become a more pertinent issue recently in the other direction, coming towards Alderley Edge, as vehicles travelling at 60mph suddenly find themselves in a 30mph limit with parked cars blocking the road shortly after the drivers pass the brow of the hill."
Councillor Browne has a meeting this week with Chris Widger, Countryside Manager at the National Trust, and our PCSO Chris Hopkins to discuss a proposal to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 40mph from the top of hill (where the 'birdcages' are) to the junction with Finlow Hill Lane.
