As many residents will have noticed, yesterday afternoon a sinkhole appeared on Wilmslow Road, on the section between the Tower Garage and Piccolino's.
Safety barriers have been put in place by engineers from Cheshire East Highways who have carried out in initial inspection of the site.
Councillor Craig Browne said "Early indications suggest that the sinkhole is the result of a collapsed sewer (which falls under the responsibility of United Utilities).
"United Utilities have been informed and are expected on site shortly to carry out a more detailed investigation. Assuming a sewer collapse is confirmed, United Utilities will then bear the responsibility for carrying out any subsequent repair works.
"In the meantime, I am in regular communication with Cheshire East Highways and will provide an update when there is more information to share.
