Labour led Cheshire East Council has confirmed the Poynton recycling centre will not be closed, despite a decade of central government cuts being imposed on local government. This decision was taken following a consultation period during which Poynton Labour Group raised considerable concerns with a number of Cheshire East councillors. Thanks also to all the people in Poynton who completed the survey and also posted about it on social media.

Local transport serving Poynton is also undergoing a review and again the Labour Group have submitted a comprehensive response to these proposals directly to Sam Corcoran, the Labour Leader of Cheshire East Council. Have your say directly and make your views known about this and parking; use the survey on the Cheshire East web site. We can make Poynton even better when we work together.

Poynton and Disley Labour Group are starting a pollution monitoring project around our Poynton schools and the centre. We are in the process of purchasing a mobile air quality monitor so if you see us around the area with the kit then that’s what it’s all about.
