Poynton’s Cheshire East councillors – Howard Murray and Jos Saunders in Poynton East, and Mike Beanland and Mike Sewart in Poynton West – have campaigned against plans to greatly reduce local bus services. Cheshire East consulted on the future of about 50 separate routes, and the two Poynton services – the P1 and 392/3 – were third and fourth of the number of responses from the public in Cheshire East’s recent consultation. The top two services were in Crewe, which has a much larger population.

No decisions have yet been taken on which services will be changed. A report will go to the Council’s cabinet around November, with any changes taking effect from 1st April 2018.

We would like to thank everyone from Poynton who took part in the consultation and helped to support our local bus services.
