Local councillors want your views on priorities for Wilmslow


Following their success in May's local elections, Residents of Wilmslow (RoW) are undertaking a brief survey to assess the community views on certain priorities.

This is a first survey that the group, who now hold all 5 Wilmslow seats at Cheshire East Council as well as all 15 seats on Wilmslow Town Council, have undertaken. The feedback will influence whether they use this approach in the future.

A spokesperson for Residents of Wilmslow said "RoW would like to thank everyone who took part in the May elections and, as part of the commitment to engage with the community, would ask for your time in completing the following survey to assess community views."

The survey should take less than 2 minutes of your time and asks residents about their attendance at the various community services and events which occur in Wilmslow and their priorities for the town.

I worry about town centre planners form London employed rather than local companies who pay rates to Cheshire. The plans are over-wordy as if the planner is being paid by the ton of verbiage. Space is wasted on discussion of history, already known to the locals.
Our priorities are REGULAR MAINTENANCE.
The road gullies (grids) need an annual cleaning. Many on A roads are silted up so that material will clog the sewers and require the road to be dug up to clear. My suburban road is the same.
The nonsense of changing traffic lights to LEDs (not done in Westminster, London) and now changing back to the long-lasting Rough Service GLS lamps was costly. The fact that new traffic lamp-houses needed to be provided shows the incompetence of planning. The fact that equipment is made outside the UK is outrageous and bleeds us of Sterling. Money was wasted in Zonal switching on/off of suburban lighting for it never worked and we went back to the trusted LDR operation. Nobody warned of transients caused by lightning. I worry about the competence of our Highways department. Stop out-sourcing; it is costly and sadly quality isn't there.

Raymond - thank you for your comments. Also, everyone else who has completed the survey, thank you for doing so.
I'm really keen to get as many responses as possible so if you haven't already, then please do spend a couple of minutes filling it it via the above link. Also, please feel free to share it in any local community groups or with neighbours. The more responses, the better informed we are!
