Further developments took place over the noise levels from the M6 and pollution in general  in Cranage.

Having received requests from several residents

The council agreed to form a committee with residents who had attended to take the matter forward, and to look at ways and costs to establish a noise survey.

Resident Stuart Jackson had contacted Cheshire east Councillor Andrew Kolker over the article in the recent newsletter to offer his expert advice, and suggested a company based in Bolton could be contacted who have a vast experience on environmental matters.

The committee at present is

  • Andrew Kolker Cheshire east councillor
  • Mike Hodge cranage parish councillor
  • Stuart Jackson resident
  • Inam  Choudry  resident
  • Peter Wild resident

Given the recent revelations over the pollution data collated by Cheshire east officers now admitted to have been tampered with, it’s imperative that a properly conducted survey is carried out by an independent company, to establish if a serious problem exists over the air quality and noise in Cranage.

Peter Wild stated after the parish meeting that the forming of this committee is a positive first step on a very long road that hopefully will lead to a positive outcome that improves the lives of the residents of Cranage.
