Tarporley Parish Council

Village parking

Over 200 surveys were completed and returned to the Parish Council giving the views of local residents on how parking could be improved on the High Street.  The results of the survey showed a consensus supporting the introduction of time limited parking on both sides of the high street between Monday and Friday. Taking these results into consideration and also the experience and knowledge from the highways department of CWAC, plans are now being drawn up for a trial scheme to be implemented on the high street. The scheme seeks to address several issues including improved traffic flow and an increase in the turnover of high street parking spaces. Additional consultation will be publicised over the coming weeks before any scheme is introduced, please check the Parish Council website and notice board for updates.


Tarporley Hospitals Giving Tree

Thanks to the contact made by the Parish Council with Taylor Wimpey (the developers building the new houses off Brook Rd), the first step has been taken towards the installation of a Giving Tree at Tarporley War Memorial Hospital. Taylor Wimpey kindly supplied the MDF and the man power to install the board on the wall in the reception area, on which a tree is to be painted (early July) by Lorna Green. By giving a donation towards the valuable work of the Hospital, members of the public will be able to have their name or that of a relative inscribed on a leaf.  For more information, please contact Karen Urmston at the Hospital  Tel 01829  732436  fundraising@tarporleyhospital.co.uk

New Faces

This month we welcome two new faces to our community. Abigail Webb has become the Parish Council’s first Projects Coordinator, she will be working with our current clerk, Ann Wright, to coordinate the many projects the Parish Council wishes to undertake over the next year or two. Some projects arise from the actions identified in the Neighbourhood Plan; others from our interest in the Best Kept Village Competition and others involve the amenities we provide, such as the Christmas lights, the playground behind the community centre and what will be the new leisure land off Brook Rd.   Abigail can be contacted at projects@tarporley.org.uk

We also have a new policeman covering our area. PC Philip Monks has taken over from PC Wayne Thomas as the new beat manager for the Tarporley area. He can be contacted at Philip.monks@cheshire.pnn.police.uk.  He will be supervising the work of our PCSO Kenneth Williamson Kenneth.williamson@cheshire.pnn.police.uk
