Milton Park award

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

Milton Park in Alsager has won a national award and retained its Green Flag status.  The popular park in Crewe Road has achieved the top award – the international quality mark for parks and green spaces in a record-breaking year for the Green Flag award which marks its Silver Jubilee.  The prestigious award means Milton Park has one of the best-maintained public green spaces in the UK.

Friends of Milton Park, a group set up to look after the park, has publicly thanked ANSA and its volunteers who have helped achieve the coveted award.

The park has an ornamental sunken garden, a skate park and a children's play area and plays host to a number of events such as the music festival and carnival.

HS2

With thanks to Alsager Nub News

CHESHIRE East Council is set to modify its plans for the HS2 Hub in Crewe – including a bridge scheme across the railways from Gresty Road to Weston Road.  Planners say they need to adapt to the impact of the pandemic and a shift in government funding opportunities so they can continue to press for regeneration in the town.

The council says the changes will enable its HS2 programme "to maximise the significant regeneration and investment opportunities now available".

Jayne Traverse, the council's executive director – place, admitted: "The pandemic has had wide-ranging impacts, including on travel behaviours, working patterns and the market for new commercial development across the country.  These factors mean that elements of our plans are likely to take longer to realise and the planning policy and infrastructure plans developed pre-pandemic need to be reviewed to reflect this and establish the best way forward for Crewe and its communities, the wider borough and region."

Civilised political discourse

With thanks to Alsager Chronicle

Michael Unett, Chair of Alsager Town Council, and Cheshire East Councillors, have all pleaded for political discourse to be conducted in a more civilised manner, both in council chambers and on social media.  Michael Unett has also called for local councils to have more sanctions available to them to control unruly councillors.
