Have your say on Cheshire-Manchester transport plans

There are just two weeks left for Cheshire East residents to comment on the proposed refresh of transport plans for the north of the borough.

Cheshire East Council and Stockport Council have extended the deadline for residents and businesses to have their say on the strategic transport and highways proposals that can make travel between Greater Manchester and Cheshire East a whole lot smoother.

Known as Semmms, the South East Manchester Multi-Modal Strategy seeks to make all forms of travel – whether by car, bus, rail, bike or on foot – a more pleasurable and less stressful experience for the public.

The strategy sets out plans for continuing infrastructure development up until 2040, across the boundaries of south Manchester, north east Cheshire and Stockport – one of the busiest commuter belts in the region.

Developing an efficient network and infrastructure is critical to building a successful economy and the input of transport and road users, pedestrians and cyclists to the consultation currently taking place is a vital element of the whole process.

You have until 16 July to add your views to the consultation.

The Semmm strategy also includes parts of Derbyshire and Tameside and was first drawn up in 2001.
