The Parish Council has been contacted by a number of residents concerned about the extent of the tree works at Nancy’s Wood and we understand the concern.
The Parish Council commissions regular arboricultural reports on the trees under its care and programmes the required tree works. At the same time, the council has also put in place a management plan for Nancy’s Wood which will see it’s ecology improved over the coming years.
The latest tree survey identified a number of trees for felling due to a shortened life expectancy / poor form. These works have been undertaken and leave a large part of the woodland open. The Parish Council will be undertaking a comprehensive planting programme later this year to replace the trees, plant additional understory shrubs and to plant wildflowers too.
You can view the tree survey here: Gawsworth Tree Survey 2020

Cheshire East Council will be carrying out structural patching along Congleton Road, Gawsworth and will take approximately 13 days to complete, commencing from 13 October 2020.
The scheme has been carefully planned to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and members of the travelling public.
When it’s happening
The works are programmed to begin from Tuesday 13 October to Thursday 29 October 2020 between the hours of 09:30 – 16:30 (excluding weekends). Please note that occasionally the works have to be changed at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather conditions or logistics.
Under current Health & Safety legislation and for the safety of our workforce and members of the public, it will be necessary for a road closure to be in place during the works.
Every effort will be made to maintain vehicular access to residents and businesses, but there will inevitably be some inconvenience. For enquiries contact Cheshire East Highways on 0300 123 5020.

The Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan has advanced to the next stage after being submitted to Cheshire East Council. The plan is now subject to a six-week consultation (Regulation 16 Consultation) where residents are able to submit their comments on the proposed plan directly to Cheshire East Council.
All comments received in this consultation will be considered by an independent Planning Examiner who will decide whether changes are required to the plan’s policies.
As the plan progresses, the weight it carries in planning decisions builds and already Cheshire East Council will begin noting the policies in the emerging plan when appraising applications.
The Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan and all associated documents may be accessed, downloaded and viewed via the Neighbourhood Planning pages of Cheshire East Council’s website: Gawsworth Neighbourhood Plan webpage

In March 2019 the Parish Council submitted a detailed report on the community’s concerns about highway safety on the A536. The report, available below, highlighted that between October 2012 and May 2017 there were 64 personal injury accidents on a 12km stretch of the A536 between Congleton and Macclesfield.
The report contained suggestions to improve highway safety. This report was submitted to Cheshire East Highways Officers – no response was received.
The Parish Council has continued to chase Cheshire East for a response, but to date none has been recieved.
Doorstep delivery of milk and more by Heather, Dennis and Danny has been something Gawsworth residents have valued for very many years.
The Newton family are going to extraordinary lengths to keep us supplied during the crisis. They have over 200 new customers and now serve almost 1000 households. Danny did a great job for Newtons and for Gawsworth when he was interviewed on BBC North West recently.
We are all so grateful and so proud of the Newtons Dairy team.
Follow them on Facebook and meet the cows that make your milk.
