8.4  Middlewood Way Lighting

A further update was received from Cheshire East highways and given by the clerk verbally. At the full council meeting on it was resolved to approve solar lights for part of the Middlewood Way at the cost of £37, 047.38.

This was communicated to Cheshire East Highways in June after the meeting. The clerk has pursued CE Highways and today we have been advised that in order to be able to carry out the installation of a scheme along this section of the Middlewood Way, will require a full and comprehensive Lighting Design to be carried out as it needs to meet the British Standards for Lighting BS5489 & PLG23. CEC can quote us for the lighting design and then quote for the Installation/Construction based upon that.

The committee was extremely disappointed, as the council has been pursuing this project for 2 years, and since it was approved at the price CEC Highways have given the committee expected the work would be in progress. This is part of the active travel response from Macclesfield Town Council

.

Resolved: The clerk to contact CEC Chief Officer, Chair of the Highways and Transport Committee and the leader of the Council to try and resolve this situation. Cllr Wilson was also approved to speak at CEC full council meeting if the matter was not resolved.
