Public Questions

The meeting was paused for public questions.

 

Richard Watson from the Civic Society spoke about the civic awards which the grant will go towards including new buildings and activities. Funding comes in through subscriptions and town walks. Ceramic plaques will be given to the award winners and it aids publicity and is a public celebration.

Cllr Hutchinson asked if the Macc Express had ever sponsored the awards. Keith replied that they sponsored in kind with free publicity.

Cllr Bennett-Wake asked what were the 3 top awards in recent times, the reply was the Flower House, the Town Council for the blooms and the Crossings development by Peaks and Plains.

 

Emily Gunnion from Cre8 talked about how the grant is to renew the cooking equipment, for a group born out of the covid lockdowns, based at St. Barnabas Church for a cooking community on a Friday night. Food is also provided on a Tuesday to the community group in the warm spaces and training and cooking skills are taught.

Jeff an attendee said how much it had helped him, and he knew other men who are widowed who it has helped socially also.

Cllr Bennett- Wake said how wonderful the project was, she asked if they were buying airfryers and Emily said they were buying a range of equipment that people have at home.

Cllr Wilcock said there was equipment the Council had paid for that could be repurposed, the Town Clerk will sort out.

Cllr Mike Hutchison asked how many people were attending, which is about 8. He also asked about the dishwashers- one is to go in St Barnabas and one to go at Cre8.

Cllr Harewood commended Cre8 on the project.

 

Dan Boneham spoke of their grant to run Crucial Crew events, which are multi agency safety events for year 6 children. Planning to run event 15th April – 24th April 2024, this grant will go towards transport and venue costs.

Cllr Wilcock asked where the event would be held, the answer was the Rugby Club.

Cllr Hutchison asked how many kids attended and the answer was over 800.

Cllr Thompson asked about the handbook and had they looked at digital options. Dan said they have looked at apps, but that the handbooks were better, but the teachers have a portal they can use with the whiteboards.

Cllr Bennett-Wake felt the handbooks were great as not all children have access to devices.

Cllr Hutchison asked about evaluation, Dan provided an evaluation report to the Cllrs.

 

Ann Wright, attended from Just Drop In, for young people, this grant is for ‘Have Your Say’ day which is all about young people’s participation. This is held in conjunction with the Silk Museum. The grant is to help fund 3 of the activities and it is open to all young people.

Cllr Bennett-Wake thanked Ann for the wonderful work they do with young people, she said its very commendable that they were looking for their opinions.

She asked how many young people they support, which is over 1000 annually, and 56% of them were from Macclesfield.

Cllr Hutchison asked about how many people will attend and the target is 50 young people. The young people’s opinion will make up part of the strategy for Just Drop In.

Cllr Hutchison said the council were very keen to get the views of young people and Ann said she was more than happy to put that on the agenda for the day.

 

Macclesfield College grant was to provide outdoor equipment so students can have fun when not in class. They would like to have a outdoor table tennis table, this is something the students have wanted, it will help them get outside and aid wellbeing.

The site also includes the Academy and Park Lane School, and they can also use it.

Cllr Hutchison said as an ex teacher they had them at his school and they had ones that folded up and could go outside. He asked how would the bats and balls be loaned, and also that there is a large period of the summer when they were not in college.

The college will provide some bats and balls but they can also bring their own. They are keen to build a league,

Cllr Harewood asked if the area would be lit if it was dark, and Betty replied that it would be in the lunch times and there are 3 lunch times as they are staggered. Cllr Harewood asked how many months of the year it would be used, and Betty replied that it would be used whenever it wasn’t raining. All the enrichment clubs at the moment were indoor.

Cllr Wilcock said he went to the college and there wasn’t much to do in the break times and therefore he would support this proposal.

 

Moss Rose Scouts, Victor Crawford, Treasurer, spoke of their grant which is to buy a secure storage shed, they use Christ the King School and now there is no longer enough room as they get more equipment. There is an area at the school where they can put the shed but there needs to be some land prep and the £2000 budget would cover 2/3rds of the cost. They would also be able to bring some tents down from Barnswood, so they can do tent pitching closer to home.

Cllr Willcock commended the work of the scouts and understood the need to have the storage and is fully supportive.

Cllr Bennett-Wake asked if they planned to grow the group and Victor said this was the plan, but they needed parent helpers and leaders. And they have talked about Squirrel groups, which would be for the very young children.

No representation attended the meeting.

8.2      CAB

Will McKellar, CEO of the CAB, attended the meeting to update on the CAB services.  They are seeing a steady number of individuals; however, those individuals have many more issues. The main issues are money related.

Where they have been able to help people increase their income is by apply for and gain welfare benefits.

Many people still have a negative income and no matter how much they help people with debt etc. they are still in negative income. This issue is not just a local problem, it is a national problem.

Two case studies have been provided which show the sort of issues they deal with including immigration and discrimination.

They received some funding from the national CAB organisation and they are doing some sessions in Hurdsfield and Ash Grove. Plus, they have a stand in the hospital as the Local Area Coordinators have approached them about people unable to be discharged due to housing and financial issues and they are looking to see what the CAB can do.

 

Cllr Bennett-Wake asked at what point the negative income for people happened and Will said it was coming for years but the increase in utilities in gas last year was what tipped it over the edge. The decline has been going on for years. They had one client whose only form of heating was a clothes dryer.

Cllr Bennett-Wake said that case study 1 concerning the hate crime, was very upsetting, especially when there is a trial currently where a Trans teenage girl was murdered. She listed Macc Pride and Transcend as groups who can support the LBGTQ+ community.

 

Cllr Wilson thanked Will, and said they had both been at the opening of the Ash Grove Hub, which will be a family hub, and the CAB will have a presence there. The facilities are all under one roof to help residents with all sorts of issues from things the CAB can deal with to breastfeeding support.

 

Following on from a £75million cut in CEC funding, a 63% reduction, Cllr Wilson thanked the CAB for  continually being available to help those who really needed it.

 

Cllr Livingstone thanked the CAB too, and said as his day job is a Director of a social housing organisation that housing and homelessness issues are accelerating across the North West.

 

Cllr Hutchison also thanked the CAB and asked Will to thank the staff for the difficult issues they deal with and their tenacity.

Resolved: Objection

Macclesfield Town Council planning committee object to the above application and would like the planning officer to take into consideration the points of policy INF8- telecommunications infrastructure, specifically

Point 1. ii. There will be no significant adverse impact on visual and residential amenity, or on … the wider area.

 

This is in a residential area, not far from where 2 previous applications (22/2082M & 22/4445M)) have been made and refused for the following reasons:

 

22/2082M- ‘The Council hereby REFUSES approval for the following reasons: 1. The new 15 metre mast and associated equipment proposed, by reason of its size, bulk, design, height and prominent position, would form an overly intrusive and visually dominant addition that would be harmful to the character and appearance of the area. This would be compounded by a disproportionate level of associated equipment resulting in an excessive level of street clutter, detrimental to the character and appearance of the public realm. The development is consequently considered to be contrary to policies Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy Policy SD2 and Macclesfield Borough Local Plan Saved Policies RT2 and DC60 and guidance in the National Planning Policy Framework.’

 

22/4445M- ‘The Council hereby REFUSES approval for the following reasons: 1. The new 15 metre mast and associated equipment proposed would be unnacceptable by reason of its siting and appearance due to its size, height, and prominent position and would subsequently contrary to Part 16 of Schedule 2 to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (as amended). The proposals would also be contrary to Policies SD1 (Sustainable Development In Cheshire East), SD2 (Sustainable Development Principles) and SE1 (Design) of the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy and policies GEN1 (Design Principles), REC1 (Open Space Protection) and Policy INF8 (Telecommunications Infrastructure) of the Cheshire East Site Allocations and Development Plan Document, insofar as it relates to significant adverse impact on visual amenity and the character of the wider area.’

8.     Canal bridge 36

Cllr Mick Warren came to give an update on Canal Bridge 36. He has spoken with the Senior Architect from David Wilson homes. The canal access won’t be able to happen because of how long the gradient would have to be and they couldn’t see how you could get heavy machinery over the bridge to carry out such works. The Senior Architect from David Wilson homes is getting prices off his contractors to see about getting compacted ground works to go over the bridge to form a path from the Kings Park development over to Barracks Lane.

Cllr Mick Warren also had a meeting with Andrew Ramshall, Cheshire East Conservation Officer. He agreed that planning permission would be required but not listed building consent. He also couldn’t see a problem with removing the post in the middle of the bridge.

Next steps are to wait to hear back from the Senior Architect at David Wilson Homes and then meet with the Canal and River Trust about the updated plan.

 

9.     Date/Time and Place of Next Meeting

The next Planning Committee meeting will take place on 15th November 2023 7pm, in Macclesfield Library.

8.1      Local Police Unit

No representatives from the LPU could attend for the second meeting in a row, however Inspector Watkins will send a report to the Town Clerk next week.

Cllr Livingstone is disappointed but is aware that there is ASB in the town centre that they are trying to work on, however he requests a formal meeting with the MTC Central ward Councillors and the Cheshire East Council Central ward Councillors.

Cllr Bennett-Wake is also disappointed as after her surgery at the weekend parking and anti-social behaviour is an issue.

Cllr Harewood-Jones asked if we can ask if police and PCSO’s receive mental health training to carry out their job.

Cllr Thompson would like to ask them about the Right Care Right Person initiative.

Cllr Warren and Cllr Bennett-Wake attended a panel with the Police and Crime Commissioner and they are rolling out training on Mental Health over the next 6 months.

The Town Clerk is requested to contact the Chief Inspector with the above issues.

8.2      CAB

CEO, Will McKellar from the CAB, attended to update on their work.

There has been growth in most areas and growth in relationship and immigration enquiries and he confirms they are working with Cheshire Without Abuse.

The report shows the outlook is bleak with more and more enquiries on welfare benefits, debts, housing etc. Covid still impacts them with less volunteers but more people requesting help.

They do have specialist support for those with mental health issues, debt specialists, those with cancer and those with young families.

Cllr Bennett-Wake thanked Will for the report and said the case studies provided were informative yet upsetting. She asked about those on benefits and did they know what they were entitled to?

Will replied that benefits were harder to access now, compared to years ago, now they have to go online and create an account. Technology has passed them by.

CAB staff help people complete disability benefit forms as they very complex.

Cllr Livingstone, thanked Will and the CAB, and the need to support the CAB, as it is such a complex system, and the support makes such a difference.

Cllr Hutchison asked about numbers on the report, and that where there is clear growth, he asked if that meant if people had to wait for support. Will says that as the numbers increase so do the number of volunteers. So the waiting may come down but they are still waiting too long. They are aspiring to aim that everyone who rings gets answered by a real person.

Cllr Edwardes asked if CAB help people fill in the forms, as he has found those who do not have English as a first language sometimes struggle.

CAB help to enable those that can do it themselves, otherwise they help those who cannot fill in the forms. CAB use a commercial interpretation service.

Cllr Harewood- Jones asked if they refer to other agencies. Will replied that they sometimes help people to find a solicitor for legal matters, and they work with Age UK, Disability Information Bureau and Just Drop in.

 

8.3      CCTV

Resolved: CCTV purchased by MTC are to be used for community safety at the discretion of the Town Councillors and we will buy 3 cameras

 

Home locations to be:

  • Tesco Underpass
  • Becks Lane
  • Underpass near Travelodge
  • Approve a 3 year SLA for CCTV

9.2      Code of Conduct

Resolved: The above named policy was approved

9.3      Mayors Handbook

Resolved: The above named policy was approved.

Resolved: The above named policy was approved with the following amendment:

To add:

Whatever gift or hospitality is provided to you, other than a gift or hospitality of nominal value only (such as drink, or small items of stationery), you should report the circumstances and the type of hospitality to the Town Clerk. Small insignificant gifts of a value of less than £50, such as pens, diaries, calendars, mouse mats or mugs, may be accepted.

In order to protect your position and the reputation of your Council, you should exercise caution in accepting any gifts or hospitality which are (or which you reasonably believe to be) offered to you because you are an officer. The presumption should always be not to accept significant gifts or hospitality. However, there may be times when such a refusal may be difficult if it is seen as rudeness in which case you could accept it but must ensure it is publicly registered.

 

10   Budget 2024/25

Macclesfield Town Council Planning Committee Minutes

Minutes of the meeting held on Wednesday 30th August 2023 at 7pm at Macclesfield Library.

 

1.     Apologies for Absence

No apologise for absence

 

2.     Declarations of Interest

Cllr Barber declared a non-pecuniary interest in application 23/2967M. As a previous Cheshire East Councillor and a Champion for Young People, he was contacted by the applicant ‘Youth Fed’ to lobby for support. At the time, he indicated that as it was running up to the election his influence would be limited so he was unprepared to discuss it, so it doesn’t predetermine his views on the application.

 

3.     Public Participation

The meeting was adjourned to invite public comments and questions.

 

2 members of the public came to discuss application 23/2967M

David Caudwell and Alan Tinsley raised numerous concerns from themselves and neighbours on Loxley Close, Beswick Road and Oxford Road and want Macclesfield Town Council to join them in opposing this application. They understand that facilities are needed for the youth but feel there are numerous other existing places that could be used instead, for example Macclesfield College, Leisure Centre, Pavillion etc.

The points raised included:

  • A significant adverse noise level increase. This has been recorded as a 20db increase on Loxley Close, but this was taken place in the Easter holidays so not an accurate representation.
  • Significant bird/ wildlife impact
  • Site completely unsuitable- road not equipped for this amount of traffic
  • Security to residents- anti-social behaviour is already a problem with lots of youths hanging around at the moment before this application has even gone ahead. Numerous residents worried about how this will impact their lives.
  • The mental wellbeing of the local residents needs to be taken into account
  • Parking issues, not enough parking spaces would be provided

 

They ask MTC to hear their voice and note their concerns.

 

Cllr Sarah Bennett- Wake came to speak on application 23/3010M. She is a resident that backs on to this property and a councillor for MTC and Cheshire East on the Hurdsfield ward. Cllr Bennett- Wake wanted to make the Committee aware that when residents have been on to comment on this application, there are no drawings and not enough information online for them to comment on.

Cllr Bennett-Wake asked if the neighbours could be consulted again when this gets back put on.

 

The meeting was reconvened.

10. Glow Up grant applications

10.1 Henbury Travel

Macclesfield Town Council Planning Committee discussed this application in detail but they will not be providing Henbury Travel funding for their Glow- Up Grant application of a digital TV signage screen for the following reason:

  • The suggested work doesn’t satisfy the criteria of the Shop Front Guide, which would include:
    • ‘The proliferation of multiple advertisements should be avoided’
    • ‘Signage must not dominate the building façade and should relate to its character, scale and architectural features.’

 

10.2 Yas Bean

Macclesfield Town Council Planning Committee discussed Yas Beans Glow- Up grant application and have agreed to fund the improvements they wish to make (up to £1000) which include:

  • Repainting of chipped and cracked door frame
  • Repainting of logo due to a re-brand

  • Window painting at Christmas

The Planning Committee would like to congratulate Yas Bean on being the first business to receive a glow up grant.

 

10.3 Violet Salons

Macclesfield Town Council Planning Committee discussed Violet Salons Glow-Up Grant application in detail and have decided on the below:

  • The planters are already in place and the grant can’t be issued retrospectively. Macclesfield Town Council wouldn’t be able to grant funding for that aspect of work.
  • The lights requested will be able to be funded as the Planning Committee feel this will improve the appearance of the shop front in this instance.

They have requested funding to support the project for 1 year to access the NLP therapy. When people have completed that programme, and then they go on to help others as they receive a diploma.

Phil explained NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), he says he has been doing it from 6 months and it has changed his life, helped him overcome his addiction, and help those in the youth justice system, and to give something back to society.

He has found it a real benefit and helped improve his life.

 

Cllr Chris Wilcock thanked ROAR and said they do fantastic things in the community and are involved in St. Michaels Church.

Cllr Neil Puttick said NLP helps him to focus more and he finds it of benefit. He asked about the youth justice system. Emily explained they have buddies, who are people who have lived experience of offending and are there to help those to prevent further offending.

Cllr Ruth Thompson said there was an awful lot not know on trauma, and that the medical system now use the term ‘expert’ rather than lived experience and she is impressed that this will help those who are currently living this experience.

Cllr Sandy Livingstone said they do great work and some of the benefits are not quantifiable and go beyond expectation.

Cllr Fiona Wilson said she thinks what ROAR does is phenomenal and their success rates are fantastic. She also thanked them for all the work their Volunteers do to help the community and the Town Council free events.

Cllr Fiona Wilson also raised the issue that Inspector Watkins said he was meeting with the Football Club to look at the parking issues and that they would be given an update that has not happened. Clerk will contact Inspector Watkins on this matter.

 

Cllr David Edwardes also expressed he was disappointed that there was no representatives of the police in Tytherington ward. There are lots of issues with fly tipping at the moment and graffiti continues to be a problem. In the minutes the police said they had spoken to the person they thought was responsible for the graffiti and yet there were 31 instances that very week after. He has heard that they are coordinating on Instagram to publish pictures of their work. He has taken it up with the PCC, John Dwyer, who said he encourages people to keep reporting it so the police can build a picture and deal with it. Any instances can be emailed to the Assistant Town Clerk who will report them to the local police.

8       Community Delivery

8.1      Local Police Unit

Chief Inspector Christian Watkins sent his apologies.

8.2      CAB

The report was noted. Will McKellar, CO of the CAB, also attended the meeting and gave a verbal update.

Highlights from the report are:

  • CAB deliver to clients through information, advice and advocacy.
  • In recent years a lot of potential clients can find information out themselves and therefore they gave more advice and advocacy than ever and the issues are more and more complex.
  • Money advice debt clients mainly have some mental health issues and they will never be able to repay those debts.
  • They deal with a lot of employment issues.
  • Last quarter 909, unique clients and there were 1788 issues, before covid they dealt with 793 clients so there is a big uptick in clients.
  • They have lost a lot of volunteers since covid, so there is less open door sessions than there used to be but this is slowly improving.
  • Benefits and debt are still the majority of issues. Cost of living issues are driving people to apply for disability benefits even though they will not qualify as they try to maximise their incomes as much as possible.
  • More older people are applying for attendance allowance also, as lack of finances is driving them to look for other income. Many will qualify but also may have qualified for PIP.
  • Issues around housing as more landlords are selling houses as they cannot afford the mortgage increases. This is affecting the already affected rental, sector as there are less houses to rent.

 

Cllr David Edwardes thanked Will and said as he understands that landlords are allowed to put the rent up by the rate of inflation, he said some clients must be suffering and having no finances to live.

Will replied that you strip down someone’s expenditure and then look to maximise their income to help them budget financially. Now domestic fuel is exceeding the amount of many people’s income. They work with creditors to show they cannot pay and they can write off debt or wait for repayments.

 

Cllr Sandy Livingstone also thanked Will and the CAB. He said he works in the social housing sector so he understands there is not enough social housing and at the same time the private rental sector is also getting squeezed,

 

8.3      CCTV

Resolved: To purchase 2 cameras and Clerk and Mayor to liaise with CCTV as to determine where the home location will be.

 

9       Governance Review

9.1      Standing Orders

Resolved: The amendments in the above document were approved.

9.2      Terms of Reference for Full Council

Resolved: The above document was approved.

9.3      Events and Stall Contractor Allocation Policy

Resolved: The above policy was approved.

 

 

10   Cheshire East Council Bus Consultation

Resolved:

·         Community Transport Committee Sub group to submit response.

  • Clerk is also to invite D&G and FlexiLink to the Transport Subgroup.

           

11   Cheshire East Council Library Services Top Up Scheme

Resolved: The Councillors discussed the matter, and agreed library services are vital, however as over half of the Town Council income already goes toward services previously provided by CEC they do not wish to express interest in the top up scheme at this time.

 

12   South Park Pavilion

The report was noted.

 

13   Youth Engagement

Resolved: The proposal in the report was approved, plus the amendment that Cllr James Barber is approved as Youth Champion.

Resolved: The proposal in the report was approved.
