Prince’s & Lady’s Inclines
Prince’s and Lady’s Inclines are fantastic local amenities offering natural woodland walks and historical interest all within a 5 minute walk of our village centre.
In order to maintain and improve the Inclines now and for the future, Poynton Town Council has been working with local residents, Inclines users, tree specialists, Cheshire East Trees Officers and other interested parties, to develop a long term maintenance plan.
At the core of this plan are two documents:
A Woodland Management Plan setting out the Town Council’s strategy and programme of works for the woodland along the Inclines. This document is available to view or download HERE.
A set of Policies and Procedures showing the responsibilities of the Town Council, Inclines neighbours and users in relation to the Inclines. This is available to view or download HERE.
As well as protecting the woodland, the Town Council is keen to increase the usage of the Inclines through improving the footpaths and signage etc. Volunteers are being sought to form Inclines Ground Force, a team to help clear footpaths and tidy debris as well as learn a bit more about the Inclines’ nature and history.
Pride in Poynton - Poynton Pick and Tidy Group
Show ‘Pride in Poynton’ by making a real difference to the presentation of your local neighbourhood.
As well as the twice-yearly working day event on the Inclines, we also have a small team of volunteer litter pickers, ‘Poynton Pickers’, who regularly pick litter from areas in Poynton.
We’re looking to build upon this and encourage residents and businesses to join the ‘Poynton Pick and Tidy Group’ improving the presentation of public areas in Poynton.
If you would like to find out more, enjoy light gardening and would be happy to get involved, please contact Sharon Duke, Communities Co-ordinator on 01625 872238, for an informal, no obligation chat.
