Facilities, Infrastructure & Economic Development Standing Committee

This Committee considers issues such as maintenance of the Civic Hall, the security and maintenance of the two Town Council-owned parks and other areas managed by the Town Council, maintenance of street lights owned by the Town Council, the Coppice Road Allotments, enforcing the bye-laws that govern the use of Poynton’s parks and open spaces, the provision of benches, bins and notice boards, relations with Poynton In Bloom, and maintenance of Princes and Lady’s Inclines, both owned in most part by the Town Council. The Committee also works with Cheshire East Council on issues such as highway maintenance, street lighting, gritting and tree maintenance. On economic development, this Committee is charged with promoting Poynton and the visitor economy, which includes liaising with all businesses located in the village, as well as with the COPS Committee (see here) on community events.
