Consultations

Where the decision is likely to have an impact on the general public, a special consultation process is held to gather the views of the community. The consultation may take the form of a questionnaire, public meetings, exhibitions, posters or all of these, depending on the issue.

We regularly carry out consultation exercises before taking decisions on council services and strategies - here you can find out information on current consultations.

A direct feedback form is included in each consultation.

Highways England

Highways England are consulting on their proposals for the new A57 Link Roads which aims to reduce congestion through Mottram-in-Longdendale. Drivers travelling between Manchester and Sheffield often face delays when using the A57 and A628 Trans-Pennine route. This is because the route suffers from heavy congestion, causing unreliable journey times.

You can find out more about the project and details on how to get involved in the consultation on their webpage at www.highwaysengland.co.uk/A57-Upgrade  

The consultation was open until 17 December 2020.
