Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

●● In our Fe­bru­ary 11 edi­tion we re­ported that work is go­ing to start on the £290m Manch­ester Air­port Re­lief Road. The 10km dual car­riage­way is said to clear the way for a new spur to be built to ease con­ges­tion around Poyn­ton.

Su­san McLeod said: “Prob­a­bly an­other waste of money.”

Doug Pick­ford said: “I re­call a sim­i­lar plan in the mid 1960s. Still wait­ing of course.”

Andy Swallow said: “Be­lieve it when I see it.” ●● In our Fe­bru­ary 11 edi­tion we re­ported that de­vel­op­ers are fac­ing a legal battle to buy up land to make way for a £90m town cen­tre re­gen­er­a­tion scheme. Busi­nesses and landown­ers have re­fused to sell their prop­er­ties and are set to take their fight to a public in­quiry.

Mel Pear­son said: “I have lived in Macclesfield most of my life and I love its her­itage, but this can­not carry on. The town cen­tre is dy­ing. Some­thing needs to be done now not in years to come.”

Sheila Smith said: “I don’t think it will ever be done in my life­time and I’m only in my fifties. Macc is an ab­so­lute dis­grace. Mill Street needs re­nam­ing char­ity shop street. I go out of town to shop as not a de­cent shop th­ese days as all closing.”
