Stockport Times West - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

IN re­sponse to the let­ter ‘Coach Park Plan Anger’ ( Novem­ber 5), I would like to re­as­sure Chea­dle Hulme res­i­dents on some of the points made by the writer.

The coach drop-off area, for which plan­ning per­mis­sion has been granted, will be built on land owned by the school and will re­or­gan­ise the ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments for coaches bring­ing in and col­lect­ing pupils, which cur­rently im­pede traf­fic flow and present sig­nif­i­cant dif­fi­cul­ties to pedes­tri­ans and traf­fic in the area. This will im­prove traf­fic con­ges­tion in the lo­cal area, which has been a grow­ing con­cern for res­i­dents in re­cent years.

CHS En­ter­prises Ltd is a wholly owned sub­sidiary of the school and is the ve­hi­cle by which the school makes its fa­cil­i­ties avail­able to lo­cal com­mu­nity users, as it has for many years.

CHS En­ter­prises Ltd is not seek­ing to ar­range mu­sic fes­ti­vals and large scale out­door events, as the let­ter sug­gests.

I am sorry that the orig­i­nal let­ter has pro­moted such an ill-in­formed pic­ture of the school’s in­ten­tions – the coach drop-off area is not linked to CHS En­ter­prises Ltd and I hope that this re­sponse goes some way to al­le­vi­at­ing con­cerns.

If any lo­cal res­i­dents wish to con­tact me di­rectly with any fur­ther queries, they can do so at lo­calcom­mu­nity@ Sue Ker­shaw Chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Chea­dle Hulme School
