Community Governance Review

Published: 11 October 2021

Cheshire East are currently conducting a review of town and parish council governance arrangements across the Cheshire East Borough. The proposals for Poynton are an alignment of the boundary between the parish of Poynton and the parish of Adlington to a new boundary following Poynton Brook.

This would ensure that two houses on Spenlow Close are brought within the same parish (Poynton) as the rest of their street and local community. In addition is proposed that the number of councillors for both east and west wards would be reduced from 9 per ward to 7.
