Cobbler's Cottage, Chapel Lane

Reported via desktop in the Fencing/Walls category anonymously at 14:55, Friday 22 April 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3475835.

Public verge on the southern side has been enclosed by a new fence. The new fence is beyond the registered boundary of the adjacent property (red line in map attached) The fence is very close to the highway edge, on an already narrow stretch, reducing the available area for pedestrians to avoid oncoming traffic. The western end of the fence has a post which significantly reduces the splay for the driveway. Delivery drivers with larger vehicles have commented on the difficulty they now have accessing my property, often having to swing onto the opposite verge to ensure clearance on turning in & out. I also have difficulty as my main vehicle is a transit van. The fence was erected whilst I was on holiday in March, so was unable to raise a query at the time.

  • Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.

    Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.

    We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.

    During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
