Footpath along full length of Monks Lane
Reported via desktop in the Footway category anonymously at 15:03, Tuesday 9 August 2022
Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3741810.
Footpath is in a poor (in places dangerous) state along the full length of Monks Lane. In places it is not wide enough for a single person and pedestrians are forced on to the road. It is certainly not wide enough for a children's buggy or a wheelchair. This is especially dangerous on the bend just before the church. Contributing factors include overgrown hedges, encroachment of the verges on to the path and weeds between the road and the path.
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.
Thank you for your patience.

We have assessed the issue and added it to our improvement programme for repair over the longer term. This means we are unlikely to do any improvement work here during the current financial year. Our programmes sometimes change if more funding becomes available. You should check our website for any updates. You can find details of the work planned for this location and where it currently sits on the programme through our website: https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ highways_and_roads/ road-maintenance/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022/ road-repair-and-improvement-programme-2021-2022.aspx
