Can you please tell me where ‘U lock it self-storage’ are planning to set up business in Lostock Gralam please? I haven’t noticed anything about this company in the Parish council minutes. Regards, John. Thank you for your message, a good few years ago planning was passed by CWAC for self storage next to the railway station car park. I haven’t heard anything more however I will make a few phone calls and report back Best Regards Lyndsey Sandison Clerk
I regularly visit the park in Lostock on Manchester Road with my children but a couple of times this week there have been adults drinking there during the day. Some people may think they are fine but it's a children's play area, there's a pub down the road for that! Also they're definitely needs to be a zebra crossing on the Manchester Road just up from the newsagents across from the park as it's a nightmare to cross. To cross the road safely you either have to walk down to the car garage or up to the co-op as there's nothing in between. Hope something gets sorted soon. Thanks for your msg. The PC would also like a crossing and is looking into it with CWAC. Best Regards Clerk to the Council
Hi, Wrould you be able to update us on the current process of the road & pavement resurfacing on the Bellway development please? I saw that it was mentioned in previous meeting minutes but nothing was promised date wise - do you have an idea of when we can expect it to be completed please? Thank you Lucy Heyliger Hello, thanks for the comment I’ve sent an email to Bellway for an update and will post it here once received. Thanks Lyndsey Hi update now received: Bellway is struggling to agree with the Local Authority Clerk of Works a suitable way forward to enable roads and footpaths to be finally surfaced. They have placed all remaining works with a contractor who is working directly with CWAC. There is a meeting scheduled to take place between Bellway contractors and CWAC to establish if sewers can be adopted, once this has been agreed with Mr Warren Chatterton final surfacing can be carried out. Unfortunately at the time of writing Bellway is unable to give any detailed dates. Bellway is working closely with CWAC to get this matter completed ASAP.
I was very interested to read the comments from Councillor Shore in relation to the current air quality in and around Lostock Gralam and Northwich in general. It’s quite evident that queueing traffic would have a deleterious effect in relation to Nitrous dioxide levels, therefore would it be possible to ask councillor Shore what the CWAC strategy is to mitigate this impact when carrying out roadworks involving queueing traffic in and around the town?
I can confirm that the milepost is indeed at the Hall lane crossroads, and is in front of the Motorite garage.
Can you update me on current progress on the milepost at the crossroads please. I first raised this in 2016 as it is a listed building. Thank you. _________________________________________________________________ Hi please can you confirm the exact location of the sign? NGR 685734 relates to a canal sign just over the canal bridge on Manchester Road. I thought that the sign was on the Hall Lane/Manchester Rd Crossroads just in front of the car sales garage. Many thanks L Sandison (Clerk)
I must agree with the writer below, I am always having to dodge dog poo when walking to local events with my toddler, and yes it is bad outside the newsagents and near the school. It really is disgusting and not fair on little children who get it on their shoes. Do people not realise its a health hazzard? Thank you for your comment, we will investigate the matter. Parish Clerk Update: Hi just to let you know I have requested that the Dog Warden visit our Parish and I've requested no dog fouling stickers for the lamp posts on School Lane and Stubbs Lane. We are also looking a further bins in the area. Best Regards Parish Clerk
I want to make a complaint about the litter along Manchester Road especially now subway and McDonald's has opened. I feel like I'm forever picking up one of their wrappers out of my garden. Also the dog faeces that keeps happening outside of Lostock Primary School along the road from there and down the side of the newsagents is disgusting, something has got to be done about it as it's everyday!! Children are treading in it on their way to school and it's not on. Something needs to be done this time and not just spray it pink! Thanks for your comments I have requested that the Dog Warden pay our Parish a visit and I’ve requested no dog fouling stickers for the lamp posts on School Lane and Stubbs Lane. Best Regards Clerk to Parish Council
If the current level of traffic disruption caused by the works at the junction of Griffiths road is indicative of what it will be like if 3-way lights are ever installed, then I think we need to have a serious rethink about viability. I must admit that having lived in Lostock for over 60 years, the last few years have been intolerable due to the volume of road works, a lot of which seem to be manned only when the contractor sees fit. I'm sorry, but I feel that given the level of disruption, this is not acceptable.
On the Sept minutes of the PC it says a verbal response was given regarding the TATA incinerator. Can we put some written words in to the web site for those who could not attend........its affects a lot of people and you are our voice of the community.......... Thank you for your comments. A TATA update page has now been created. I will also post any minutes received on this page too. Best Regards the Clerk
The milepost at the crossroads is falling into disrepair. This is a grade Ii listed building at Ngr 685734 and requires refurbishment, as it would be such a shame to lose a part of the history of the village. Thank you for your message. This is a project for the New Year and will be resolved soon. Regards The Clerk to Lostock Gralam Parish Council Has any progress been made on this? It's now mid-June. Thank you for your message, a quote to repair the sign will be on the next Agenda.
The amount of cars and lorries that pass through Lostock Gralam is raising all the time. This makes crossing Manchester road virtually impossible unless you walk down to the slow and easy to cross, there needs to be a zebra crossing installed across from the park. This will be the safest option for everyone to use especially children. I also think the cross road juction needs changing at the slow and easy aswell as a filter on the lights. Also is there enough money in the pot now for a picnic bench for the park? Thank you for your comments, the Zebra crossing is new suggestion however I will put it to the council. The Parish Council has instructed CWAC to conduct a light sequence analysis to look at the lights at the Slow and Easy, we are awaiting to hear back their recommendations. And thirdly yes we are having two picnic benches installed and three music boards at the Community Centre Park. Thanks for contacting Lostock Gralam Parosh Council
HS2 Public Meeting Information - SATURDAY 11th FEBRUARY 2017 at 10:00am LACH DENNIS VILLAGE HALL HS2 ROUTE CLARIFICATION INFORMATION ADVICE HELP DESKS DISPLAYS Q & A Refreshment's will be available at the Lach Dennis Coffee Morning until 12.00 We look forward to seeing you.
Has somebody put a curse on lostock Gralam, First the incinerator, now this . HS2, I first came to live here 20 yes ago It was a lovely place with no rush hour traffic,a perfect blend of town and country, I've just been looking at the colour bands for compensation, and realised Hs2 is offering me £7.500 compensation, a small amount for all the upheaval And loss of value in my property, i think hs2 needs to get real about this situation If they want to get the public on there side Dear Mr Ward Thanks for your comment. I understand where you are coming from, firstly the Parish Council has invited CWAC Highways to the next Parish Council meeting and has set 20 issues to be discussed and hopefully resolved. Secondly we are currently drafting the HS2 Consulation Reponse for Lostock Gralam, so your comments are welcome and will be considered in our response. Many thanks Lyndsey Sandison Clerk to Lostock Gralam
Any feedback with respect to the expected impact to the village of HS2 in terms of traffic during construction and the impact on local woodland would be much appreciated. It would also be helpful if the parish council could keep us informed of any proposals to re-route the A556. I must say that I do feel disappointed that the village has been somewhat sacrificed in order to accommodate the now infamous 'Tatton Bend'. Dear Mr Kettle, the Chairman and I have another HS2 meeting on 31.1.2017 where we hope to gain further information. I am currently in the process of writing the Lostock Gralam Parish Council response to the HS2 consultations. I will ask your questions at the HS2 meeting and report back. Best Regards Lyndsey Sandison clerk

Just wanted to say what a lovely event the Christmas tree lights switch on was, well done and thank you to all involved. The mulled wine and mince pies at the church hall afterwards was very nice. I have lived in lostock 6 years and felt it really brought the community together. The children singing carols from the school did very well. Looking forward to many more events like this.
Christmas Tree is a must, could this not be on the land near the slow and easy?! I'm fed up of being cut up by cars in the incorrect lane near the business park, there is going to be an acciden. I agree with the other author, a filter light is needed at the crossroads.
Christmas Tree and excellent idea. Yes to parking restrictions, it is a nightmare at the traffic lights near Slow and easy (right filter lane needed - come on Parish Council!!) Speed limit not adhered too...but think too much empasis on such a small strech of road. Lodge Lane (where I live) is far more dangerous as every day I witness cars, vans etc traveling the wrong way. It will probably be me with my 6 month old in the car that will have a head on collision one of these days when turning into the road. Can more be done to help make that road safe please, rather than thousands spent on a small stretch near the Watermead??? PS I did email last year about the state of the road at the crossroads at Slow and Easy, glad to see this has finally been sorted. Can right filter now be added for vehicles turning right into Hall Road???
