Forecourt changes at Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport has announced that, as of June 2018, it will be introducing charges for dropping off passengers at its three terminals in order to reduce the major congestion currently being experienced at its terminal forecourts. The airport will also be introducing a dedicated free drop off site from where free shuttle services will operate to all three terminals.

It is hoped this will contribute to a major reduction in the number of individual vehicles trying to access the most congested parts of the campus. In parallel, an Express Drop-off charge will be introduced in the areas directly outside the three terminals and Ground Transport Interchange, like those already in place at almost all other UK airports.

From June onwards, unless the free drop off service is used, dropping off passengers or being dropped off at the front of any of the terminals will cost £3.00 for a five minute stay or £4.00 for a ten minute stay

Road Closure: Ashley Bridge, Ashley Road near Hale

The closure was due to finish on Sunday 15 April, however as the stone blocks were being removed to re-position/rebuild them, they have been breaking up. Consequently the rebuilding of the wall cannot be finished before 15th April.

The closure will be removed on Sunday 15th April and traffic lights will control traffic flow until new stone blocks are availabile. There is a six week lead time for manufacturing the stone blocks and it is anticipated that a new road closure will be rebooked for June.

Cheshire East Council will notify residents when the next road closure is to take place

Super Fast Broadband

Mr Henry Brooks has moved his offices from Knutsford to Ashley Hall and has installed superfast broadband for his staff and nearby Tatton Estate properties.

Mr Brooks is kindly considering extending a similar service to Ashley residents, especially those who struggle to get any workable Internet speeds. The service would provide a download speed of 20 Mbps potentially up to 100 Mbps.

The present system is priced at business rates and so quite expensive for single households. However a much more attractive package could be arranged if a cluster of residents (in reasonably close proximity to each other) express interest

If you are interested in the superfast broadband, please contact the Clerk in the first instance.
