COMMUNITY leaders are calling upon a school to rethink designs for fencing around its premises – to “enable a safer environment access.” Members of Cheadle Town Council recently debated the planning application which has recently been submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council by Cheadle Academy for “proposed safeguarding project, installation of new boundary and site fencing, gates with new two metre and 2.4 metre high paladin mesh vertical bar fencing and gates.” The debate saw councillors air concerns about future prospects of creating a pathway by the school for a “safer environment to access the schools in the future.”

NEIGHBOURS have lodged a slew of objections to planned new fencing at a Cheadle school. The Cheadle Academy in Station Road has submitted a planning application to install new 2.4 metre mesh fences as part of a 'safeguarding' project. Anti-social behaviour at the site outside of school hours has prompted the move.

A PLANNING application which initially brought concern to Moorlands residents has been approved by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC). A previous plan that was drawn up by developers Rob Duncan Planning Consultancy drew in several objections from members of the Cheadle community who voiced their worries over how busy Rakeway Road – the location of the proposals – can be. Objectors highlighted that the developments would be placed on a “blind bend” and that if residents parked on the road, it could cause serious safety risks to other motorists.
