Welcome to the website of the
Handforth Parish Council

Handforth Crest

Handforth is a fast-growing community connecting Cheshire to Greater Manchester, with a major retail centre and luxury car outlets, and easy access to Manchester Airport.

The aim of this website is to provide you with information about how the Council operates, detailing decisions it has made in the past and what it hopes to achieve in the future. 

The Council was formed in May 2011 and consists of seven councillors representing three wards.  Meetings are held in public and time is always set aside for public participation on agenda items.

In addition the Council holds committee meetings dealing with specific areas, Finance, Employment and Planning & Environment.  As the work load in these areas varies throughout the year, meetings are held as and when required, with planning meetings being the ones held most frequently.  

The timings, agendas and minutes for all meetings are displayed further down on this page together with all the principal activities of the council and details of its members.

21/0787M 4, HALL ROAD, HANDFORTH Erect 6 ft 6 inch (< 2metres) wooden fence along our boundary at the front of our property; total of 16 panels (6 ft panel on 6 inch base board). Erect 5 ft (< 2metres) wooden fence along our boundary at the front corner of our property; total of 2 panels (4 ft panel and 1 ft base board). The new fencing replaces / upgrades an existing fence that is approximately half way along the front (north) boundary today and lower in height (A and B indicate this on the attached Existing Block Plan document). The new fencing along the front boundary will extend to the drive entry gate post where there is no existing fence today (D indicates this on the attached Existing Block Plan document) . The existing fence to the west of the property we are not changing (C indicates this on the attached Existing Block Plan document) . Existing boundary hedges along the front of our property are 8-9 ft high and higher than the proposed new fence. Once the new fence is installed these existing hedges will later be removed. Although the fences will be less than 2m according to planning guidance, as the boundary is adjacent to a highway (our road Hall Road) planning guidance indicates approval may be needed as new fence is > 1m in height by a highway even though it replaces hedges that are higher. The fence will not obscure the view for drivers as this is just a boundary to our garden and the road junction is many metres away from the boundary. We are opposite St.Benedicts church that provides sunday school so not sure if the being opposite a "school" guidance would apply that allows fencing up to 2m anyway. St. Benedicts school is further down Hall Road so pedestrian and vehicle traffic pass our boundary (pedestrian footpath is on the church side of Hall Road opposite our property.
