The Council (MTPC) would like to invite everyone to give us their opinions and designs for a Logo for your council.  The competition will close 1st November and email your entries to: mickletraffordpc@gmail.com; or hard copy to me at 2 Dee Road. The brief is that it needs to incorporate the title MTPC in some way and a cheerful positive reflection of living in Mickle Trafford. 

Next full council meeting is on the Monday 11th October at 6.30pm in the Village Hall. The Planning and Finance committees meet on the 4th October 6.30pm. All are welcome to attend. If you would like to talk to Councillors there is a ten minute slot at the start of the meeting for you/public to speak. Even better if you are considering being a Councillor! One position still available.

If you notice any unusual incursion  on to land  locally with  intentions to create an illegal camp at any time please call the Council helpline on 0300 123 7035 now please. If you see something you are concerned about on the A56 around Morley Bridge call 101 and ask for Police response and report the location of concern. They will be expecting your call. It’s a case of when, so a quick reaction is paramount please.

When the present Mickle Trafford Village was constructed in the 1970s a planning condition was placed on most properties that no fence, wall, gate or other means of enclosure shall be erected beyond the foremost wall of any dwelling which front on a highway without the consent of the District Planning Authority. This condition is still believed to be in force so if you are contemplating placing a fence in front of your house please check with the local planning authority, CWaC, first or else you may end up just having to take it down again.”    For more information please look under the tab ‘Neighbour plan’ for an up to date paper on these subjects with a reflection on what was decreed way back in the conception of the two open plan estates.
