Styal Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan Needs You!

Styal Parish Council is developing a Neighbourhood Plan which will give Styal residents the power to shape the future development and growth of the village. This means that Styal can create policies, which are legally binding, to decide – amongst other things – where new housing developments can be sited and the type and look of those homes.

A Neighbourhood Plan is Community led and we need volunteers from the Community to help create the Neighbourhood Plan by contributing your thoughts and ideas on what Styal should look like in the future. Your involvement would not be very time consuming and would only require you to attend occasional meetings and workshops. For more information please click here

About the Council
Got a Question


As a Parish we do have some unusual features, we are just south of one of the busiest Airports in Europe, we adjoin the busy towns of Wilmslow and Alderley Edge and yet we retain a really leafy ambiance surrounded by some very pleasant farm land including prize winning herds of cattle together with cereal crops and sheep to make Styal a quite unique location.

Styal-historyOur history dates back to well before 1780 but it was in 1784 that a mill was erected on the River Bollin and that Mill, in its significantly extended form, went on to provide work and homes for many of the Styal inhabitants  for many years with a Chapel, School and shops being added over the years. Amazingly all such are still in place and active to this very day. The short rows of two storied dwelling with cosy alleyways separating them are still thriving today and house many of our residents as part of the National Trust Site in what is now referred to as Quarry Bank Mill.

So, whether you are currently a resident or someone interested in our village, we hope you will find this web-site useful. Feel free to contact us, via the contact page, with any items, comments or issues that you feel are worthy of some action or consideration.
