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.

Styal Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan Subgroup is in charge of developing the plan and there is now has a dedicated website on which you will find more information and a questionnaire which enables you to provide the group with your ideas and opinions on how a future Styal village should look.

The next Styal Parish Council meeting will take place on Monday 21st February 2022 at 7.30pm in Earlams Log Cabin

Please see the Meetings Page for more information


Sadly. Ben Gray has resigned from the Council and everyone will miss his gentle demeanour and valuable contributions to Council matters. We all wish him well for the future.

Ben’s resignation means that there is a vacancy on the Council which can be filled by co-option, unless Cheshire East receives 10 applications for the post which will force an election to be called.

Styal Parish Council is looking for someone who cares for Styal Village and wants to help protect its future. Formal qualifications are less important than enthusiasm and the willingness to join a team who work hard to try to solve the many issues affecting Styal.

Additional details about the vacancy can be found HERE and the Cheshire East Formal Notice HERE

Please feel free to email the Clerk, Sue McDonald for further information  clerk@styalparishcouncil.org.uk

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.
