Noted also the reference to ' the village '.

Have we returned to what was. For many Poynton residents it has always been a village since Ernie ran the Farmers and Greasy Gwen's chippie.

And yes I have raised my objections to the proposed changes.

Having a couple of spare minutes, I have just compared the current 392 time table to the proposed one incorporating part of the P1 route.
On the proposed 392 route which will be followed into Poynton and then back on its current route to Hazel Grove they have increased the running time from 37 minutes to 42 minutes leaving 15 minutes to cover under half the current P1 route.
Had they left the running times as they were, using the proposed route in East Poynton, and then completing it in West Poynton to Hazel Grove as it does now it could easily be completed in the 20 minutes in Poynton.
The current P1 route takes 27 minutes in its entirety :?

That old chestnut. I searched my old posts because I knew I'd done this before. And what do I find, Howard's post was in reply to you!

And I also found this.

Like nedsram said then either village or town is officially acceptable. And I still prefer village.

I had already concluded that Poynton is a key service centre for the motorist. With the demise of all remote corner shops, the addition of drive in supermarkets and new major road links.
There is no reason why remote large areas of housing estates cannot support a local (to them) corner shop and facilities, apart from the attitude that the car is king.

Cheshire East have released the consultation results for the supported bus services http://moderngov.cheshireeast.gov.uk/documents/s58264/Bus%20Review%20Presentation%20for%20Scrutiny%20Committee%20September%202017%20-%20Final%202.pdf

Our bus routes got the 2nd and 3rd highest responses from the consultation.

The consultation feedback will now be incorporated into the review and recommendations made to be presented to the cabinet on the 7th November for approval. One of the things they have highlighted as being taken into account during this phase is the May 2018 Northern Timetables - this of course includes 2tph between Poynton - Macclesfield and Manchester.

Just checked Traveline and they are reducing the end to end timetable for Off Peak journeys knocking a few minutes off in each direction and all journeys on Saturday.

No changes to the route. Not sure if it is anything to do with them being hauled in by the traffic commissioner for an enquiry into Transport Act breaches.

Update having analysed the timetable data - The journey time reduction for off peak and Saturday service will be 5 minutes in Middlewood direction and 4 minutes in the Hazel Grove direction - there will be no change to departure time from Middlewood or Hazel Grove Argyle Street but the service will depart Poynton Church at approximately xx46 and xx14 between 1100 and 1400 and after 1800.
