This important document, Making the Transition: A Green Infrastructure Plan for Wilmslow and Handforth, was rolled out to the public at the Artisan Market on Saturday 18 May.
Despite it being a cold day, the interest displayed was encouraging and many people stopped at our stall to hear more. Transition Wilmslow’s Environment & Planning Group were especially pleased that the Manchester University students – Jake, Becky, Simon and Matt – who had researched and written the report for their MSc course, were on hand to explain their project.
The report highlights how important our gardens are in making the area a green and pleasant place and additionally underlines their role in protecting against climate change, so we handed out a leaflet Top Tips for Wildlife Gardening giving information on capitalising on this asset and encouraging wildlife in our gardens.

Following on from the successful strategy workshop in December which reviewed the overall aims and objectives of the landscape project, we are now proposing to get into the detail with some hands on work. At this workshop on 9th February we will draw on the full range of information from the desk study work that Jonathan Porter has assembled in the first stage of the project.
The objective is to produce a draft landscape character map for Wilmslow (including Handforth and Styal) covering both the built up area and the surrounding countryside. This will not only be a valuable template for our work in Transition, but will also help us in responding to the consultation on the Local Plan for Cheshire East.
We are keen to have input from anyone who wishes to contribute, irrespective of whether you have previously been involved, and would particularly like input from a cycling perspective.
Tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and fruit will be available but we would ask if you could bring along a packed lunch as, due to the leisure centre rules, we are not able to provide any food in the meeting room. However you will be able to buy food at leisure centre cafe. The workshop will run from 10am to 3pm at Wilmslow Leisure centre.
