This email is from the senior Highways Officer at SMBC to the planning officer. We had had a meeting with him six months earlier to explain the dangerous nature of the proposed school entrance; he obviously didn’t listen. The safety of children is not important in Stockport.

I agree, I didn’t realise until I took over the file recently just how big the school is and how limited the drop off facilities. But better to raise it now than after the school opens and the kids are getting all muddy getting out on the verge. Then the cost of any remedial works would be likely to fall to the Area Committee who probably wouldn’t thank me for it.
