Bollington Town Council Land and Property
Bollington Town Council “owns” very little of the public space or property in the town. Much of what was in the ownership of the Urban District Council was transferred to Macclesfield Borough Council in the local government re-organisation of 1974.
This subsequently became Cheshire East Council and it is this authority who manages most of our streets, verges and parks.
The Town Council owns the Town Hall and is looking to take on the land behind it.
The Civic Hall was also transferred to the Town Council. This includes the car park.
Cheshire East Council rents the library part of the building back from Bollington Town Council.
Land and Assets
Bollington Town Council tends not to own much in the way of land and where it does it tends to be small pockets that have been leased or transferred from Cheshire East Council for a specific reason.
Examples of this are the allotments at Heath Road and Harrop Road and the land upon which the new war memorial stones stand, although the rest of the Memorial Gardens are owned by Cheshire East Council.
Other assets owned, or maintained by the Town Council include:
- The Millennium Cross
- War Memorial and War Memorial stones
- Four stone bus shelters
- Five notice boards
- Some but not much street furniture
- Multi-Use Games Area
- Small patch of land near Turner Rise
