A message from Councillor Bernard Sharp


The following news release has just been added to the council website:
Greater Manchester Police Authority
As Trafford’s only member on the Greater Manchester Police Authority, it follows that crime and disorder issues, both in our Ward and the Borough are of immense importance to me. I am therefore able to deal with your concerns at a very high level despite the restrictive funding. We now have a very effective neighbourhood team under the command of our new Inspector, Clark Bowers. Whilst I accept that there is never any room for complacency, I am pleased to say that the levels of crime and disorders issues in our ward have substantially fallen and I will continue to keep a close watch on these matters.
Manchester Airport

I am a representative on Manchester Airport Consultancy Committee, who meet regularly at the airport. Airport matters do have an affect on the “well being “our Ward, such as traffic congestion, aircraft noise and particularly night flights. Whenever possible I do discuss these matters on behalf of all residents, and if you require more detailed or technical information please either contact me or follow the link to..
