Your Local Scheme
Formed in 2010. Covers about 20 properties on Chester Avenue and Silver Birch Mews near Kingsway. Abuts with another Chester Avenue co-ordinator (started same time) who covers about 20 properties on Chester Avenue. We work closely with Kingsway Homewatch which covers about 20 properties. The scheme was started in response to continuing high levels of ASB, drug issues, and low level crime in the area. The police assisted in our formation. Together we formed the Dukinfield East Residents Association (DERA) in 2011. We work closely with Astley Sports College on Yew Tree Lane who very kindly allow us to use their premises for meetings. DERA is currently investigating the land/green space at the rear of Chester Avenue and Greenbooth Close with a view to claiming it as a community green space, perhaps even becoming a play area for young children. The Dukinfield-Stalybridge ward Cllr. Dorothy Cartwright is the groups President.
