Cheshire East Council has launched a consultation to seek views on a range of proposals to resolve parking woes in Wilmslow.
A public exhibition was held on Wednesday 13th February, and another is due to take place tonight (Wednesday 6th March, 6pm-8pm) at the United Reformed Church meeting rooms on Chapel Lane – postcode: SK9 1PR.
At the event, key findings from the parking review study will be shared.
Cheshire East Council says it is reviewing the parking policies and issues as part of its new local transport plan.
Council officers have been monitoring the situation and gathering evidence to shape the proposals that are now being consulted on.
The proposals already suggested, but not limited to, include…
● New waiting restrictions to prevent inconsiderate or obstructive parking
● Adjustments to the balance between short-stay and long-stay parking places
● Creation of residents’ parking schemes
● Options for the creation of additional parking spaces
Cllr Don Stockton, Cheshire East Council cabinet member with responsibility for parking, said: “I very much welcome this consultation, which seeks to address the parking problems we have been experiencing in Wilmslow.
“We would welcome everyone to engage in this consultation and talk to us about the proposals, alongside the issues and implications they are experiencing with regards to parking.
“This will help us to reach solutions that are informed by local communities and means the proposals reached can hopefully reduce the problems as much as possible.”
