Consultation on parking issues in Wilmslow

Cheshire East Council is launching a consultation to seek views on a range of proposals for improving parking in Wilmslow.

The consultation is open for six weeks, with public exhibitions arranged forWednesday 13 February from 6pm-8pm and Wednesday 6 March from 6pm-8pm at the United Reformed Church meeting rooms, in Chapel Lane, Wilmslow SK9 1PR,where key findings from the parking review study will be shared.

The council has continued in its commitment to 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; and

● Options for the creation of additional parking spaces.

Councillor 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.”
