Two new signs have mysteriously appeared on Horseshoe Lane which neither Cheshire East Council or Alderley Edge Parish Council installed and neither of them know who did.
The first sign close to the junction with Wilmslow Road announces that the speed limit on the road is 10mph and the second, located further round and outside some houses, states that only permit holders can park there between 9am and 9pm from Monday to Saturday.
The signage was raised at the Parish Council meeting on Monday 9th November because they had received a letter from Emersons enquiring about it.
Geoff Hall, Chairman of Alderley Edge Parish Council, said "A parking restriction sign has appeared on Horseshoe Lane, people seem to have assumed it was put up by us. Mike Taylorson has been to see it. It has not been put up by us but they seem to have linked it to our parking review. We have responded to Emersons."
Speaking after the meeting Geoff Hall said that the Parish Council thinks they may have been put there by a local resident and added "I'm also told that the sign is on private land so not in any case within the jurisdiction of either CEC or AEPC."
A spokesperson for Cheshire East said "Cheshire East Council have not installed the signs on Horseshoe Lane. At present we do not know who did."
I am waiting for confirmation from CEC as to whether they intend to remove the signs or whether, given it is a private road, people are allowed to put their own parking and speed limit signs up.
