Local residents are being invited to have their say about proposals to make part of Chorley Hall Lane one-way and create 18 new 24 hour parking spaces.
Since he was elected as ward councillor for Alderley Edge in May 2015, Councillor Craig Browne has been contacted by several residents who raised concerns about the safety of the footpath over Chorley Hall Lane railway bridge.
As a result he has been working with Cheshire East Highways to explore options for making the footpath safer for pedestrians and people with pushchairs or wheelchairs.
Councillor Craig Browne said "Various options have been considered, inlacing the possibility of installing traffic lights or making structural alterations to the bridge.
"Unfortunately, we only have a limited budget available for the work and whilst these options may be among the most popular, they are simply not feasible taking into account the funds available.
"I have therefore asked Cheshire East Highways to draw up proposals for a one-way system* between Greenlands Walk and Carlisle Street, which would both allow the footpath to be widened and create some much needed additional on-street parking spaces."
He added "It is possible to implement this scheme at the relatively low costs of £10,000."
Councillor Browne has set up a resident's survey, which can be completed online.
He continued "I would like to reassure you that nothing will happen until a formal consultation has been carried out by Cheshire East Council later in the year and also a traffic assessment undertaken."
