Funding for the implementation of a new parking scheme on Mottram Road has been approved.
Councillor Craig Browne chaired a Last Thursday I chaired a meeting of the Wilmslow Area Highways Group on Thursday, 7th March, which covers Alderley Edge, Wilmslow & Handforth.
During the meeting it was confirmed that he has secured £6000 funding of £6,000 from the group's £21,835 annual budget to enable a new scheme to be implemented on Mottram Road in response to requests from residents, going back to 2016.
The scheme will see the creation of an additional six or seven long-stay parking bays on Mottram Road, whilst the double yellow lines on the cricket field side of Mottram Road will be extended to prevent double parking, as well as providing some additional protection to the grass verge.
Councillor Craig Browne said "I am pleased to have secured the funding for this project, which I know residents have been waiting a long time for. The scheme will be implemented during the course of the 2019/20 financial year, although at this stage I cannot give an exact date. I am pleased that the funding will also enable some historic issues with the parking bays on Trafford Road and Stevens Street to be addressed."
