Changes on the way for Ryleys Lane car park


Following a meeting earlier today (Tuesday, 28th June), Councillor Craig Browne is delighted that a number of changes have been approved for the car park off Ryleys Lane.

Cllr Browne said "Officers from Cheshire East have agreed to fully resurface, mark out and enforce the Ryleys Lane Car Park. Unfortunately, we will be losing the maple tree in the centre of the car park, along with some of the existing hedgerow, but this will allow for the layout to be reconfigured and for some additional spaces to be created.

"Following this, parking at Ryleys Lane will become enforceable and any parking outside a designated bay will be subject to a fixed penalty notice. The Car Park will need to be closed for a number of days whilst the work is carried out, so the plan is to do this whilst the schools are on holiday at the end of October."

The car park off Ryleys Lane will remain free, at least for the time being.

Brilliant news just need to make it reasonable to stay for an hour or so to visit the park, schools and village then charge extortionate charges to stop all day space hogging that currently happens on a daily basis by out of village users

Good Morning Emma,


the last time it was checked, approx. 60% of the cars there were there between 10 am and 3.30 pm i.e. 'all day'.
The other approx. 40% changed over.

This was measured over a year ago so things may have changed.

It is good news to hear that additional spaces will be created.
To lay down a yardstick; today there were 42 cars parked in there.
We assume that Cheshire East will pay for this. I wonder what it will cost. The last time 'they' quoted on works in that car park, 'they' told us that £70,000.00 would be needed. But if we are not paying ourselves, that is fine and dandy ?
