Reader's Letter: We need action not procrastination


More than a year on since the parking survey and not a drop of orange lining paint has been used in Wilmslow since that survey.

What has happened is the removal of the temporary cones between Victoria Road and Albert Road on the west side of Alderley Road main exit southwards from the town.

Consequence? Within days is the resumption of casual free parking to the detriment of users.

Time there was some action is long overdue from the Town Council and Cheshire East Council!

Same all over. Our local school parkers do the same. Blocking drives and pavements.

We need double yellow lines on both sides of the road from the Kings Arms roundabout to the traffic lights outside the Rex cinema; and a traffic warden who issues parking tickets for anyone failing to comply. Simples !

Traffic wardens have not existed for a number of years.

Traffic wardens were under the control of the police.

Parking offences were decriminalised several years ago (ie taken out of the police's control) and the responsibility transferred to the local borough or unitary council to enforce.

Hence Cheshire East Council is responsible for the enforcement of parking offences in Wilmslow and Alderley Edge and surrounding areas.

The council employees who do this are called Civil Enforcement Officers. (CEO)

Civil Enforcement Officers currently are ineffective.
We need to stop inappropriate parking and create ‘freeways’.
