Cheshire East Council has introduced a "Shared Space Parking Scheme" on South Street in the village centre in response to concerns expressed by a number of nearby residents.
As a result of the scheme, businesses and visitors to South Street will continue to be able to park in the limited waiting on-street bays for up to two hours; however, residents of South Street who are in possession of a valid permit will be able to park without restriction.
Councillor Craig Browne said "A number of residents had contacted me to ask whether I could help, as none of them has access to any private off-road parking.
"Following a consultation of all residents and businesses on South Street, it was decided to introduce a "shared space" scheme, which I have funded through my 2022/23 Ward Member Budget.
"I am particularly pleased that as part of the scheme we have been able to create one or two additional parking spaces on South Street and George Street, to support the nearby businesses."
Unlike the "Residents' Parking Scheme" introduced in Clifton Street, Lydiat Lane & Carlisle Street a few years ago (prior to Craig Browne's election in 2015) is that non-residents of South Street will continue to be able to use the on-street bays for up to two hours.
