Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has welcomed the decision to introduce double yellow lines around the Berkeley Primary School in Rope. (See attached plan and e-mail below)
He said," I have campaigned for this measure for some time and I am pleased that the Cheshire East Council has taken it forward.
There are serious parking problems at the beginning and the end of the school day at the top of Lochleven Road and in Rope Bank Avenue at the junction with Laidon Avenue. Parents dropping off and picking up at the school park at the junctions which makes it very difficult for vehicles to pull out safely. Also some parents park in front of drives and this makes it impossible for residents to get their cars out. Local residents are rightly angry at the careless parking of a small minority of parents and I hope the action that is being taken will solve the problem to a large degree. In the meantime, before the yellow lines appear, I call on the small minority of parents who park inconsiderately not to do so. The Police continue to monitor the area and will not hesitate to hand out fines if inappropriate parking occurs. I am pleased that the work is to be done during the school holidays to prevent unnecessary traffic congestion. "
