Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester is calling on developers to sort out the parking problems on a new housing development before it is adopted by the Council. (See below) He said,
" The developers need to take action to prevent vehicles cutting up the grass verges when they park on them and to stop non residents taking up the parking places of residents. This relatively new development of good quality private housing is being made to look unsightly due to thoughtless parking by a few. (see attached photos) Parking generally in the centre of Willaston is a major problem. Wistaston Road is the main narrow road through the village, with rows of terraced houses, many of which have no off road parking. This was an issue raised by the Parish Council and others when the planning application for the Meadow View development was submitted, but unfortunately the Planning Department chose to ignore the substantial objections and approve the development. Some of the residents have suggested that some of the grass verges could be removed to provide more parking space. Also a 'residents only parking' scheme could be considered."
Meadow View resident Kerry Dennis said," The non-permitted vehicles are causing severe problems. Sometimes the vehicles can be very awkwardly parked and can prevent residents from entering and exiting with ease onto Wistaston Road."
