Call for further action to reduce the availability of payday loans.

 

Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is calling for further action to reduce the availabilty of payday loans.

He said, "Businesses in Cheshire East (CE) should not be allowed to change the type of business operating on a site without a fresh application to the Council. This would give an opportunity for the Council to refuse an application for any further payday loan shops. I am concerned with the proliferation of such businesses. The Council should be working to create more “mixed” high streets to help people avoid “debt traps”. I believe that CE should be encouraging our residents to approach responsible lenders, like Credit Unions. This move on planning will help keep local people away from the clutches of the pay day loan companies, who charge astronomical rates of interest, which can wreck the lives of vulnerable people in our Borough."
